Event Signage For Any Occasion
Over the years, we have had the privilege of helping to bring some incredible events to life. From timeless weddings that have managed to make a mark in our hearts and stay with us forever to trade shows, corporate soirées and charity balls. We have seen it all - and it’s safe to say, events are never quite complete without personalised event signage as these unique pieces are used to inspire the look and feel of any moment in time.
Not only are they one of the first things your guests will be moved by upon arrival but they are used to showcase the key messaging around the event to all in attendance. In the grand scheme of event planning, event signage might seem like a small detail, but it actually plays a significant role in event decor. From welcoming guests to signaling them where to sit and introducing keynote speakers, Kai’s Signs event signage can be used for almost everything.
If you’re unsure which signs you need to include and which ones you can skip, you’re in luck. In this article we’re narrowing down which event signs are must-haves - so get your pen and paper ready!
Welcome signs do exactly what they suggest– they welcome your valued loved ones and guests! They help by warmly advising they have made it to the correct venue. If you have a planner, it will save them the trouble of having to reassure everyone that walks through the door that they are where they’re supposed to be. Typically, event signs include the event name, the date, and sometimes the venue.
Event Signage & Merchandise
Signage is one of the most effective ways to style your event space. Think corflutes, free-standing flags, stubby coolers or flyers. These statement pieces go a long way with communicating the overarching theme or purpose and even better if there is branded merchandise your guests can take home with them to remember the day. Our signs are made from PVC which means, no ribbing! If you have a marquee, ask about our ACM signs, we promise it will make the entire event! Whatever you’re hoping to achieve, the team at Kai’s Signs are eager and ready to help you with the challenge and bring your vision to life.
If you’re holding your event in a large space, you might want to consider signs that offer your guests directions around the venue. This is particularly relevant if your event is held in two different locations and if you have invited elderly guests. By making everything transparent with the help of signage, you’ll ensure your day is smooth sailing for all.
Food & Beverage Signs
Now this one is extremely important, for obvious reasons! Let’s be honest, everyone will want to know where the bar is for refreshments and nibbles so this one should be strongly considered. Not only will you want to advise your guests of where the bar is situated, but also, what drinks and food are on offer (ex. wine, beer, sliders, skewers etc.). If you know you are going to be serving signature cocktails, signs are the best way to introduce the name of the cocktail as well as the ingredients.
Seating charts are another vital addition to your event signage decor. You’ll want to let your guests quickly locate which table they are at, and who they will be sitting with as effortlessly as possible. Particularly if it is an awards ceremony and there are time constraints - a seating chart will naturally minimise any confusion and allow sufficient time for event deliverables.
Promotional Gift Bags
Lastly, you will want a sign for any gifts or branded tokens you may be providing to your on the day. If you have gone to the effort (and expense) of arranging, say promotional bags for your guests, you certainly don’t want your guests to leave without vital information or branding items. Placing a small sign next to your event freebies to help draw attention to your guest gifts.
