When planning an event, the elements of service and price are heavily weighed. You want to make sure you're investing in quality service without breaking your budget. Though there are instances where your budget may need to be reconsidered with event needs. In this case you need to ask yourself, is better service worth the price?
Let's look at hotels as an example. You're looking for a place to host your next event and you've come up with two hotels. A veteran hotel who's been around for awhile and who you've worked with before and a newer location that you don't know too much about. Both properties are beautiful, have a great rooms, food, and entertainment. So, what makes one better than the other? You know the service at the veteran location is ideal because you've worked with them before, but what about the newer venue? A change of location might be just enough to enhance your guests' experience this year, but how can you be sure you're getting the same quality service you rely on?
It really comes down to trust. A newer hotel, just like any new business is bound to have some bumps in the road at least in the beginning. While the veteran location is going to have a solid foundation and solutions to problems that may arise on-site at the time of your event. The same could be said of anything you're looking to purchase. You are much more likely to go with a brand or company that you've either worked with before and trust, or at least know of its long standing reputation.
So, shouldn't you take the same approach with your gift program? You want your guests to have a wide variety of premium brands to choose from, a beautiful display setup that resembles a high end boutique, and turnkey service with the best on-site team in the industry. Knowing the amount of choice that attendees want, which brands will resonate with your guests, and what gift categories redeem well are key elements to a successful gifting partner. You'll want all your gifting needs handled, so you can focus on hosting a wonderful event for your guests.
