Event Planning - What’s In Your Swag Bag?

Selecting appropriate giveaways for your tradeshow can be a tricky task. Trade show giveaways, if good, can be a great method to promote, market, and advertise your company and products or service for trade shows, conventions, conferences, and other marketing events and gatherings. On the other hand if you choose something people don’t want or are apt to throw in the trash immediately after they get it, you can easily lose a lot of money and miss out on a great opportunity to promote brand or product awareness. Therefore, it’s very important to select the right promotional giveaway for your event. You may consider consulting professional event planners. Professional corporate event planners at Plan Ahead Events can help you decide the best giveaways for your events.

Here are some good tradeshow giveaway ideas brought to you exclusively by Plan Ahead Events.

·        Give something useful
The swag worth investing in is the type item that attendees will find useful. For example: If you're at a conference for pet owners, give away branded leashes, or portable dog bowls. 

·        Give something that makes economic sense
This means that if you are selling a low price item, you probably can't afford a high priced giveaway item. It is usually a good idea to have a low-cost general giveaway item such a custom-imprinted pen with your company name, tag line, phone number, and website on them.

·        Tell them you care
Conference attendees are on their feet all day, spending hours running around to different panels. Therefore, it can be a good idea to offer them branded care packages, complete with a quick snack or individually-wrapped herbal tea bags with business information on each wrapper.

·        Custom Coffee mugs
Custom coffee mugs are time-tested great idea for promotional marketing giveaways. They allow a lot of surface area for customizing with your company name and logo and contact information.

·        USB  Memory sticks
USB memory sticks with your company information are slightly expensive but great giveaways for your event marketing as they are easy to carry around and the potential customers love them.

·        Go green
Green trade show giveaways seem to be all the rage these days and get a lot of reviews. With more companies following the trend toward greener pastures, eco-friendly promotional items are making their way to the trade show floor. By choosing a Green promotional item, you’re making a statement about your brand.
