Why Hotels and Catering Halls Need to Buy Bulk Flash Drives

Weddings represent big business for hotels and catering halls. To get a competitive advantage, these establishments should take a creative angle with marketing efforts. Personalized Bulk Flash Drives featuring highlights of what the hall or hotel has to offer speak volumes. Couples will throw away standard promotional packets provided by the competition and spend their time reviewing this multimedia presentation on a computer.

While some establishments provide blank drives as promotional items, an ingenuitive catering representative will preload drives with all the information an engaged couple needs to make a venue decision for their upcoming wedding. Promotional packets that consist of sheets of paper are expensive and wasteful. Personalized flash drives are cheaper, reusable, and advertise the business each time they are plugged into a computer. 

Preloading a video of a wedding ceremony performed at the venue shows prospective brides how breathtaking their wedding could be. Though catering representatives can describe this or provide pictures, there is nothing like witnessing it. For personal reasons or to make things easier on guests, many couples choose to hold their wedding ceremony at the same location as their reception. A video of the reception that begins with the couple crossing the threshold of the room builds anticipation for when the camera pans to reveal the beautifully decorated area.

A short video of the dancing portion of the event shows how many people the dance floor can accommodate. It also promotes a DJ or band that the venue contracts with for weddings. Couples can kill two birds with one stone by having their catering contact arrange this entertainment. Last, but certainly not least, a video of the cake cutting ceremony highlights the amazing confection that can be prepared by a chef of the establishment.

Separate files containing information regarding wedding packages and pricing make it easy for couples to access the details. Couples do not need to worry about writing everything down when they visit the venue or keeping track of loose papers in a promotional wedding packet. They can take the drive to a parent’s home and pull up the details so the elders know what they are getting into by offering to fund the event.

A side benefit of custom USB drives is the extra space available on the device. Prospective brides can use this to save their wedding-related documents and budget spreadsheets, keeping all their wedding details in one place. This device is much more convenient for them to carry between home and work than is a wedding folder filled with loose sheets of paper. Brides-to-be can work on their wedding during lunch break and before heading home for the evening, saving everything onto the small drive.

By ordering Bulk USB Drives, catering representatives save money because the price per unit is lower. They can select from various styles of colorful, fun plastic drives or shiny metal drives as elegant as the wedding will be. With the venue name and logo imprinted on the case and the wedding presentation loaded onto the device, no engaged couple will forget their favorite venue.
