8 Useful Tradeshow Giveaways

Selecting promotional products to distribute at tradeshows can be a daunting task considering the multitude of products available. It’s hard to tell which ones will be the best for your buck, or a complete flop. You also have to consider logistics, like making sure that your giveaways are transportable and cost-effective. 

71.6% of attendees who received a promotional product at a tradeshow remembered the name of the company that gave them the product according to Georgia Southern University Study.

Because there are so many new products available, this list will serve as an update for the tradeshow giveaway blog I wrote last year. Here’s a list of what I consider to be the 8 useful tradeshow giveaways out there today.

1. Custom EOS Lip Balm

Custom Lip Balm

This custom lip balm will keep your brand present throughout the daily routine of your tradeshow attendees because it is an everyday essential. This simple yet useful giveaway also allows for a full-color imprint of your logo on the egg.

2. Promotional Smart Wallet

People bring their smartphones everywhere, so what’s more convenient than a wallet that sticks to the outside of any mobile device? These silicon smart wallets attach seamlessly to cell phones and can hold up to three credit cards. They are super easy to pack, transport, and display at the show.  

3. Branded USB Dual Car Chargers

Car Chargers

Custom USB dual car chargers are perfect tradeshow giveaways because nearly everyone has a use for them. Whether it’s for charging MP3s, iPods, or cell phones, I don’t know of anyone that doesn’t have one of these in their car. Packaging options include gift boxes or plastic wrap. 

4. Promotional Cup Holder Clip

Desk Cup Holder Clip

Coffee and tea beverages are a daily necessity for people around the world. This promotional cup holder is a unique space saver that clips right to your desk and serves as a holder for cups and mugs.

5. Personalized Tote Bags

7. Branded Hand Sanitizer Pens

I keep hand sanitizer just about everywhere! I have a bottle at my desk, in my car, and in the bathroom. These antibacterial hand sanitizer spray pens are extremely convenient due to their small size and attachable clip-on lanyard for transportability. 

8. Stylus Screen Cleaner Combo

Cell phone, computer, and tablet screens get smudged up with fingerprints throughout the day. This handy stylus with a built in screen cleaner can be used to wipe down dirty screens and to navigate your smartphone or tablet.
