At Veertly, we know how important it is to come up with new and creative ideas for online events to keep attendees happy. One innovative way to spice up your next corporate event, online workshop or virtual conference is with event boxes. In this blog post, we'll introduce you to 7 special online event boxes that are guaranteed to wow.
Add a fun networking opportunity to your selected online event app by sending attendees a DIY cocktail box. The box contains all the ingredients and utensils needed to make a delicious cocktail yourself. Organize a live tasting during the event and give attendees the opportunity to share ideas and make new contacts.
Encourage participants' creativity during your corporate event by sending them a creative box. This can include painting and drawing materials, craft supplies, Lego Technic elements or even a small DIY project. Plan a joint creative session as part of your online event, where everyone works together on their projects and gets inspired.
Give participants a little time out during your multi-day online event with a wellness box. Fill it with relaxing products such as scented candles, bath salts or aromatherapy oils. Plan a short break during the event or at the end of a busy event day, where everyone can relax with the contents of their wellness box.
Make sure attendeesstay energized during your corporate event by providing them with a snack box. Choose healthy, high-energy snacks to keep energy levels high during the event. This can be combined with a lunch session on healthy eating.
Add fun and competition to your online event platform by sending participants a game and quiz box. This box can contain various puzzles, brainteasers, puzzles or board games. Organize a joint game round during the event, where the participants can prove their skills.
Support local businesses and present regional products to participants in a "Local Treasures" box. Fill the box with food, crafts, or other special items from the region where your company is located to create a personal connection with participants and highlight your company's values.
Show participants that you or your organization cares about sustainability by sending a sustainability box. This can include eco-friendly products such as reusable water bottles, bamboo toothbrushes, or cloth bags. Take the opportunity to talk about conservation and sustainable practices during the event, and encourage attendees to implement them in their daily lives. In general, sustainability is playing an increasingly important role in the event industry. With the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) coming in place and affecting thousands of companies in Europe, acting sustainable becomes inevitable.

They offer a variety of boxes, from corporate event boxes, catering and party boxes to onboarding and creative boxes. Their strength lies in their flexibility, both in how the boxes are put together and how they can be customized to fit the event and the needs of their clients.
SwagUp is another well-known event box provider that focuses on personalized promotional products and gift boxes. Although they are originally from the US, they also offer their services in Europe. SwagUp stands out for their user-friendly online design tool that allows customers to design their own boxes according to their ideas.
