Live Event Posters That Open Doors For Event Planners

live event posters


Small business owners hire – or become – event planners to get huge groups of their target market into one venue at one time. Live events – and live event posters – are effective marketing tools for authors, speakers, coaches, consultants, bands, sports teams, graphic designers, caterers, educators, artists – the list is endless. It’s a smart marketing tactic and a great way to introduce your small business and its products and services to a large share of your ideal consumers at one time.

The beauty of hosting live events is that they work for just about any business genre. Using live event posters to market and brand your event is affordable, effective, and attention-grabbing. The tips below are designed to help you create live event posters that spark interest and help excite and guide attendees during your event.

  • Create a poster series that leads attendees from the parking lot and local buses and trains right to your venue door.
  • Create posters that boast your event and post them in close proximity to your planned venue.
  • Create additional marketing posters and post them in the places where your potential attendees spend time.
  • Use easy to read fonts that grab attention, relieve your even staff from repeatedly answering the same questions, and let attendees quickly and easily self-navigate your event venue.
  • If you really want to stand out in the crowd, give your posters a retro or vintage look and feel with our sepia design tools.
  • Use colors that represent your event well whether its primary colors for a children’s education event or soothing colors for a self-care and pampering event.
  • If you really want to get attendee attention, consider using tasteful humor in your poster designs.
