London’s Top Venues for Product Launches08 October 2020
You’re finally launching your new product. It’s perfect and you know it, but it’s time for the public to know it too. So how do you go about showing it off to the world?
Before you even start to plan your product launch event, you need to define what the objective of your event is. Do you want it to be an experience-based event where your guests are awed by the circumstance, or do you want to create an environment where the product is the centre of attention and everything that happens revolves around it?
Don’t be afraid to get creative with your launch. This is the perfect opportunity to think outside the box. If possible, ask your guests to interact with your brand or your product to give them a sense of familiarity that will encourage sales.
Remember to create buzz about your product and your event. PR is everything when launching something new into the market, so now is the time to MAKE A FUSS! Make sure that your target audience is talking about your brand and there are growing expectations for the big reveal. This will help hype up the product for the day of the launch and get people excited to attend and see for themselves what you’re putting out into the market.
Obviously choosing the right venue is key in the whole planning process. Look for a venue that adapts to your needs in terms of capacity, technical requirements, catering and location. You need a place that will help you bring your creative ideas to life, so make sure it’s versatile and adaptable, and above all, that it won’t overshadow your product, but rather work seamlessly with your set-up to make it stand out.
