The events industry has had to think on its feet lately, as the seismic impact of the global Covid-19 crisis has completely changed the way that business is done - and nowhere is this more acute than when it comes to business events.

Activity has pivoted to be all online events, but how do you secure the same levels of engagement from corporate sponsors when they can't get face to face with delegates? And how do you get attendees to really connect with a message when they are sitting at their computers?

Creating a Tactile Connection from a Digital Platform

You can create some real impact by bringing a little offline magic to your virtual event with a virtual conference event pack.

These beautifully presented boxes can be made to any size, shape and specifications. They are a brilliant way of bringing together exciting gifts with a strong promotional message.

We can arrange to deliver the boxes to your delegates a few days before (or after!) your planned event to really create a sense of anticipation and get people fully engaged prior to starting your online sessions.

Boxes can contain all manner of useful branded promotional gifts, from phone chargers to coffee cups and pens, and you can include literature from your event sponsors too. It all brings your message home and can follow a particular theme of the event you’re running.

We can help you find the right products for your campaign and match them with the appropriate fitment for safe transportation, so each box is fully customised for your event.

Getting the Best from your Online Events - Make it Personal

To really get the full impact of your virtual event pack, think about the type of event you’re running, and theme your packs around that.

For example, if the theme is creativity, inspire your attendees to get brainstorming with a smart notepad and pen. Or you could go for a coffee break theme with a mug or a reusable coffee cup. We loved these branded metal bottles, a high quality, useful and memorable example of a promotional item to include in your virtual event pack.

The beauty of virtual event packs is that they can be tailored to your event and specifications, and those of your sponsors. It’s a great way to showcase your products or highlight what they do in a way that event attendees can hold in their hands, creating an instant physical connection and a long-lasting impact. The packs build up buzz around an event and act as a reminder afterwards of the messages you and your sponsors want to share.

Inform and Educate

Whatever your topic, your event has something important to communicate. Spend some time thinking about the message you want to put across and how your event pack can help you to get this across to delegates. For example, if your message is ‘Invest in this Region’ - then adding a postcard from the region could be a lovely touch.

If you want to showcase a new product or service you have to offer, theme the box around aspects of that. Our team of specialist creatives are on hand to produce custom fitments that perfectly hold and display your products for the maximum impact when they are opened by recipients.

Sending a conference pack before or after your event

A personalised virtual conference box delivered to their door is unlikely to be forgotten and can help you make a lasting impact in a way that is totally unique to your event.

Or perhaps you’d prefer to send afterwards - following your event, this is a prime time to supply branded merchandise and even a thank you for participating in your event – all complete with a branded delegate box.

Our team can do the fulfilment and distribution service on your behalf – meaning we can arrange to send to each delegate when is best for you.

It may still be light at 8pm, but before we know it, we’ll all be snuggled up in front of the fire and counting down the days until Christmas. As an employer, it’s always a good idea to be prepared when it comes to ticking off the festive gift list and treating your employees. Buying brilliant branded Christmas presents is a fantastic way to thank your team, reward hard work and dedication and give everyone a boost in the run-up to Christmas.

Particularly during this unprecedented year, why not make sure your employees are looking forward to celebrating with unique, useful, fun seasonal gifts? If you’re looking to indulge in some retail therapy and get started early, this guide has got some fabulous ideas for Christmas presents to give to employees.

Branded Christmas Crackers

What could be better than turning up to your desk or sitting down to dinner to find branded crackers? Our Printed Christmas Crackers are a festive staple, and they’re an excellent addition to any party. Whether you’re planning to get together this Christmas, or you’ll be hosting virtual drinks or a Zoom gathering, you can provide your employees with bright, eye-catching, customised crackers. Share jokes, swap gifts and don your party hat to finish off your festive outfit perfectly.

Branded Candy Canes

Nothing says Christmas like a candy cane. Candy Canes are ideal stocking fillers and they can act as gifts for employees and clients, as well as promotional items. Each candy cane comes with a card, which can be customised to promote your brand or send festive well-wishes to the recipient. Choose from a range of colours and flavours to suit your preferences and complement your branding.

Brownie Postal Boxes

Christmas is traditionally a time of indulgence. Most of us look forward to eating chocolate for breakfast and grazing on sugary delights while watching classic films or playing intensely competitive board games with relatives we haven’t seen in months.

Our luxury brownies are an ideal corporate Christmas gift for clients and employees, perfect for teams and groups that work together. As well as being great Christmas presents for employees, our branded postal brownies are also an excellent option for customers and clients.

Bottle Openers

If there is one thing that is guaranteed to happen on Christmas Day, it’s wasting half an hour trawling through drawers and desperately searching utensils pots to find the bottle opener. If this scenario sounds familiar, why not treat your employees to a branded bottle opener? This is a functional, useful gift that will be used by every recipient, and the best bit is you can carry it around with you as a keyring.

The festive party season can go off with a bang when you’ve got a bottle opener at your disposal in the office, at a friend’s house or at home on the big day itself. There’s a choice of colours and materials, and you can add your brand name, logo and bespoke artwork.

Branded Gift Candles

During the dark winter nights, you can bring a glimmer of light to your team, with our UK made luxury branded candles, available in a range of scents, each candle is branded with your own sticker and supplied in a fully printed presentation gift box.

Our candles are made from soy wax and use a cotton wick for a longer burn. The candles are 100% vegan friendly as well.

Power Banks

If you’re searching for something to really show your staff or clients you care, you cannot go wrong with a branded power bank. Most of us are reliant on technology these days, and we can’t survive without our phones and tablets. With branded power banks, you can charge on the go and allay fears of looking at the screen to find the battery in the dreaded red zone.

This is a gift your employees will use regularly and they’ll definitely thank you for it when unwrapping the shiny paper at the staff Christmas party. You can choose from different colours and your brand name or logo will light up when the device is in action. You can also charge 2 devices at once, which is really handy for tech lovers.

Christmas Hats

Christmas is the season for donning hats and embracing the festive spirit. With many of us set to enjoy festive parties, whether in-person or over a video call, branded Christmas hats are an ideal gift. With a customised hat, you can set a dress code for pre-Christmas meetings, lift the spirits and encourage everyone to get involved in festive celebrations, while also promoting your brand and introducing it to anyone you or your employees happen to see.

Branded Wine Boxes

A wine box is a sophisticated, luxurious gift, which your employees will love. Functional with a touch of opulence, these wooden wine boxes contain a range of accessories, including a corkscrew and a stopper. You can add your branding to the top of the box, and if you’re feeling really generous and your team has worked tirelessly or smashed records, you can then add their favourite bottle once your box has arrived, or let us look after fulfilment and delivery of your seasonal gifts.

The Perfect Present for Every Team Member

It may still be sunny, but the weeks between the start of autumn and Christmas always seem to whizz by in a flash. Christmas will be here before we know it, and it’s a fantastic idea to start thinking about what gifts you want to buy for your brilliant team now. Whether you’re looking for edible treats for those with a sweet tooth, luxurious presents or useful items for gadget lovers, Really Good Branding has got you covered.
