Valentine’s Day is for celebrating love. However, more than being a day for the romantics, V-Day has also become a favorite among businesses because of the opportunities that arise from this occasion.
With many couples breaking their piggy banks on Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day is a great chance to boost your post-holiday revenue -- and what better way to do that than by throwing a themed event?
Whether you’re a restaurant owner, brand manager, or marketer, check out these 5 event ideas that are sure to spread the love and bring customers to your doors:
1. Movie Screening
A crowd favorite, a movie screening is a perfect set-up to a romantic scene. It’s guaranteed to attract a crowd as long as you have a suitable location for a laidback date night. Regardless whether it’s held outdoors or indoors, complete your setup with rows of puffy pillows, short-legged tables, chocolates, popcorns, choice of drinks, and of course, some classic romantic films.
2. Photo Booth
For a Valentine’s Day memory that will live forever, holding a photo booth is a great option. Here, you may prefer hiring a professional photographer but you can also rent a photo booth setup -- just as long as you set it up in a high-traffic area! However, to provide your guests the ultimate photo booth experience, focus on your backdrop and your photo props!
3. Dress-Up Party
On the other hand, if your customers are looking for a lavish celebration, then hosting a dress-up party will be a hit with them. For Valentine’s Day, you may want to consider requiring your guests to wear clothes that fit a specific theme, such as a Masquerade or All-Red. A prize for the Best Dressed Couple should encourage them to put an extra effort with their costumes.
4. Mini Contest
Another different take on Valentine’s Day is to organize a friendly competition. Couples can compete against each other for prizes such as a dinner for two, staycation in a hotel, or tickets to a romantic movie. However, you should have to keep in mind that people might arrive in their Sunday best, and it’s important to opt for small games that will only require minimal physical activity.
5. Live Entertainment
Finally, to take the Valentine’s Day experience to a whole new level, why not sponsor a live show? In choosing your form of entertainment, it’s important to take into consideration your audience and the right choice of performance – whether it’s a theatrical production, a comedy stint, or a jazz performance.
