Summer is the perfect time to hit the beach, go to a campout or have a barbeque. In fact, 7 out of 10 Canadians participate in outdoor activities.

That makes summer the ideal season to host an event, whether it’s a company picnic, summer festival or community gathering.

As you plan your summer event, we’ve got some fun promotional products that will help make the event memorable for a long time to come.


Pair a theme or location with unique decor

With a little imagination, you can combine your theme, industry and fun promotional products to create one-of-a-kind event memories.

A fun, unique location, like an airport hangar or parking garage, can inspire event decoration ideas that double as party favours. Decorate tents on the tarmac with these Paper Jet Aircrafts and send them home with eventgoers at the end of the day. Provide ambient lighting with imprinted Votive Glasses that can also be used as shot glasses.

Holding a nighttime event for employees only? Decorate tables with event swag. The Frosted Light-Up Margarita Glasses create a fun lighting affect, and partiers can take them home at the end of the night.


Give door prizes

Set the tone for fun when you have guests enter to win prizes as they arrive at your event. Summer giveaways, like the Hammock with Cooler or an Echo Tritan Audio Bottle with built-in Bluetooth® speaker, make a great door prize.


Keep them cool

It’s easy for the “fun” in “fun in the sun” to fizzle when guests become hot and uncomfortable. Tents and large fans provide a place to get out of the sun and cool down. Imprint this Pre-Programmed Message Fan with the event’s date, a company slogan or another meaningful saying and watch it appear every time they turn it on to cool down. The Twist and Chill Fan is another fun event swag option to help attendees keep their cool.

Make sure there are plenty of water stations. Providing guests with a Mood Stadium Cup or a Recreation Sport Bottle reduces disposable cup waste and serves as a fun memento of the day.

Bonus: Drinkware is one of the most influential promo items in Canada, which means they’re more likely to remember your event and your brand.

Everyone loves a good game, whether it’s for the competition or the camaraderie. Classic outdoor games, like the Wooden Ring Toss Game, Oversize Wooden Yard Dice Game or even a Fun Flyer, can get people playing, laughing and having fun.


Create photo opportunities

It’s estimated that people took 1.2 trillion pictures worldwide in 2017 alone. What’s more, 60 percent of smartphone users are on their mobile devices at events.

Give your eventgoers something to text, tweet and post! Set up a photo booth with a fun hashtag and props, like a Foam Photo Booth Kit and a Thought Bubble Selfie Kit, to up the photo-taking fun.

Set up a FrameWorx Banner Stand that serves as a backdrop. Or if you have an especially scenic event location, hand out a Selfie Stick with Pouch to attendees and encourage them to snap and share the scenery.

As you plan your outdoor event, remember that fun promotional products make memorable decorations, door prizes, photo opportunities and more.
