Case Study:

Our tech company client came to us asking for assistance in creating a fun and engaging corporate event that would leave a lasting impression on their employees.  We planned the event at a local park with Pickleball courts set up for attendees to play on. Our client  hired a Pickleball instructor, which really upped their game.   We designed custom-branded Pickleball paddles for everyone to use. 

The employees and their families had a blast playing the game.  The custom paddles were a hit, and attendees took them home to continue playing with friends and family. This event was a big success, and our client received fantastic feedback from employees.  We have to one up ourselves next year, but that's the price of success!  

Incorporating custom promotional products into your event marketing strategy can take your event to the next level. Think creatively and outside the box to create a memorable and engaging experience for your attendees.  We've got lots more ideas and case studies for you.
