Planning a trophy cup prize giving or awards ceremony can be stressful; there are just so many things to organise! But at the end of the day, what you really want is for guests to walk away from your event with memories that will last a lifetime.
Speeches are an integral part to any awards ceremony. You need to pick a speaker that is well-spoken, easy to understand, engaging and inspiring! Easier said than done…but one way that you can ensure a successful speech is choose someone who is truly excited about the prize giving, and ask for a copy of their speech beforehand to check that all the content is above board.
Speeches that are too long are a big no-no. People’s attention spans are not as long as they used to be and you don’t want people yawning and checking their watches as your speaker drones on. Anything over five minutes is usually too long.
Atmosphere is very important at any event, and it is one of the hardest things to get right as it is made up of lots of little elements. Make sure that the lighting is comfortable for all participants, no matter where they are seated, and check the sound before the event. You may want to play music softly in the background as guests are arriving to set the mood for the evening.
Give your award winners something to take home with them and remember their achievements by! Providing a trophy or medal for each winner makes them feel appreciated and definitely adds to the overall memorability of your event! Trophies and Engravers provides a wide range of trophies for sale for all budgets and tastes. Feel free to browse our online catalogue.
Who doesn’t love snacks? Once the prize giving part of the event is over, make sure that you are stocked up on a variety of sweet and salty snacks for the participants to munch on. Coffee and tea are usually crowd pleasers too. Providing food and beverages allows guests to mingle after the ceremony and this post-award chatter will definitely create special memories of your event.
