Tips For Putting Together A Great Event Folder

by Penny Ferguson

If you are heading an event or a conference, there is a good chance that you want to make sure that all of the guests attending have all of the information that they need to succeed. This is critical because it will allow your staff to avoid being overwhelmed by questions that could be easily answered in an information guide. However, it can be easy for your folders to become overwhelming, which means that no one will look at the information residing within them. This can render your folders useless. Here are some tips for putting together a great event folder.

1. Vary the Colors of the Sheets

The first thing that you want to do is vary the colors of the sheets of paper that you are using. This could be more expensive due to the fact that you will need to pay to print everything on colored paper, but it will also increase the chances that people will actually read the information within the folders. Consider having all of your warm tones on one side of the folder and all of your cool tones on the other side of the folder. Have schedule information on the left side and details about each of the speakers on the right side. This will allow people to easily remember which color of paper has which information and navigate the folder more easily.

2. Vary the Size of the Sheets

If you have some basic information that everyone will need to know and refer to regularly throughout the day, it might be in your best interest to put this on a smaller piece of paper that is attached to the front of the folder with a paperclip. Varying the size of the sheets will also make it easier for people to go through the folder and find the information that they need quickly.

3. Invest in Sturdy Folders

Finally, be sure that you are investing in folders that are sturdy enough for people to use as a surface to take notes on, especially if you only have chairs in your meetings, rather than chairs and tables. This will increase the utility of the folder.

For more information, talk to a folder stuffing company. They will be able to help you choose the folders and paper that you need in order to create an effective event information folder. They will also help you put together those folders as quickly as possible.
