2 in 1 Lanyard Badge Holder with USB Charger

                People love unique gift items that are also useful to them at the same time. Having a lanyard to be given away is one of the useful items in the exhibition since it is essential for carrying conference passes during the show but since you will be offering a Lanyard with a USB charger as a gift item to your visitors, they can still carry it with your brand after the show because of its 2-in-1 functionality that allows them to power up their phones wherever they are without having to carry around extra cords. It is a plus point for your brand because people will remember you for having this cool and useful gift item.

Classy Reusable Bags

                We normally see a lot of typical reusable bags that are given away during the exhibition to visitors because there is no doubt that conference reusable bags are useful during the event for carrying their essentials. But did we consider if it is still useful for them after the event? Well, we have a great solution for you. Why don't you offer your clients a unique bag design yet cost-effective, so you can assure that they will still use it after the event- another marketing promotion for you, right? Give them these classy reusable bags with your Brand Logo and include some of your welcome gift cards and your latest products. Then, offer these exclusive conference bags to the first 100-500 people who register, or make them available as a random-draw prize for attendees who complete the pre-event surveys. You are not only encouraging early registration, but you are also building a relationship with your visitors and could give them a good impression that you can provide them a high-quality products and services.

Quality Headphones

                Offering a quality headphone gift for your visitors with your corporate logo can help your exhibition stand to experience a boost. The question is, what kind of headphones are good for your event? Sometimes, it depends on your marketing budget and the type of event you are joining. Quality headphones are best suited for events that involves music and AV Industries, while lightweight earbuds are more appropriate for mid-sized business events. A Bluetooth headset is also an option that could add a touch of luxury to any event. Since quality earphones can be expensive as a giveaway, visitors would be very keen to have them, and this could be an opportunity for you to maximize your brand awareness. One of the ways to do this is by creating a social media game where you can ask your visitors to take selfies at your stand and ask them to post it with a specific hashtag on their social media accounts to win the prize. -I bet, you will be surprised by the outcome.


Branded Phone Accessories

                Promotional phone accessories are a smart way to keep your brand in the hands of your customers on a daily basis. We know that most people own a mobile phone.
