The heart of California is filled with movie stars, dinner parties, award shows, and other mega annual (or even semi-annual) events. From a business standpoint, event management for these serve a purpose. They allow ‘big names’ to network, partner with other businesses and even spread brand awareness.
Most of the events that you hear or read about are held by huge, reputable companies. If you want to be the next ‘big name’ out there in the industry, why haven’t you hosted your own product launch party, grand opening or even charity dinner event?
We at BLND understand the importance of hosting such events and thought we’d share a bit of insight as to why hosting events are important to you and the growth of your business:
Hosting an event is a great way for your business to get immediate exposure from the community in which you serve and even potential media and press outlets. The more exposure your company has, the more opportunities you have created for your business to silently “sell” its product or service. The audience is going to want to know who is hosting the event and why or how they got involved. It’s the oldest ‘sales’ trick in the book.
Business Expansion through Partnerships–
When your company chooses to host an event, know that it is okay to partner with other like-businesses. Allowing other businesses to participate at your event could lead to countless business opportunities in the near future. They could be potential partners for a new product or they too could ask you to be a part of a future event they are hosting, which allows you to gain additional exposure, increasing your brand awareness across a plethora of customers.
Creating a relationship with your Target Audience–
Those who are interested in your product or service are the ones who will attend your event. The attendees (stranger or not) have invested in you, your brand, your company, and your product or service by simply showing up. So don’t be afraid to interact, shake a few hands, thank everyone for coming and simply demonstrate your interest in your audience. These simply actions create brand loyalty. Even if you hire representatives to work the event, know that humans love and crave face-to-face interaction, we all want to know that someone cares.
Now that you understand the importance of hosting events, we’re here to help you plan your event. Just ask us how to get started.
