With the onset of the corporate event season, many planners are left wrestling with the quandary of what to give prospective attendees as either an incentive or a gift for coming. Over the past few years, Choice Gifts® has seen two trends emerge: sunglasses and mobile accessories. If you typically include gifts as part of your program, now is the time to begin brainstorming and sourcing them to avoid last-minute production or delivery delays while inventories are still plentiful.
The Caribbean, Mexico, South Florida, and Hawaii are popular locations for incentive programs and offer copious amounts of sunshine. What better way to reward your guests than with a pair of designer sunglasses they can enjoy the minute they arrive? While on-site sunglass events are surely not a new concept, many new brands have joined the fray and now have their own on-site offerings. Police eyewear is a fast-growing, worldwide brand known for its signature mirrored blue lens frames worn by celebrities including Antonio Banderas, George Clooney, and Bruce Willis. If Police doesn’t quite fit your mix of event attendees, consider offering more traditional brands such as Ray-Ban and Oakley. With iconic Aviator, Wayfarer, and Flak Jacket styles, they continue to be the most popular brands in the world. Guests love sunglasses, and you can never have too many—there’s a different style and personality for each day of the week.
In today’s electronic age, the mobile accessories industry has become big business, estimated at $38 billion by 2017. Reward your guests with some form of the latest and greatest products. Items such as Mophie Juice Pack battery cases fit a variety of popular phones and carry as much as four full charges in a slim case to keep your guests charged and connected all day. Other items such as Bluetooth speakers and headphones from brands like Beats by Dre and Bose continue to please crowds.
