Planning a sporting event?

Maybe it’s a charity, fundraiser, building awareness or straight up competition.

Either way you want to create an awesome branded experience for people attending, support your sponsors AND stay on budget.

Sound about right?

On top of that you have a ton of details and people to manage. We get it. Below are the top things to consider when researching displays for your upcoming sporting event!

it comes down to a few key areas:

Attendee/Guest Experience:

This is what will give the credibility to the event and to you. We always want people to be sharing on social media to create more awareness of your event and/or cause. We have to be thinking about how we’re creating branded experiences that encourage social sharing. All the branding and signage should have this in mind. Your displays share your message. That message attracts and aligns with your audience.

 

Directional and Informational:

Guiding event goers where to go, where are restrooms, registration, perhaps event locations, food, vendors, etc. Thinking about the signage and print there are many products to help make it organized and run smoothly like Tents, Flags, Printed Table Cloths, Directional, Banners, Podium Backdrops,  Outdoor Banner Stands and many more but we know you have to stay on budget…

 

Branding and Sponsorship ROI:

The brands and sponsors want to see their dollars going to good use and you want to use that for event ROI. We have a lot of different ways to do that. Consider the different levels of sponsorship allowing them to be on different signs. For example the backdrop behind the podium is premium level sponsor. Have you thought about a multi-year commitment for them to have that coverage? We’ve seen that little tip pay off huge. Also on your directional signs allow sponsors to pay for those with their logo on it for more exposure. Keep in mind how you’re encouraging attendees to social share with the sponsors logos in the background will make the sponsors happy. This is where event and sponsor hashtags can go a long way.

 

Meeting Your Timeline:

Since there can be a lot of printing we recommend starting the conversation early and having everything mapped out. That way as last minute sponsors send you creative, and they do, you’re not rushing and adding stress.

Choosing the Right Print Supplier:

We know there are a lot of suppliers to choose from. Here are the top few things to consider:

What do they guarantee for colour and final result?

Believe it or not some print companies don’t guarantee anything! They say it may not match your monitor in the fine print and you don’t know until it’s too late. We say that’s BS which is why we have a love it guarantee. We do everything to make sure it’s arrives right.

What is their warranty?

This likely isn’t the last time you’re doing this event. If you buy something and it gets damaged by someone setting up, taking down or storing you don’t want to have to buy new next year. Many companies have really short warranties on products. We offer lifetime on many of ours so if you, someone from your team or even a courier damages it…you’re taken care of!

Ability to deliver and support your goals?

Our goal is you crushing yours! That’s why we want to talk about your event with you and understand what you need to succeed. We also can share what other events are doing, products that may help or ways of getting sponsors to pitch in. We’re not really just a printing company. We’re a printer for experiential events so we understand what you’re doing and will do everything to help you succeed. We also understand a lot comes down to last minute-our mindset is whatever it takes.
