Otherwise known as Souvenirs, Wearables, and Gifts. Promotional items. Marketing tools. There may be different names to call them but in the end, everyone loves a unique keepsake from a great event.
Back when I was knee-deep in the real estate field, I attended my fair share of conventions. The highlight for me was receiving the variety of promotional items given away by the vendors. Not only did I love all the SWAG, the items did serve a purpose. Meeting so many people in a small period of time, it was often difficult to remember names. Having a tangible item with the company’s name and contact information was invaluable.
Writers conference attendees face similar issues. After meeting so many great authors and peers, it’s hard for them to remember all the great books they intended to purchase. Wouldn’t it be great to send them home with a reminder of your new book or website?
Some popular items are bookmarks, pens, highlighters, key lights, hats, screen cleaners, and zipper pulls.
