Promotional products are great for businesses to help raise awareness of your brand to be used as gifts from exhibitions and conferences. They are also great to use as items to sell for people to show their support for your charity.
Using giveaways at events is an extremely popular way of getting more people to visit your exhibition stand. From a tote bag pre-filled with your own literature to a power bank to help people recharge their mobiles while at the event, these gifts help to thank people for visiting your stand and hopefully leave a lasting impression.
When choosing a giveaway, consider what would mean the most to your potential customers and what may stand the test of time once they get back to their office. For more tips on choosing the right promotional gift, read our guide on how to choose the right freebie.
Charities often use branded promotional items to sell as merchandise at events. It’s a great fundraising idea that can help to increase donations via the profits gained. From the buyer’s point of view, they are also getting something back in return for their donation, whether it’s a shopping trolley coin that they can add to their keyrings or a wristband to show their support for the charity.
People are more likely to give a bigger donation to your charity if they are receiving a small token gift in return.
If you’re looking to sell items, make sure your display looks great to grab attention from afar, choosing to use a printed, branded tablecloth to cover any table space and banner stands to tell people who you are.
Promotional items at conferences
If you’re organising a conference, then you may wish to provide freebies in a welcome pack, or giveaways on tables such as pens and sticky notes that they can take home with them as a memento from the event and to use throughout the day.
People always forget to take a pen and paper to conferences to take notes – or find that their favourite pen no longer works, so providing these materials will help increase the value of your conference to your delegates.
