Hi, I'd like to have a Host Appreciation Event in February to thank all of my hosts for their hospitality and for being such an important part of my business. I thought I'd post my ideas here, but I'd love more input on similar events you all may have done! I'd like to use the opportunity to share our new recipes and spring/summer products...I'm NOT looking to get bookings or sales out of this event (although I won't turn them away if I do!). I just don't want to turn people off by thinking I'm tricking them into hosting another show. I really do want to just make this a special way of saying thanks. I will, however, make sure people know about the discontinuing products, since it will be their last chance to pick those up. I'm planning to have an on-time drawing and another drawing about an hour into the event. I've got a ton of extra stuff on hand, so I was planning on giving extra products as the door prizes. Other things I'm thinking - prepare one (maybe two) of the new Celebrations recipes, along with some Pampered Chef tea (and other beverages). I've got the Farmer's Market Seasonings, so I'll make those too. I'm not planning to do a demo since they've all been through one in the last several months (I just started in September). I'll also give each person a new mini-catalog and recipe cards with the new Celebrations recipes. That's about all I've thought of so far. Any other suggestions of things to do or hand out as take-aways? Thanks!!
