Event and Promotional Services
Our staff excels in crafting and executing turnkey event and promotional services. We work with our client's brands, themes and initiatives to help them exceed their event goals for attendance, awareness, enjoyment and loyalty. Our unique specialty is being able to staff and deliver this, often with instant, on-site personalization, at events all over the world on a surprisingly modest budget. Services include:
Not enough headcount to get the job done? Acting as an extension of your events department, our talented staff can coordinate and plan your tradeshows and corporate events, remotely or from your office. We manage around 100 client events a year in many states and multiple countries and provide professional onsite staff for most of them.
With laser and diamond tip engravers, debossers, embroidery machines & industrial printers, we can personalize a wide variety of items on virtually any surface such as glass, metal, leather, fabric and wood. All can be set up discretely or become part of the show. Everyone keeps a gift with their name on it and appearing next to your logo really connects your brand.
Nothing captures the moment like a picture or video, especially when made extra memorable with fun ‘green-screen’ backgrounds or visiting VIPs such as Santa or a basketball star. Our green-screen technology adds flair by placing attendees into any scene imaginable and all images can immediatley be posted, printed and emailed.
Our onsite photo activities involve attendees in your booth or event, gives you time to chat, sends them away with a branded photo memento and can also drive traffic to your website or social media for photo viewing.
When we put their name on a giveaway or photo, prospects expect to have their badge scanned 'to get the spelling right'. Since it's such a natural time to capture lead information, our Lead STaR (Superior Tracking and Reporting) System has proven very popular and successful. It works on tablets, kiosks or laptops and can record NPI data for our medical clients. Personalized gifts can be delivered to reps to motivate followup client meetings.
For over a decade, half our business has been with large medical companies so we are experts in crafting popular promotions that are acceptable under the PhRMA and AdvaMed guidelines, such as personalized educational pieces and entertaining imaging with no physical gift.

They should just be less than $10 (and what better way to make a cheap gift special than to personalize it?) and we can supply the system to track these gifts against the National medical Provider Index (NPI).
With over thirty years of retail promotion success and two decades of fan photography at spectator events, Ardent also has the know-how to handle their special staffing, customer service and online delivery requirements.
For two decades we have been supplying engaging, attractive interactive media activities, for those clients that choose not to give anything away. Often they involve photos or video and tie well into later uploading to the client's website to drive traffic, or their Facebook page to make friends.
When the attendance list is known in advance, say for a company sales or customer advisory meeting, we can personalize thank-you gifts or awards ahead of time in our facilities. This saves money since it is less expensive to ship the goods than the staff and equipment.
Over 2/3 of tradeshow attendees admit they have used someone else's badge to get into a show at least once in their career. Because of that, and heightened security, tradeshow and conference hosts are starting to require photo nametags, which Ardent is more than capable of providing.
