Why hire promotional staffHiring Promotional Staff Q&A

For many of our clients, they are unsure about how hiring event, conference and promotional staff ‘works’. The team at Envisage Promotions thought we would take a look at some of the more common and frequently asked questions and provide the answers.

1. How do promotional staff know what to do?
With experience in working at conferences, trade shows, events and exhibitions across a range of industries, our promotional staff have the background knowledge of how events work, what needs doing, what shouldn’t be done and so on.
We also make sure that we fully understand your objectives too. This way, our staff will be fully briefed before they arrive, pinpointing what their role is at the event.

2. How do you choose the staff for my trade show stand?
We look at the event itself, the nature of it, the industry and what your brand does. We have a huge database of professional staff from a range of backgrounds thus, we match the best people to the event or trade show.

3. What will they wear?
When you hire a team, you can specify what you would like them to wear. Some clients ask for ‘smart casual’ attire or a certain colour of clothing. Other clients want promotional staff in business suits. Other clients provide uniforms for staff to wear.

4. How many promotional staff will I need?
The number of staff you need to hire will depend on many factors such as your budget, the size of your stand, estimated working hours and footfall and so on. Some businesses hire one or two people whilst others hire a larger team.

5. Will it be the same team of people?
In most cases, yes it will but again, there are factors that affect this, such as how long the show goes on for. Some businesses hire a team to cover busy periods, whilst other clients want the same team for the duration of the event.

6. What promotional services do you offer?
We offer a range of services, all of which can be incredible for increasing brand exposure and success at a busy trade show. To find out how we can help you, email our team on hello@envisagepromotions.co.uk or call the team on 0844 800 0071.
Our team can do anything from sales to collecting data and information, to administering competitions to sampling or demonstrations. We also have talented performers for hire too, including presenters, dancers and singers.

7. Can promotional staff help to put the stand up and take it down?
Yes, we have staff who can help you create and build your stand. They can also be on hand to collapse your stand after the event, neatly packed away for your nominated courier to pick up.

8. Does the promotional team have lunch and breaks at the same time?
No, they don’t. The team will stagger breaks but more importantly, they understand the need to take lunch etc. outside of peak hours. Again, this common-sense approach comes from the experience of working many conferences, trade shows and exhibitions.

9. Will the promotional staff really understand my brand?
Yes, they will. They will receive all the necessary information they need about you, your brand, products and services, along with their role at the event before they attend.

10. What if I have a complaint?
Rarely do we receive complaints but if you are unhappy with something or want to change something, simply call your nominated event manager on 0844 800 0071.

11. Is it worth the expense of hiring promotional staff?
We know it is! Our professional promotional staff make a huge difference to the brands and business they work with – and that’s why clients come back to us time and time again.

We also know that you will be surprised at how competitively priced hiring promotional staff from Envisage Promotions is too…
