With Step 3 of the government's roadmap set to unlock from 17th May - which is just a couple of weeks away - there's no better time to consider your promotional merchandise needs for your business' upcoming event.
Whether you're planning on launching a postponed event or organising a new one post-lockdown, events are a fantastic opportunity for your business to interact with those who mean most to your brand. That's why Total Merchandise is here to help with all of your promotional needs; from social distancing signage and hand sanitiser stations to make your event as COVID-secure as possible to logo-printed giveaways for attendees, we've got you sorted!
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
- 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.
