Events are full of branding opportunities. Here we show you 9 creative ways to display company logos and brand your events.
Today’s event planner is expected to ‘think outside the box’ and create unique experiences rather than run-of-the-mill corporate events. One of the main criteria that event planners must decide upon is where and how to display company logos at events. As expectations grow - and audiences and clients demand more ‘wow factor’ experiences - so every element of an event must be well thought out and individually tailored to an event.
Just relying on banners and flyers to be a sufficient way of displaying a logo is out of the question if you want your event to really stand out. Branded goody bags and logoed photo walls are no longer ‘new’ ideas. With the use of interactive technology, new ideas, entertainment and plenty of creativity, event planners can ensure that company logos are displayed in a variety of ways; some clever or modern and others simply mind-blowing!
Here, we look at a range of ways to display company logos at your next event:
Interactive Options for Company Logos
The use of technology and interactive art has been used at a range of corporate events to engage attendees, whilst at the same time cleverly displaying a corporate or event logo. These interactive options are a great way to get guests talking during the mix and mingle or drinks reception.
The use of photbooths at events is growing in popularity as they offer a great way of displaying corporate logos and leaving attendees with a keepsake of the event. This option can be used at events as a way of giving attendees an interactive element during arrivals or as part of the drinks receptions.
The new generation of photobooths will not only display branding and logos on the outside of the photobooth, but can also ensure that logos are included on photos that can then be instantly uploaded to social media!
Digital Graffiti Wall
Special software and an infra red spray can allow attendees to draw onto a giant screen, offering an interactive experience that has the added bonus of being able to display logos.
Digital graffiti walls can also be used in conjunction with a photobooth, so that you can add some artwork to your portrait. As with the photobooth, instant upload is available so that guest’s finished artwork can be instantly displayed on Facebook. A great way to get that company logo displayed to a wider audience!
3D Street Art
A stunning visual spectacle that unfolds before your guests very eyes! A 3D street artist can create a pavement masterpiece at your event and incorporate a company logo within the bespoke drawing.
