Events require extensive preparation. From planning and budgeting, to finding suppliers and producing marketing material, the end goal of an event should be for guests to remember it fondly. Souvenirs are a powerful tool for increasing recall; make sure they reflect your brand image or theme! Items like custom designed mugs, bookmarks or keychains all work great as souvenirs.

Assuming your event is at a luxury hotel, souvenirs that emphasize local culture or the natural environment would make an excellent addition. They allow attendees to connect more closely with your brand while adding exclusivity. Furthermore, it’s essential that the colors match up with the overall theme – bold colours can grab attention quickly but must also complement one another to avoid appearing too busy and diluting your message.
