product, or service interactive and fun. Doing so will make your company
more memorable than any amount of literature you could hand out.
Market Your Event
Don’t spend all this time and effort planning your event and then
forget to spread the word! Create a guest list and send personalized invitations
to the customers you want there the most. If it’s not invitation
only, special VIP invites aren’t a bad idea in addition to your
