You should never go to a trade show empty-handed. Statistics show that 52% of trade show attendees are more likely to enter a booth that provides giveaways and 34% of exhibitors credit their giveaways with bringing more people to their booth. So, how can you design a trade show giveaway that your customers will love? Great promotional products for trade shows should be useful and relevant. Here are some items that most trade show attendees will love.
Reusable water bottles
Reusable water bottles can be used for several months or even years afterwards and provide an eco-friendly alternative to disposable cups. They make great branded merchandise for exhibitions and trade shows.
Reusable Travel Mugs
Mugs are known as one of the most durable promotional products. However, many of trade show attendees are constantly on the go and they might not make much use out of a standard mug. A portable mug, on the other hand, could become a treasured item allowing them to sip their morning coffee on their commute and while travelling (all the while seeing your brand’s logo in the corner of their eye).
Power banks are portable, easy to use and always come in handy, whether it’s on a plane or in the outdoors, making them fantastic trade show giveaways.
Bottle openers can be extremely useful for trade show attendees. They are lightweight, small and can be added to a keychain and kept around for many months.
Most of the professionals attending trade shows and exhibitions are probably travelling to get there and many likely travel frequently. If you can provide useful promotional items for travel, then it will be much appreciated. Your travel kit can contain an eye mask, earplugs, mini shampoo and toothpaste for example.
Branded umbrellas make fabulous trade show giveaways, especially during the fall and winter. Many people will not invest in a quality umbrella themselves so they’ll be more than happy to see your brand offering free giveaways.
Tote bags are a trade show staple and for good reason. With all of the little trinkets people are receiving they need a place to hold them and a tote bag works perfectly. Tote bags are also foldable and easy to pack and therefore can be used long after the trade show as an eco-friendly bag for groceries, gym clothes, work items and more.
