An exhibition (or trade show) in the most general sense, is an organised presentation and display of a selection of items. It is an organised event where businesses go to show their latest products, talk to attendees about a new service they are offering or, to gain some contacts in their specific business sector.

There are many exhibitors at these events so businesses need to come up with some exciting ideas to entice attendees to their stand.

One way to do this is by using a range of promotional products. Three results from a recent survey have shown that when someone is given a promotional item at an exhibition they feel:

79% Appreciated

47% Happy

21% Impressed

Giving out promotional items at your display stand next time you exhibit is a great idea, but which items are right for your company?

Everyone loves a toy

Branded toys are not just for children. At many exhibitions your will see attendees playing with branded yo-yos, games and puzzles around the stands of an exhibitor. It’s an innovative way to attract people to your stand and talk to them about a new product or service. Branded stress toys make for a fun addition to your stand. Your company logo can be added to a variety of shaped stress toys to be given away at an exhibition.

The gift of charging on the go

At exhibitions, people are on the move all day, visiting stands and talking business. As well as the attendees there is something else that might get a little worn out, your mobile phone battery. Be the exhibitor with the power by giving out branded power bank chargers for the attendees. These chargers are going to be used throughout the day, when people head home or back to their offices. Your branding is going to go with them and be seen by many, wherever they may travel.

Branded themed items

If you’re exhibiting at a convention, why not make the promotional products you give out related to the convention theme? Here are some examples:
