Companies that recognize the hard work and dedication of their employees enjoy higher staff engagement, positive morale, a more dedicated customer service mentality, and lower turnover rates. Praise and recognition are great psychological tools to implement in the workplace. Employees who know that they will receive recognition for acting on the brand promise will have a strong incentive to do so. (Gallup, 2013 State of the American Workplace) It’s projected that one minute spent on recognizing positive actions will yield one hundred minutes of initiative in return.
In any business, it’s important to convey appreciation to valued clients and staff in a way that shows your sincere gratitude for their business and hard work. Similarly, thoughtful and high-value conference giveaways show prospective customers a little bit of personality as well as your good taste.
Generally speaking, people don’t love to wait in lines. Whether at the grocery store, at a trade show, at a healthcare clinic, people want to get where they’re going and get things done. That said, it can be challenging to determine the best conference giveaways or product handouts for professionals in the healthcare field who already have limited time to spare.
When your business was first founded, chances are you or the owners put a lot of thought and effort into things like the company name and business plan. You thought about the company’s mission and the primary value propositions. You considered the demographics, growth opportunities, and marketing strategy. And, somewhere along the way, you designed a logo.
Conferences and trade shows can be excellent places to learn, make connections, and promote your brand as a thought leader among your peers and clients. People love to gather and learn about the latest products, hear keynote speakers remark on the latest industry insights, and connect with like-minded individuals in the same space.
However, there is a big difference between being a conference attendee and a sponsor or presenter. If you have never sponsored or presented at a conference before, you may be wondering how to get your company’s name out there in a way that will resonate with your audience.
As a marketing or events manager, you know that planning a successful corporate event takes work. It’s important to consider your goals, your target audience, and your location when planning a corporate conference or trade show.
