Millennials are also not looking for the same types of gifts at an incentive event. Where in the past brands and labels might have been important to winners, this generation of younger attendee prefers to choose his or her pillow gifts at an amenity bar, often set up right at check-in. Here, the sponsoring company can offer a choice of everything from beverages for the rooms, to flowers, to custom goodies.
Doug Chorpenning, CEO of Wet Paint Group, offers a sampling of amenity ideas for Millennials:
- Sunglass shop: Let winners choose handmade Shwood wooden sunglasses (vintage style for hipsters of all ages). Each pair is a unique piece of art.
- Graffiti gifts: Tag your brand with urban inspired art on high-quality products, such as American Apparel t-shirts and Burton snowboards.
- Live event art: Commission world-renowned artist John Bukaty to capture the vibe of your event on canvas, then send each attendee an original print as a commemorative piece afterwards.
- Blanket bar: Let attendees choose their own Tourance handmade throw blanket for the trip and to take home.
