Fun fact of the day: SWAG = Stuff We All Get. Really! 

And nothing screams swag like a trade show. Handing out branded gifts in a trade show environment can be very effective at creating brand recall, branded impressions and creating long-lasting relationships. 

Are you on the fence about corporate swag at your next trade show?

  • According to a study from PPAI, 85% of recipients of promotional products do business with the advertiser. 
  • The Trade Show News Network reports that 81% of trade show attendees have a more favorable impression of a company that gives away promotional products. 
  • The ASI found that 89% of consumers can recall the advertiser of a promotional product they received in the past two years. 
  • Another survey reveals that 72% of trade show attendees who received a promotional product recalled the name of the company that gave it to them. 

Bringing corporate swag to your booth or table at a trade show makes a lot of sense! From classic corporate trade show swag to new and exciting ideas, the options are endless. 

Check out some of our top budget friendly picks for this year’s best trade show swag: 

1. 5×7 Notebook

The Bullet 5″ x 7″ Large Rainbow Notebook comes in red, blue or black. This notebook includes 80 white-ruled pages and features a matching color elastic closure and ribbon bookmark. This notebook is less than $3! 

2. Water Bottle with Bamboo Lid

One of our favorite budget friendly water bottles, this 22oz reusable bottle is stylish and eco friendly – the body of the bottle is made from 100% recycled plastic and the lid is 100% bamboo. While there is a minimum order quantity of 125, the bottles are less than $5 each! 

Bonus points, have bottled water under your table for attendees to pour directly into the new water bottle! 

3. Tech Sticker

Always one of our top recommendations, tech stickers are perfect for a tradeshow. They are essentially weightless and super easy to carry around. All of the tech stickers can be custom die cut in any shape or size.

Give extras to your staff and clients, everyone loves a tech sticker to add to a water bottle or laptop cover.

4. Tech Taco

The Tech Taco is exactly what it sounds like, a “taco” for your tech accessories! It’s an organizational tool that will help keep your headphone and charging cords in order. Fold it around your cords like a taco shell, snap, and be on your way. 

Perfect for a trade show because it’s small and lightweight, easy to carry into and around the event! Plus, they are just $2!

5. Pop Socket

If you’ve tried a pop socket, you know you can’t go back! 

A Pop Socket is a plastic circle that you attach to a flat phone (or case) with a sticky adhesive. Once you “pop” it out, you can slip your fingers in between your phone and the end of the Pop Socket, allowing for a more comfortable and tighter grip.

Everyone has their phone on them at all times – add your logo to a Pop Socket and enjoy that extra branding day in and day out. At a minimum order quantity of 25, these are just $7!

BONUS IDEA: Use a company store at your next trade show event! Rather than giving everyone who walks by a small item, offer real prospects the opportunity to select swag from your company store on an iPad at your booth. All swag can ship immediately upon ordering, to be at the recipient’s house when they arrive home!
