Organizing sporting events in your institution is the best way to bring students and even faculty from different sections together. These events also act as a great platform to identify and acknowledge people who can perform well apart from studies. Moving away from the benefits and talking about organizing, you need to keep a lot of things in mind while organizing the sports event. Placing different types of promotional signages is one such thing. Large-scale sporting events will require a lot of promotional signages to advertise the event and highlight the critical aspects of the event. Let us look at some types of signages that you must put up at the event and their benefits too.
1) Directional Signages
Whether your sports event will take place in a closed setting like a basketball court or an open space, they will take place on extensive grounds and areas. It is essential to place various directional signs all over this large area to let people know about the area. Here are some of the areas you’ll typically require signage for at an event:
- – Entrances
- – Registration area
- – Queues
- – Food and drinks
- – Toilets
- – Green rooms and common rooms
- – Stages or main focal points
- – Information desks
- – Mobile charging stations
- – Smoking areas
- – Exits (both regular and emergency)
- – Parking areas
Apart from these, you can also label other important places or elements in your sporting event so that people know where to go when they have a similar need. If your event requires people to collect participation certificates or any other gifts, make sure you place directional signages to label those areas as well.
No sports event will be complete without different banners put in and around the premises. A hanging event banner is one of the simplest and most effective forms of signage you can put up. You can get them in durable and weatherproof vinyl or fabric ones that are ideal for a one-time event. Irrespective of what material you pick, banners are going to be affordable for you. To start with, the first must-have banner can be as simple as something like “Welcome to the Annual Sports Meet” or something similar. Moving ahead, Other banners can be of the teams taking part in the event. Sponsor banners can also be put up at different points to promote your sponsors. If you are organizing an inter-college or inter-institution event, make sure you also provide space to other institutions to put their banners up. This way, your sporting event will witness several colourful banners that either greet your guests or advertise parties that are a part of the event.
3) Standee Banners
When talking about promotional signages, standee or roll-up banners are something that you shouldn’t miss out on. If you’re not able to hang a banner or encounter areas where hanging a banner from a wall or ceiling is impractical or prohibited, then a banner stand is your next best option. These promotional signages can be ideal to outline the benefits of being a part of your institution to attract students and even teachers. Use the sports event as an amazing opportunity to tell people why they should be a part of your institution. But that isn’t something that you want to do explicitly, you can use standee banners for other purposes as well. Use these banners to communicate something that you would’ve otherwise communicated through directional signages or banners. Standee banners are portable and can be placed anywhere on the premise according to the requirement. For instance, if you are planning a tournament for several days and you are using standees for outlining the rules of the games, you can place standees at different venues of games without printing several different banners for multiple places.
4) Floor Graphics
Floor graphics are an impeccable promotional signage option for sporting events. These can add another dimension to your event. They’re also excellent as a way of providing event guests with directions to important parts of the venue. Rather than putting up directional signages, you can opt for these stickers to be put on the ground. Apart from providing directions of the event, you can use these stickers to promote the teams competing in the event. A mere logo of all the teams participating put up at different parts of the premise is a good decor idea too. Talking about the benefits of this type of promotional signage is that they are affordable, easy to design and print, and customizable. You can customize adhesive floor graphics to almost any size, shape or design.
5) Object Graphics
Think big if you wish to make a big impact through your sporting event. Use up usual and unexpected places to put up promotional signages related to your event. Sky’s the limit to utilize different points of your event’s venue if you have the required permits. Pillars, ceilings, stairs, bannisters, walls, and a lot of other places in your premise can be used to put up large signages. The biggest benefit of doing the same is that you get a lot of space to put up your promotional and otherwise content. Let’s take, glass walls, for instance. Glass walls have been one of the best options to put up wall graphics and decals as you can cover the entire surface area to promote your sports event or your institution as a whole. Think about what you’d want to put up about the sports event or your institution, get it designed, and cover the decided surface with the right graphics.
