Event Program Design That Engages
An event program is a page, brochure, booklet, or digital asset that explains the proceedings of an event, often featuring information about a show’s history, values, supporters, leaders, and contact details (such as websites or social media handles). Event programs act as a guide for participants to minimize confusion, keep attendance organized, and sometimes to encourage donations and other forms of support from the audience.
Event programs add an additional layer of professionalism to an event and can even serve as memorable tokens (think: playbills). When designed well, event programs can lead to significant monetary contributions and a more profound social presence as audience members go online to support and follow your work. Creative Repute is here to help.
Our team designs stunning programs that enhance events, encourage funding, and serve as beautiful marketing mementos.
