08 Feb 6 Top Event Trends For 2019
Last year was all about colour and pop. There was reds, yellows and greens everywhere. The bolder you made your event space, the better. Showy as it was, the aim was to grab attention and as much of it as you can!
Along with these vibrant colours, you had the latest and greatest technology for interacting with your customers. Whether it was a large conference event or a product promotion, online videos and interactive stations were so popular with exhibitors.
So what can you expect from events this year? What trends will you be seeing around the place?
1. State of the art technology
These gadgets and fancy interactive apps are still so big in 2019. Facial recognition apps, live 360 degree videos and gaming will be even more popularthis year. The more techno savvy your event is, the better. The key is therefore to find unique and interactive software to market to your customers.
With so much awesome technology to choose from, stick to one that will make you outshine and throw everything you have at it.
2. Food Stations
With celebrities such as Jamie Oliver plastering their recipes and goodies in shopping centres and magazines, it has started a new crazy for grazing tables! Find the brightest, fresh food and present it on a big cutting board or grazing tray. Try cheese displays, a large tower of macaroons or what about a taco truck?
Feasting through your senses is all 2019. Whether its about food or flower arrangements… delight the senses!
3. Environmentally Friendly
With the environment being a hot topic over the last few years, 2019 is all about being aware of your footprint on the environment. So when you are planning your events, look for recyclable and environmentally friendly options for your events. Choose bamboo straws over plastic, reusable bottles instead of plastics, paper instead of plastic.
4. Fashion Statements
It’s no secret that the best styling tips can be found in fashion and home magazines. It’s the perfect place to scan and take notes on the latest design trends and event tips. Be creative and look for centrepieces that work with your event theme. It could be a funky vase to add to wedding tables or lighting options to create ambiance at your events.
5. Keep it Neutral
2019 is all about adding some class and style to your events. Neutrals are back with avengence. Injecting your wedding with classy beiges and whites are on trend this year. Keep it all simple and romantic. Soft tones and warm colours are all the rage this year.
