Cool event swag is always one of the highlights at special events. Attendees are trolling for clever, cool, high-quality promotional products, evaluating and comparing the giveaways offered by various vendors—and the very best stuff, they’re taking home and using. If you have a well-planned and fully branded booth, and awesome event swag, you’re on your way to being the hit of any show.

With that in mind, here are some promotional product must haves for your next event!

Cool Swag #1

Everybody attending your next event will be using his or her cell phone, keeping in touch with the home office or clients or kids. They’ll also be checking email, tweeting or trying to connect with others at the event. Even if their phones were charged that morning, chances are batteries will be running low on power by lunch time. You could save the day with this inexpensive, super-convenient, retractable cell charger. This is such a practical and smart tool that every attendee will want one—great for increasing booth traffic during the event. And, after everybody has gone home, this handy, little, low-cost giveaway will continue to help you connect with professionals who will see your brand every time they charge their phones.

Cool Swag #2

Virtually everyone still takes notes, makes sketches or doodles around with ideas on paper. The problem is transferring those brilliant thoughts and sketches from paper to a digital format. Well, one of the most popular designers of paper-related products, Moleskine®, has come up with an exciting solution—the new Evernote® Smart Notebook. This beautiful notebook lets you use Evernote’s Page Camera feature to digitize pages using your smartphone or tablet. How cool is that? Now, you can turn each page into digital content you can organize, store and use with a single click. If you’re in the market for a slightly more expensive promotional item, the Evernote Smart Notebook is the perfect choice.

Cool Swag #3

When attending an event, a sudden summer shower—or a torrential downpour—can really put a damper on things. That’s why umbrellas should be considered as a member of the awesome swag club. If it begins to rain, attendees will flock to your booth once word gets around that you have the most valuable item at the show. You will be a personal hero for lots of people, your organization will be known as the smart one, and your well-branded giveaway item will be kept and used by your target audience long after the show is over.

These promotional products are only a small sampling of the branded giveaways we offer. So, give me a call and we’ll talk about your giveaway needs. I can help you find the kind of event swag that will blow the socks off your competition. I’d also love to hear about the most successful, and coolest, swag you’ve given away.
