When executed effectively, annual meetings are a vital tool in boosting confidence, excitement, morale, camaraderie and company loyalty within an organization. With the intention to bring colleagues together to celebrate success, work on teambuilding, receive recognition and have face-to-face time with management, or to assess and communicate a vision or goals, it can be easy for these large-scale meetings to miss the mark and fall flat with attendees.
If you’re noticing that your attendees seem disinterested and unenthused, or are leaving their welcome gifts behind, it could be a sign that you need to breathe new life into your meeting or event; and what better way to do so than by motivating your attendees through interactive gifting events.
To gift meeting attendees successfully it takes thoughtfulness, expertise, creativity and strategy, otherwise a generous gesture of gratitude and recognition can quickly turn into a tired, uninspiring leave-behind. The biggest thing to remember when executing an effective gifting program at your next meeting is that your audience is diverse; each attendee comes with their own interests that fit their individual lifestyle.
Understanding generational differences, demographics, professional working preferences and lifestyles will help to provide the right blend of products to spark those interests. Once you’ve established the type of products your attendees crave, you need to be sure you’re offering them trending brands that they recognize such as Swarovski, Nest, Thule, Google, MCM, Kiehl’s and Viking. All of this can be attained by working with a partner that can deliver you the right balance of merchandise. ,
