Business events have the added pressure of having to be perfect because not only is your own reputation on the line, but your company’s as well. But while hosting such a corporate event can be daunting, you have to make sure that you don’t forget sending out the formal invitations to make sure that your contacts know the details of your event.
There are many ways to send out corporate invitations. Open house events that invite the public can easily be posted on the company’s official website or social media pages, while programs and fundraising galas may need physical invitation cards. The rise of social media has made communication that much easier. On social media or email, you can get real-time updates from your guests, so you will know as early as possible how many people to expect at a closed-invitation event. Consequently, your guests too, will know what or who to expect, and even receive event updates as you post them.
Physical invitations that people can find in their post box are known to add a certain elegance to an event, thereby making it look more professional on your end. Not only that, studies have shown that people still retain information from physical invitations better than digital ones, which they tend to miss out on, or forget as soon as they move on to the next post on their social media timeline.
Whichever type you plan on using, remember that there are two main reasons hosts still take time to create invitations: first is that they provide all the essential information for the event, such as the type of event, date and time, venue, RSVP deadline, and expected attire from guests. Second, it also sets the scene and will put images in your guests’ head to let them know what to expect, such as whether or not they should be getting ready to sweat out in a volunteer effort, be in a business attire of a product launch or get dolled up for a cocktail and dinner party.
No matter which way you choose, your business event should have an eye-catching premium design that will grab the attention of your colleagues and business contacts. Whether you are looking to use a customizable, ready made template, or if you already came up with a striking slogan, or investing in a commanding graphic art, remember to to provide a creative invitation that will command attention as well as set the scene and tone of your event.
Your invitation will serve as a form of marketing collateral for your event and could help your business sell more. Make sure that you are noticed by your audience for the right reasons.
