A primary challenge with event planning is getting people in the door. Offering a cool promotional prize just for showing up can be a great way to convince people to make an appearance.
If you’re in search of promotional prize ideas to help bring people to your events, read on.
Consider the season
Picking a door prize that ties to the season can get people thinking about ways they’ll be able to use it—and that they need to get to your gathering so they have a chance to win.
More than 9.1 million Canadian households have at least one person who goes camping. That makes camping gear a promotional prize idea that’s sure to appeal to a wide variety of event goers.
Treat them to tech
Technology has changed the way we interact with the world. More than 80% of Canadians under age 65 access the internet at least a few times a week—and nearly 100% of those under 45 connect to it daily.
That may explain why 2 out of 3 of the most influential promotional giveaways are tech-based (PDF).
Celebrate good times
Holiday parties, company anniversaries and other milestones are reasons to celebrate. A promotional prize can encourage people to celebrate with you.
Create a basket with a favourite bottle of wine or a subscription to a wine of the month and some wine accoutrements. A Laguiole® Wine Companion, Duet Wine Bag and a Stemless White Wine Glass Set would make the perfect raffle prize. Or place a bottle of wine at each table and choose a lucky attendee from each table to win it.
Tie the item to the event
If your event has a theme, a door prize that ties into that theme can do double duty—draw people in and remind them of your event long after it is over.
For example, an OGIO® Straight Jacket Golf Bag and some Titleist® Pro V1 Golf Balls would be a definite hole-in-one at your golf event. And they’ll feel like they won big when they get a Deluxe Poker Set or Centerpiece Chocolates Thank You & Dollar Sign on casino night.
A big win for everyone
Cool promotional prizes are the icing on the cake at any fun event. Use these ideas to pull people in—and make your event a little extra memorable.
