You would normally see people with welding helmets in workshops working on metal. These welders are unsung heroes when it comes to creating metal-related items. Not only creating items, but they also fix things for you. So, why not celebrate the wonderful craftsmen with a festival. A unique way to honor and represent them is by wearing welding helmets. Here are some ideas on how to organize a welding helmet festival

Create a list of welders in town

How would a welding helmet festival be without the presence of the welders? You want to make sure every welder in town are informed and invited to attend this special moment. There are probably hundreds of welding companies in town. Each company might consist of several welders. A solution to this is by googling for welders in town and noting down the addresses and contacts. The next thing you need to figure out is the way to reach them. Probably the most efficient way is by email. However, the most effective way would be visiting them directly. This would be a more personal approach. It will show how serious you are in organizing the occasion. For this, you need to make a team as it would be exhausting to do it on your own.

Create a unique concept for the festival

Well, wearing a welding helmet itself is unique. But is that all the festival has to offer? That would be pretty boring if indeed it is. You and your colleagues would need to find an idea to make the festival entertaining and unforgettable. As in most festivals, you will need to determine the route of the march. Well, the idea of the festival is to wear a helmet. Welders want to show how unique and creative their welding helmets are, However, you must not forget to ask permission to local authorities for the march.

Apart from that, you might want to include live music. Even better, you may also want to include awards or competitions. A great example would be giving an award for the person with the most outrageous welding helmet. If you do decide to have live music, you need to determine the ideal location. And of course, you need to choose the artists. In doing so, it would be better if you do a survey on what type of music the welders like. This occasion is to honor them, so there’s nothing wrong about spoiling them.

Getting sponsors for the event

Collecting money for the event can be done in many ways. The first target would be the welding companies. This event is to for the welders working in their company, so why not returning the favor Another way to collect money is by asking sponsorship to the local government. This would be a great chance for the local government to show their care and support for the society.

Doing some gigs on the streets would also be a good way to raise money for the festival. Depending on what skills you and the committee have, this may include playing music or even doing some attractions like juggling. Doing gigs on the street while at the same time promoting the event would be a great idea.

Telling everyone in town about the festival

You would want people in town to attend the festival. There are many ways to announce the event to the society. You can go to radio stations. Your team might also want to create creative and catchy brochures to be shared.
However, out of the marketing strategies, the most effective and efficient one would be online marketing. This would go through several steps. First, of an, you certainly need to have the content. The content needs to be in line with effective content marketing principles. After that, you would need to find a place to post the content. Social media would be your number one priority. There is no need how effective social media marketing is Almost everyone has an account and is active. Not only that, but you would also need to ask people to share the posting. By doing that, your message would be spread quite quickly.
