Event Applications

The event represented in this example is a fictitious National Sales Meeting. Because the meetings typically focus on teamwork, performance, competitive knowledge, and strategy a baseball theme is chosen to leverage these key messages. Do not use logos, trademarks, or other properties 3M does not own or have permission for in the designs.




  • Tie the message and imagery to the core theme and the subject matter’s value proposition, benefits, or brand promise.
  • Design the themed montage so it can be leveraged and integrated throughout other materials.
  • Follow the standards for literature covers or download a template.



  • Montage is designed to be adapted to multiple layouts.
  • Messaging is clear, concise, and informative.



  • Visit the 3M Branded Merchandise section to learn how to create 3M branded merchandise to be given to employees or distributed to attendees.
  • If feasible, incorporate themed montage elements across the top of plaques.
  • Use only 3M approved suppliers.
