There’s a lot on your mind if you’re planning a large event, a trade show, or a convention. You have to think about finding vendors and getting them signed up for the event. You have to think about security, parking, and food vendors. And of course, you have to think about how you’re going to market your event!
Flags are a great way to advertise. Just a few of the custom flags you might want to consider customizing for your event include:
- Custom tents that can be used indoors and outdoors.
- Advertising flags that can include display banners, street flags, and even string bunting.
- Table flags and covers that can be used on booth tables and at award and thank-you dinners.
The trouble is, choosing between flags just means you have even more choices to make! If you want to keep things simple, and you want to choose the flag with the most bang for your buck, you can’t go wrong with polyester mesh banners.
They make parking a
Many business flags exist only as an advertising strategy. That’s definitely the case with traditional rectangular flags that are made to hang on a pole, but it’s also the case with street flags, display banners, and many other flag styles. Mesh banners are different because although they are a great way to advertise, they can also make parking easier.
Large conventions and trade shows can attract hundreds, if not thousands, of visitors. Having a parking plan is a must, and that includes figuring out exactly how you’re going to direct traffic.
Parking barriers are often used, but they can be made much more visible with mesh banners. You can cover the banners in advertisements, or even use arrows to direct traffic in one direction and not another.
They are a great way for sponsors to advertise
Large events can be expensive. Even if you’re solely responsible for planning the event, chances are, you aren’t the only one responsible for paying for the event. Members of your team have likely spent months collecting sponsors whose contributions have made the entire thing possible.
Many of them do it out of the goodness of their hearts, but that doesn’t mean they don’t expect something in return. Usually, they want to get a little advertising out of it, which might mean including their names on a program or thanking them during a speech or an announcement, but you can also allow them to hang polyester mesh banners at the event.
These banners can be used on the parking barriers mentioned above, but they are especially effective when it comes to sporting events, concerts, and other forms of entertainment that draw big crowds.
Invite them to bring their own banner to use, or consider including a banner with their donation. If they know they’ll get a custom banner out of it, they may be more likely to donate!
They can be used indoors and outdoors
Most of the time, mesh banners are used outdoors. It’s easy to see why that’s the most popular use for these advertising flags. Because of their material and construction, they can withstand the wind, rain, and sun better than other types of flags.
However, these banners can also be used indoors just as effectively. For example, banners can be hung in a skating rink before an ice hockey game, or they can be hung from the rafters at a basketball game.
It’s not just sporting events that can benefit from polyester mesh banners. Trade shows can hang banners on the walls, they can be hung on tables, and they can even be used at specialty events, like antique shows, that take place in large convention centers and skating rinks.
If you’re having a hard time with everything planning a convention or a large event entails, make things a little simpler by narrowing down your event advertising options and choose mesh banners over other flag options. They can make things a little easier when it comes to parking, their oversized size means they’re a great way to advertise, and with the high-quality materials and sturdy construction from The Flag Makers, you can use your banners over and over again!
