So you’ve promoted your event and hoards of people are going to start arriving at your venue. What are they going to see when they get there?
Decorating your venue can have a very significant impact on the success of your event. You want to create an environment where people know that they will be comfortable and have a great time. And hopefully, this welcoming environment will encourage them to open their wallets for a good cause. Your venue may have rules and restrictions on decorations, so be sure to check with them before you start making plans.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
• Add some color to your ticket sales table/booth with a Chinese design table cloth or table runner (for a counter top).
• Think about how you’re going to display your merchandise – where possible, items should be displayed at eye level and clearly marked with prices, sizes etc.
• Signs can be very effective to inform your guests, so print up some attractive signs to give information on the charity, ticket prices, raffles, auctions, kinds of payments accepted, sponsors, and anything else that you think people may need to know.
• Decorate your crew! Your crew should be easy to identify, so how about matching shirts, name tags, Crew ID cards on lanyards, or even Kaylee-styled parasols?
