So when money’s on your mind, how can you ensure that your event is budget smart? And yet still, how can you create an unforgettable experience?
Table Centrepieces Are The Missing Ingredient Your Event Needs
Let’s put our cards on the table. We believe table centrepieces are the most effective way to make your event stand out as an unforgettable experience, whilst managing your cost and efficiency closely. They are the missing ingredient that drastically increases the visual and emotional impact of your event. What’s more is they can be achieved at a fraction of the overall budget.
You’d be forgiven if you thought we were biased in our assessment. We are. But it’s this belief we’ve seen repeatedly outplayed up close, and subsequently have built, capitalised on and grown a successful global business providing Table Art for events that give us that confidence to state it.
What Is It That Makes Table Centrepieces So Cost-Effective?
It’s simple. It boils down to science.
Table centrepieces are strategically placed in the middle of the table in front of guests. In the field of vision for guests 80% of the time, it’s impossible not to make an impression. Your guests comment on how stunning they look, take sharp intakes of breath, and as the MC steps up onto the stage, the table art dims and they comment on how beautiful the room looks.
There’s nothing else that has this impact for such a comparatively low cost.
Table Art Is Smart For Your Marketing Budget
87% of event planners say they are definitely looking to use social media for their events. A further 11% saying they may do so. Only 2% said they would not be using social media. Additionally, this year, 65% of event planners say they are planning to increase their use of free social media. 62% will increase word of mouth marketing. 52% will increase Influencer relations. 50% will increase email, 45% will increase paid social media, and 43% will increase content marketing. Table Centrepieces affects all of these, as an increase in sharing photos from events is felt across the industry.
For instance, when someone sees a feast for the eyes, out come the phones for the selfies and group shots. These photos and updates get posted on Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. They can then be utilised in content campaigns later on. We base a lot of the thinking of our designs around what will get people sharing and our Table Art and signature pieces achieve that at each event.
