Preparing Company Meetings for Your Organization

There are numerous reasons you might choose to host a company meeting—planning and strategizing, team building, on-site training, noteworthy lectures or maybe just some corporate-sponsored fun. Meeting planners know seamless scheduling, built-in breaks, networking opportunities, etc., make a successful corporate event, but there is one thing often forgotten. For a meeting to be truly memorable, the promotional products need to be top-notch.

When discussing pre-meeting planning with your Staples representative, the first step they will take is to learn about every facet of the your event and identify situations where introducing a promotional item makes sense for enhancing attendees’ experiences or giving them lasting memories of the event and you.

Here are five ideas to help get you started.

1. Team Apparel

When it comes to team bonding, uniformity is key. Outfit your employees in branded workwear such as color-coordinated polos, branded headwear or zip-up sweatshirts, and team pride will develop naturally. For company outings, it will be obvious that your group is the team to beat.

2. Travel Accessories

Company events tend to take place outside of the office, which means a lot of moving from point A to point B. Guarantee your attendees travel worry-free with giveaways like bags, power banks, Bluetooth®– enabled headsets or earbuds, sure to get any event off on the right foot.

3. Room Gifts

Nothing is more welcoming than a surprise hotel room gift. Invest in tech items like a portable Bluetooth® speaker or wireless keyboard, a journal with the meeting itinerary printed inside, or a box of chocolate branded with your logo. Your teams will be pleased to receive a useful memento from their trip.

4. Meeting Room Giveaways

For presentations and meetings, it helps to provide employees with the tools they need. Enlist the help of a leather portfolio or a nice pen that will enable attendees to record important information.

5. R&R Ideas

After a long day of meetings, everyone will love a chance to unwind and have some fun. Whether it’s a trip to the golf course or rock-climbing, they will appreciate activity outside the meeting room. Check out non-business products like branded golf shirts for golf events or T-shirts for company outings to let them know you went the extra mile for the corporate event.

The Trend

With tech integrating every facet of the business world, meeting planners need to provide attendees with portable power and Wi-Fi access so that they can have continuous use of their smartphones and tablets during meetings.

Meeting planners are now including a wellness component in their meetings and providing promotional products that support these activities.
