5 Simple Steps To Hosting A Promotional Event On A Yacht

Promoting your brand, product or service on your private yacht charter is an excellent alternative to typical banquet halls and restaurants. Not only will the exclusive experience create a great atmosphere for all attendees; it will also be a great reflection on you and your company. There are definitely a few things that you should do to ensure that the event actually reaches its goal. Here are a few steps on hosting a professional and successful promotional event on a yacht. Organisation, planning, and details Before you can even think about leaving the dock, it’s very important that you make sure everything is in place. You should plan all the details way ahead to ensure everything runs smoothly. You don’t want to run around onboard solving problems that could’ve been avoided. Double-check that all attendees know exactly what time the boat will be leaving. You don’t want some guests missing the ride. Alternatively, you can arrange for the boat to be docked most of the time and only go for a cruise on the water between specific times. This includes having a set program for the evening, giving guests a clear indication of what’s happening and when. If all your guests know the where, what, and how it will eliminate any confusion and will set a great tone for the event already. Being organised is important in making impressions on potential clients as well. Delegation Just like when you’re planning for a yacht birthday party, it’s important to assign the right tasks from the very beginning for your promotional event to ensure it runs smoothly. Get your team onboard. Instead of trying to do everything yourself or outsourcing event management – incorporate internal sources. Give employees allocated tasks and assignments to ensure the event goes off well and that they engage with attendees. Giving certain planning and coordination tasks to employees will ensure that your business is being well marketed. Branding It will be a great idea to outsource the printing of adverts, signage, and digital marketing. This will make your product or service look professional and credible. At the same time, it also means that the entire yacht should be a reflection of your brand. For example, if you are into green living, then you should try to serve compostable packaging and metal straws. Make sure that food and décor fit in with your brands’ identity. Lucky draws and competitions Guests need to be able to try and test your product or service. Have loads of giveaways, discounts, lucky draws and competitions for guests. Not only giving them a taste of what you can offer, but also providing them opportunities to use your product in the future. Promote This is what the event is for, right? So, it’s important to have everything put in place in order to answer all questions and provide everyone with much-needed info on your business. Make sure you have social media set up and encourage guests to tag you in photos and follow your pages. Have information brochures available and internal sources that can answer any questions. Collect contact numbers for future communication and marketing. As long as you plan ahead and consider the finer detail, your promotional event will be a success even aboard a yacht!

3 Pre-Boat Wedding Activities Before The Big Day Arrives

Planning to get a private yacht charter for your wedding? Then there is a world of opportunities that awaits! Moving away from traditional wedding ceremonies, following the unconventional path of tying the knot on the ocean has a lot of perks; not only will you have gorgeous landscape views as a backdrop to your photos, but you’ll also be able to cruise around the coast on the water. After all, going for luxury yacht charters on your big day is in itself an exclusive experience – it’s brimming with romance, uniqueness, and ambience! Without a doubt, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime moment that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. However, as different as a location it is compared to your usual on-land weddings – you can still incorporate similar activities before the big day arrives. Read on for the fun-packed activities to lead up to the wedding ceremony! Romantic and personal: A first look Before anything else, always remember that a wedding is between you and your spouse; any activities for your guests can always come later for sure. So, if you don’t mind not following customs and traditions, you can arrange a private meeting between the two of you; otherwise also known as a first look. It’s a moment on the big day when the bride and groom meet to see each other for the first time. And if you would like to capture this sweet moment between the two of you, request your photographer to snap a couple of photos so you can cherish this precious day. Once you’ve had some alone time with each other, it’s then time for you to start thinking up of some fun ways to entertain your guests. Reminisce cherished memories: Photo session Sure, photos on the boat will look magical, but capturing the moments before embarking is just as special. Have your photographer take special photos of the soon-to-be couple and the bridal party; either standing on the wooden pier or walkway and even just as they are about to climb onto the boat. Before the wedding ceremony starts, the photographer can take a big group photo of all the guests. Spice it up with entertainment: Game time For certain, there are numerous games for guests to play before a wedding ceremony begins – or even after it’s over! But remember, your choice of games shouldn’t involve too much or any contact at all with the current COVID-19 crisis – hence, keep in mind to choose wisely. For instance, DJ Name That Tune is excellent as everyone remains in their seats, use their ears to listen to the short portion of the song, and guess the song once it’s finished! Throw in a couple of enticing prizes, and you’ll see everyone at full concentration trying to make the right guess. But that’s just one out of the many games out there – feel free to use your creativity to come up with your own games or do a little research on your own! Otherwise, if you’re out of ideas – here’s a list to help you get started: I Spy Wedding Game: Ask guests to use their own devices such as mobile phones or cameras to take photos of the most special or fun moments of the day. Stand Up, Sit Down: A host will announce a set of funny questions, and a guest will sit down or stand up to answer, which stands for “yes” and “no”, respectively, or vice versa. Couple’s Crossword: Come up with your own crossword including special events you’ve spent together, such as the time you both … Read More
