Case Study: A post Covid survival kit for In the Zone, Leyland

In the Zone, a serviced offices and business support provider in Leyland, Lancashire approached to provide them with various items they could put together as a COVID-19 survival kit for their clients.

In the Zone have been a client of for some time. BusinessGiftUK have supplied branded gifts such as branded pens and notepads to gift to their tenants, who are located at their serviced offices, or clients who use their boardroom for events. They have also supplied promotional gifts for expos such as teddy bears wearing branded t-shirts and place mats.
Return to work

As lockdown measures began to ease, In the Zone owner, Mandy Cardwell, was being contacted by tenants, keen to return to their serviced offices. To facilitate their safe return, she wanted to put together a kit to make the transition easy for clients, whilst also promoting In the Zone and the services they can provide.
BGUK and ITZ agreed that the kit should include a celebratory bottle of Prosecco (why not?), along with hygiene items such as a face mask, hand gel, wipes, tissues and gloves. For the branded gifts, we suggested a pen and notepad, which are always popular, and a sports bottle. The sports bottle was key in putting the package together; rather than use communal glasses which In the Zone haven’t been able to provide during the pandemic, each client could take ownership of their own bottle to avoid cross contamination.
The In the Zone meeting room is now available to hire again. At the time of writing, up to 4 people can safely use the room at any one time but eventually they expect to get back to the full 20 person capacity, complete with branded pads and pens for all delegates.

The COVID survival kits were gratefully received, and BGUK were given some wonderful feedback from the client: “Our promotional gifts have been a very effective marketing tool at networking events, and the personalised pens and pads are popular with clients who book our boardroom for meetings.  Overall, the service from is fantastic.
