Whether you’re attending as a business or as a delegate, there’s nothing better than coming away with a bag of free goodies whenever you go to a conference. Yes, they can be long, and you need to concentrate a lot, but it’s so much more than that.
You get the opportunity to network, put faces to names, and discover new information in your industry. But if you’re there as a business, you’ve got a chance to make a real impression on your prospective clients. Here’s how.
It’s simple, it’s practical, and it’s effective. The mighty keychain has been part of the standard package in conference goody bags for decades now, and you can see why. After all, if it’s not broken, don’t fix it, right?
As a business, investing in some custom keychains is a way for prospective clients to see your name every time they use their keys, which is a lot – as in, multiple times a day.
And from your perspective, they’re small, reasonably priced, and easy to transport. It couldn’t get any easier.
2. Reusable Water Bottles
This one is a bit newer to the conference but more and more, we’re seeing reusable water bottles making their way into the board room. And it’s not hard to see why. They’re practical, save users money in the long run, and help to keep users hydrated—all very important aspects to consider.
While water bottles will cost you as a business a little more than the keychains, they’re guaranteed to go down well. And with the suggested daily amount of water at four to six cups, providing your prospective clients with water bottles will mean that your logo will end up sitting on their desks all day long – and they’ll see it every time they take a sip.
3. Wireless Chargers
Stick with us for this one. We know this isn’t a cheap option, but just hear us out.
Wireless charging is the new trend in the tech world, and it’s genuinely making its mark. We’re now even seeing some car manufacturers installing them so you can charge your car as you drive.
While they’re an expensive option, they’re also a very flashy option. Do you know what that will mean? Your prospective clients will remember you.
Who wouldn’t remember the business giving out the latest in new technology? And as we need to charge our cells at least once daily, your name will be noticed far more than many other freebie options.
How Will You Promote Your Business?
It pays to be ahead of the game when it comes to conference freebies. Our best piece of advice would be to consider how you can help make your customers’ lives more convenient.
A keychain helps to identify important keys, a water bottle saves on buying several a day, and a wireless charger – well, that one is obvious.
Don’t let conferences go by without taking the opportunity to promote your business like never before. Good luck!
