Conferences are great — there are endless networking opportunities, lectures and workshops by industry leaders, and the chance to re-energize worn-out batteries. But let’s be honest, one of the best things about conferences is what’s available on the tradeshow floor — the “swag” (or stuff we all get). These are the items attendees covet; and often the only thing that makes it back to an attendees’ office. But how many logoed BIC pens, magnets and mints can one person use?
We asked Mike Harper, account executive and promotional product genius, at Summit Marketing to provide some unique ideas for promotional products that are sure to get noticed on the tradeshow floor and that will keep your brand in front of your customers long after they’ve left the floor.
