14 Good Reasons to Invest in Events This Year
Companies that invest in events during a financial downturn emerge stronger once the shoots of recovery start to break through. Here are a few of the reasons why...
Success breeds success. A fun event distances you from all the doom and gloom
The invitation alone puts your company in the minds of clients and prospects
Don’t pester buyers with calls and emails – nothing beats meeting face to face
Invitations show clients that you really value their business when it matters most
Companies that don’t feel looked after by competitors may turn to you instead
With fewer invitations going around, yours is more likely to attract interest
Investing in corporate entertainment is a demonstration of company solidity
People open up at parties – you may hear a whisper that helps your business
No need to overspend to see results – keep invitations targeted and costs low
Many suppliers are willing to cut deals at the moment – see what you can save
Meetings inspire progressive thinking, perhaps leading to new revenue streams
It’s essential to keep staff morale high, especially after redundancies
Reassuring staff through open communication is vital in a downturn
We’ve said it before: you reap what you sow. Investing now will bring future returns
