Exciting corporate gifting ideas for all budgets

Obviously, not all businesses are in a position to spend extravagantly and yet would want to stand apart through appropriate gifting options. That’s where Giftex 2012 will come into play. Visit India’s most extensive and comprehensive event of the gifting industry, to find out for yourself.

Here are a few aspects that marketers should keep in mind for a successful gifting program:

On their part, vendors need to grasp dynamics of corporate gifting to create a favorable brand or company image in the minds of prospective clients or employees. A key factor is how much a particular client would like to spend on corporate gifting. An expensive item may not go well with some clients owing to budget constraints. Send a client a basket that comprises an assortment of gifts.

Being thoughtful and personal is another crucial factor because it makes the gifts truly unique. Look for a long-lasting gift that can be used on every day basis. It should be suitable for both male and female. If a client has an idea in mind, vendors should discuss the same to get more information on it. If the gift is for a large client, the giver should consider something of intrinsic value to them. To be in one’s good books, the gift should be personalized.

Another major consideration is whether or not to put a logo on a product. This is a personal preference. Every client enjoys seeing the logo on presents. However, not every recipient would appreciate it. A logo may or may not be appropriate depending on the situation. It is advised to save the logo merchandise for giveaways that are less expensive such as pens, key chains, calendars and mugs.

Of course, budget can often be a constraint as well as a large number of people who need to be covered. The typical gifts in such situation are generally pens, pen holders. The advantage of gifting stationery items is that they are inexpensive and do not create a huge financial burden.

Keeping all the above aspects in mind, you can get exciting, exclusive and economical corporate gifting ideas for all budgets at Giftex 2013 in Mumbai!

Why is India a favorite business destination for global brands?

India is fast emerging as one of the world’s most preferred destinations for conducting business. There are multifold reasons for this. The economy has opened up in recent decades. The Government is keen to welcome the foreign investment.
Emphasizing this aspect, Finance Minister P. Chidambaram recently stated that the country didn’t have choice between spurning and welcoming foreign investment and it was an imperative. While presenting the union budget for 2013-14, he emphasized that thrust on foreign investment was in consonance with the country’s economic priorities. According to him, the government would do all possible things to communicate its policies that encourage investments and he intended to build a business-friendly environment. The FM averred that doing business in the country must be seen as easy, mutually beneficial and friendly.
India’s consumer class is fast expanding. To tap their potential, companies are increasing the overall marketing and promotional spend. The younger people are turning to social media channels, presenting a great opportunity to marketers. India is already among the largest markets for Facebook, with immense potential in social media business landscape.
On the flip side, tastes and preferences of buyers are dramatically changing. Fox example, gone are those good old days when any formal ubiquitous gift would do. Gifting ideas were mostly limited to fancy flower bouquets and sweet boxes in the past. Though they still remain in circulation, corporate clients are looking for innovative, conceptual, customized and thematic presents.
Many global brands are keen to attract this new consumer class. The fast-evolving and exciting corporate gifting/branding domain now beckons many of world’s top companies, keen to expand their business. They are coming up with innovative ideas to leave their imprint on the corporate gifting scene of India. Especially, companies from thriving economies like China are keen to enter the Indian market.
The reflection of this trend is palpable in the changing profile of exhibitors who now form part of Giftex event. Many overseas participants especially from India’s neighboring countries suggest that they are keen to target corporate clientele across wide sectors. Indian gifting industry players are gearing up to face the competition, too. Their strong presence at Giftex clearly underlines this development. Exciting times are ahead for the corporate gifting industry.
Giftex presents you the best opportunity to leverage the intrinsic potential of the corporate gifting domain.
