Preparing for an outdoor trade show may be intimidating, but in reality it is nothing to fear. In fact, they present a unique opportunity to participants. While all of the other organizations at outdoor trade shows are sure to be giving away the usual trade show giveaways, you can opt to give away more venue-appropriate items. These items that are location-specific will help draw in the crowds to your booth or station, giving you a real edge. Let's take a look at some of the most outstanding outdoor trade show giveaways.
If your next outdoor trade show will be during the warm summer months, you're going to love these promotional products. Distributing promotional battery fans is a smart way to garner attention for your brand or business at hot outdoor tradeshows. Recipients of these battery-powered fans will be so appreciative to receive the giveaways, and will probably even put them to use immediately! The cooling items will help soften the blow of the burning hot sun, all the while also promoting your company or organization. Picture it now: It's a 90 degree day, the sun is burning, and all of the other vendors are handing out pens, cups, and mugs. Those items won't do much good on a hot summer day! Your personal-sized, battery-operated fans, however, will be the talk of the trade show.
Another product that will do well at outdoor venues in the summer is promotional sunscreen. You can bet your bottom dollar that most attendees won't come prepared to handle the sun's harmful UV rays. So when they see your organization handing out custom sunscreen, they will be flocking to your booth. Your booth will be the busiest at the trade show. Better yet, everyone will instantly respect your brand for providing a product that is helping to preserve their health. It's a definite win-win!
However, not every outdoor trade show will take place in a warm climate or during the summer months. If you've got a trade show in New York in November, for example, sunblock and battery fans are not going to impress anyone. It's important to not only keep in mind your venue, but also possible weather conditions. For outdoor locations in cooler weather, you might want to hand out sweatshirts or hoodies. A favorite item that tends to do very well is this custom imprinted Hanes comfort blend hooded pullover sweatshirt. This product delivers a one-two punch; not only will recipients instantly associate your company with the well-known and highly respected Hanes brand, but they will also want to wear the product all day to stay warm.
So the next time you've got an outdoor trade show to attend, remember to purchase promotional products that will best suit the situation. Just take into consideration venue, weather conditions, and what your competition might bring to the table, and your booth is sure to be number one at the next outdoor trade show.
