How Does Step 3 Of The Roadmap Impact Events?

For businesses that have missed the opportunity to interact with customers through events over the last year, step 3 of the government's roadmap will be welcomed news. The third step of the roadmap will be unlocked from 17th May and sets out that indoor events and all remaining outdoor events can recommence. The government website states that this includes:

  • Business events such as conferences, tradeshows, exhibitions, charity auctions, and private dining events (e.g. charity or gala dinners and awards ceremonies), and corporate hospitality
  • Live performances
  • Circuses
  • Air shows
  • Historical/battle reenactments
  • Live animal performances
  • Non-elite and professional sporting events
  • Grassroots and professional sporting events

Of course, there are some limitations and all events will have to adhere to the government's social distancing guidelines. And, we don't know for certain that Step 3 will commence on the set date of May 17th until a government announcement one week before.

With all of this in mind, how can you generate the most brand awareness and ensure your planned event is COVID-secure? Read on to discover our top picks of promotional merchandise that are perfect for any upcoming event.

Hands, Face, Space: Keep Your Event Safe

Whilst planning your event, it's important to consider how you're going to ensure people feel safe and help keep everyone COVID-secure. Enter our range of promotional social distancing items.

For example, our floor stickers reminder people to keep appropriately apart at all times and to follow a one-way system, whilst keeping your brand on display. Available in a range of colour combinations and printed with your message, they clearly communicate your business message. Due to the high bond permanent adhesive, these floor graphics are suitable for most indoor flooring, short pile office carpet and also outdoors, too.

Similarly, our Social Distancing Wall Stickers keep a constant reminder around your venue to your event attendees. Available in four sizes as standard (A1, A2, A3 and A4) these sturdy promotional posters are perfect for any indoor event.

Of course, many people now carry their own hand sanitiser with them - but it's still important to have hand sanitiser available to use at your events. We have a range of sanitising stations available, including Free Standing Sanitising Stations, Wall Mounted Hand Sanitiser Stations, Countertop Hand Sanitising Stations and Contactless Automatic Hand Sanitiser Dispensers.

Promote A Corporate Image With Printed Clothing

Arming your team members with wearable merchandise at events provides the perfect opportunity to set smart tone whilst keeping your logo constantly visible.

Our Fruit of the Loom Polo Shirts are a popular choice with UK businesses and are a great option for event uniform. Available in a wide range of colours, there's a hue to suit every businesses logo. They can be ordered with a range of branding options, whether you want your message printed or embroidered and with options to customise the front, back or chest of the shirt, the choice is yours!

If your business is running or taking part in an outdoor or sporting event, these Brushed Heavy Cotton Caps will also make a great addition to your staff's event uniform. 

As well as being ideal for your uniform, our Fruit of the Loom Valueweight T-Shirts are equally as great for event giveaways to attendees. Boasting a large print area for your business name, logo or message, your attendees will be reminded of your event long after it has ended.

Whether you're looking for a uniform or giveaway, our range of corporate clothing ticks all the boxes!

Keep Your Logo On Display With Event Decorations

If you're hosting an event or simply taking part in one, it's always a good idea to decorate your venue or exhibition stand with eye-catching logo-printed items.

Balloons are always a fun and popular choice for events and our Promotional 10-Inch Balloons are no exception! Available in a rainbow of colour choices and clearly printed with your business name, logo or message, they are sure to add a pop to your event marketing.

In a similar vein, our Triangle Bunting offers multiple print areas in one item! Hung around your venue or trade stand, this custom printed bunting will have all eyes on your branding.

For unmissable brand exposure, look no further than our Roll Up Banners; boasting your design printed to the entire surface of the banner. These printed banners are hard-wearing and high-quality, making them ideal for display at any event - and, with their handy pull-up feature, they're easy to transport to and from events!
