Little-known holidays can be a creative way to add excitement to your event!

Looking for a way to add excitement or flair to your upcoming event?  Want to change up your job fair or tradeshow presentation?  Unconventional holidays can help spice up your promotions and inspire creativity in your event!

If you are stuck trying to develop a theme or idea for an event, or really want to change things up and try something fun and different, simply take a look at a calendar.  When the major holidays are lacking, eccentric and obscure holidays offer an additional reason to celebrate.  Tying your event to a fun and little-known holiday can help spark creativity and allow for a playful, exciting event! 

Who knew that today is National Frozen Food Day?  It’s also Dentist Day!  There are also month-long celebrations.  This month is National Peanut Month.  Looking for a fun way to tell your customers or employees that you are “nuts” about them?  Present them with a token of your appreciation, such as a wooden collector’s box filled with Choice Virginia Peanuts!

Nuts add a healthy snack option for National Nutrition Month!

March is also National Nutrition Month!  A fun way to help your employees stick to their New Year’s Resolution to stay healthy is to utilize the “team” approach.  Share healthy recipes with co-workers, organize various exercise opportunities, or opt for healthier treats such as fruit and nuts.

This same approach can make any job fair, convention, or tradeshow more memorable.  Maple Ridge Farms is very familiar with the idea, “If you feed them, they will come”!  Offering a treat in your booth will help draw people in and allow you to stand apart long after they are gone.  Choosing a theme that coincides with your date can add the element of enthusiasm.  For instance, June is National Candy Month.  Handing out delicious chocolate covered almonds, complete with your logo and information will have them remembering your “sweet opportunities” or “sweet deals” long after the event is over.

Creativity for your events and promotions is only a day a way…
