Door gifts are small tokens, trinkets or novelties that an event organizer leaves at the door, which are presented to attendees when they first enter the relevant premises, hence, often constituting an actual “door” gift.
These are a common sight at numerous events and especially more professional corporate events where such door gifts are nearly always present. An event organizer would certainly do well to include a door gift for the participants of their event. A door gift can significantly enhance the memorability that an event has for each participant.
This is the case for several reasons. First, door gifts present a good first impression. The impression that an attendee gets at the start of the event can colour the rest of his experience. Similarly, a thoughtful door gift is indicative of the appreciation that an event organiser shows towards those who turn up.
It militates towards attendees thinking that the event is meticulous and well-planned. This enhances the impact of the event by affecting the experience that each individual attendee has.
Second, the lack of a door gift can actually create a negative impression. Given the prevalence of the presentation of door gifts, the lack of a door gift can be viewed as out of the ordinary and therefore interpreted to be a display of a lack of careful planning.
The reality is that corporate gifts have become such an ingrained and conventional part of event planning that attendees are often used to it, and may treat the absence of door gifts as a sticking point.
Third, door gifts allow each attendee to take away at least one thing from the event. Door gifts are tangible memoirs of the event and will instantly trigger the attendee’s memory of it each time he uses or recalls the door gift.
In this sense, the door gift is an easy way to multiply the reach and impact of the event, as he is likely to continue using that item (and continue thinking of the event) for many days to come – this is, of course, premised on the fact that your door gift is adequately and meticulously chosen.
