Corporate Gifts for Virtual Events

There has been many changes in the past six months to what ‘corporate life’ looks like. Individuals from around the globe have seen their schedules and normal routines changed in some form. Society is evolving and adapting, whether you’re working remotely from your kitchen table, having virtual appointments with your doctors, or transitioning from yoga classes at the studio to at-home work outs in your living room. One industry that has felt this evolution the most is the events industry. Every type of event planning has been hit, whether that be private events such as weddings, or corporate events such trade shows, incentive trips, and fundraisers. Virtual events have become the new normal, and according to a survey posted in Forbes, a Northstar Meetings Group survey showed that event planners are seeing increasing demand for all things virtual for the next 12-18 months.

 

Since we know that virtual events are here to stay, the question is how do we make virtual events as exciting and profitable as an in person event would be? In the corporate world, how do you excite guests to attend a virtual presentation from their home when they normally would be at a tropical resort enjoying the presentation as part of their incentive trip? Event planners during these uncertain times will have to think outside of the box to promote virtual events and create the same level of excitement.

 

One creative way to excite attendees of virtual events is through corporate gifts and promotional products. One positive side of virtual events is that they are budget friendly, meaning the money that would have been spent on flights, hotel stays, and an all-inclusive incentive trip can be put towards a premium gift experience. Choosing corporate gifts for virtual events is impactful, thoughtful, and gives guests something to still look forward to even though they’re just attending from their couch. It’s essential to choose the right corporate gifts to promote your virtual event, which is why we’re here to help.

Custom Tech

Custom tech such as Apple AirPods, Skullcandy headphones, or Bose headphones are a way to make sure your virtual event is heard, literally. With individuals working from home with children, loud city background noises, and no IT department present in their home, investing in a custom tech gift ensures your guests will be both excited and prepared to attend their virtual event. Let’s be honest, virtual events are here to stay, so gifting custom tech is a sure way to keep your event top of mind going forward everytime your guests reach for those earbuds in the future.

At ParsonsKellogg, we offer the option of creating your own custom microsite or online pop-up shop, including your branding and curated items. Your guests can select their gift from various options, input sizing information (if needed), and input their shipping address to be shipped directly to their home. This option is great for virtual events because it still gives guests a virtual “experience” that allows choice and a personalized experience.
