Did You Know? Holiday Gifts

Posted by Nathan Boyd on Sep 11, 2018 5:15:02 PM

Did you know?  

1.  Gift giving is stressful work. The majority (36.7%) of people surveyed actually find the pressure of finding the right gift a little time consuming.  

2.  A surprising 11% of men skip buying gifts altogether because of stress related procrastinating. That’s sad and Global Evento can help!

3.  No one really wants a gift related to their work. Well, almost no one. 0.06% of people asked actually want you to get a gift that reflects their profession so steer clear if you want to give a stellar gift.  

4.  Grandparents are the new big spenders, but grandpas need to brush up on their shopping skills.  Sorry Grandpa, grandfathers are least likely to give the best gift of the season. 0.17% of respondents named their grandfather as most likely to give the best gift. They were at the bottom of the list, even below co-workers. The good news is that it’s only up from here!

Did You Know? Running of the Bulls

Posted by Nathan Boyd on Jul 16, 2018 2:33:19 PM

Did you know?  

1.  There is no difference between the Running of the Bulls and the San Fermin Festival.  The international, English name of the festival is Running of the Bulls. The official Spanish name is Sanfermin (all one word).

2.  Each year, the city hosts 1,000,000 participants over the week

3.  The average bull clocks in at 1,600 to 1,700 pounds and the course is only 875m long.  

4.  The world at large knew little about the Running of the Bulls for many centuries. That changed when Ernest Hemingway published "The Sun Also Sets," which takes place during the event.

Contact Global Evento to learn more about how we can help create your next gifting experience a memorable one and if Running of the Bulls is a bucket list experience, call us.  We would love to run again with you next year.

Did You Know? Havaianas Sandals

Posted by Nathan Boyd on Jun 13, 2018 4:44:04 PM

Did you know that....

1. The name Havaianas is Portuguese for Hawaiians.

2. The ’98 World Cup birthed one of Havaianas best selling and notable styles—the “Brasil”. To celebrate the ‘98 World Cup, Havaianas launched a style with a small Brazilian flag on the strap which soon became an object of desire internationally.

3. Havaianas officially became a fundamental part of Brazilians’ lives.  In fact, they were even listed by the Brazilian government in a list of fundamental products to control inflation, just like rice and beans.

4. Between the threat of the Millennium bug and anxiety for the year 2000, Havaianas created a special model to mark the occasion. It was the first sandal that glowed in the dark.

Posted by Nathan Boyd on May 23, 2018 12:18:07 AM

Did you know that....

2. Americans celebrate Cinco De Mayo more than their southern neighbors. It is actually just a minor holiday in Mexico, to highlight the Mexican army’s underdog victory over French troops at the Battle of Puebla. Who knew?
