Let's face it - trade shows are the best place to get up and personal with potential customers. How do you stand out in the crowd though? You've paid for your booth space, your brochures, your employees to fly in and staff it. Too often at the last moment someone says "hey we should give something away like a pen". Well fortunately here we do specialize in rush production with over sixty percent of our orders shipping in 24 hours or less. But the best thing to do is to bring us in on the decisions made about marketing before the show starts. For example, many trade shows have a theme - perhaps something like "sales on the go", or "seventies". Are you tying your booth look to the theme? Or maybe your actual booth is going to be themed, with your reps wearing a particular color corporate embroidered shirt, and your table top giveaways lined up to match that look. Perhaps your trade show is in Las Vegas (odds are it is!) - so a custom poker chip, promotional dice, glitter mug, or other casino related item might be appropriate. Use Adco Marketing's years of experience to help design logo trade show giveaways to help you shine.
Here are some trends right now we've seen from our recent supplier conference. Technology gifts are still hot for this year. Multi port hubs, power banks that are slim and sleek, car chargers and definitely don't give out a pen without a nice functional stylus on there. We are also seeing a trend in patterns. Rather than plain solid tote bags and mugs, we are seeing totes with a little natural pattern or weave to give it some jazz. Additionally metallic gold and metallic silver promotional products are hot! The custom travel tumblers and umbrellas are also showing metallic patterns as well. Finally, we noticed an overall increase in funcationality. People want giveaways clients and potential clients will use either at home or in the office.
Keep an eye on our website, with new products added daily, or better yet give us a call and we can show items that haven't made it up yet. Whether it's unique promotional items or embroidered apparel for your trade show, keep Adco Marketing in mind thanks!
