Best tradeshow giveaway promotional items

Exhibiting at a tradeshow is a big investment. You always want the attendees walk away from your booth with something in hand. This is when promotional products come into play. A carefully chosen promotional product with an effective marketing message and plan will give you the best return on investment.

Here is a few tips to an effective promotional product strategy:

– Email contacts and potential clients about your upcoming tradeshow appearance and invite them to attend

– Time a special product launch at the tradeshow to increase awareness

– Don’t just ‘giveaway’ your promo items. Make sure there is an action item linked to the prom item to the attendees, such as follow-up email, follow-up phone call, or samples

– Increase engagement and participation by strategically placing ipads with interactive presentation, and making the products available for clients to touch and test.

And here are a few promotional items that will leave the attendees something to hold onto:


1. Tote bag


Tradeshow attendees always walk away with samples, catalogs and a nice big tote bag with your name on it will come in handy.


2. Pen


Don’t go for the cheapest pen you can find. A nice retractable ball point that writes smoothly will stick around much longer and therefore giving you a better bang for your buck.


3. Notebook


The average notebook is kept for at least 6 months. Why not have your marketing message put on the notebook as well as on the inside pages?


4. Drinkware


A nice quality mug or water bottle is always loved by attendees of all ages and gender.


5. T-shirt
