Event Branding

No event is ever meaningful to everyone, but the right event branding will bring you the right crowd. Event branding is an aspect of event management that makes people attend again and again. More people are likely to attend your events because of the hype. Creating an event brand primarily involves connecting with your audience and making them resonate with your message. By building a strong event brand that works across all communication channels, we share a cohesive message about your event – who you are, what your event is about and the benefits of attending.

Our History

Like many great enterprises, NOVEL Nigeriastarted just as an ideawas developed for over 4 years. The desire not to build a mediocre and a hand-to-mouth enterprise motivated, and made the NOVEL vision a bigger and global one. NOVEL Nigeria officially began commercial service on 1st September, 2016 with a team of two (Kingsley Ndimele and Olanrewaju Jegede). Growing as an infant company, we were seen as ‘unserious grasshoppers’ that will not amount to anything much. Kingsley Ndimele founded the company as an undergraduate (Part 2) in the Department of Agricultural Economics, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State. He started with just a Canon 600D Digital Camera. HHe was closely supported by his roommate, Olanrewaju Jegede (A Part 4 student in the Department of Management and Accounting, Obafemi Awolowo University), who later became the Production Manager (2016 – 2018) of NOVEL Nigeria. Amidst criticisms and persecution, the growth rate and consistency of the company has been ove…

Creative Ideas To Plan Low Cost Wedding Events In Nigeria

Worried about how you will afford the wedding of your dreams? Weddings are supposed to be joyous occasions, not occasions that break the bank. You need a better idea of how to plan a wedding without going broke. You can find a less expensive alternative to almost every element.

Figure out which elements of the wedding and reception are most important to you. Those are the things on which you will spend the most money.

Most people could get by with little or no extra decorations at their ceremony lo…

Enough of Empty Seats and Low Attendance in Your Events (Part 1)

Poor attendance is one of the biggest frustrations in most events. I know how it feels scanning your event room, proud of the job you did organizing a dope event, but empty chairs fill the room. Some people really do not understand that not showing up to an event costs money, wastes resources and makes it difficult to plan the next event effectively. What went wrong? Sure, unpredictable stuffs come up. It’s easy to write off poor attendance on the premise that people simply are overscheduled. “I should be there is different from “I will be there”, but we often don’t notice the difference until we’re staring bitterly at empty seats. So, what can be done to ensure your seats are filled?

Make sure your event information gives detailed instructions on how to make it to the event for those that wants it. This includes venue address, arrival time, driving and parking instructions and anything else that will be useful to your busy guests. If this is a local event, send an email with and las…

Why Guests Are Vexed and Impatient Over Food at Most Public Events

A serious fight broke out between some ladies at a public event. According to eye witnesses, the fight started following a tensed argument over food at the event. The ladies who were ‘dressed to kill’ in red and white attire – threw punches at each other and dragged themselves by the hair while the fight raged on. Even one of the ladies’ wig was removed in the clash and some who tried to separate the fight, pushed away. Other guests and staff at the event who were left shocked and embarrassed by the fight, later separated the aggrieved ladies.

Food is often one of the largest, if not the largest expenses for most events. As budget continues to shrink and the cost of food continues to rise, our capability to cater and serve our event guests satisfactorily increase our heartbeats. If serving food at events was really about feeding people, it would probably be more cost effective to give guests and attendees cash or vouchers to go across the street to the nearest fast food restaurant. C…
