Brand Boosting Swag Bags
for Conferences & Trade Shows

Christmas & Holiday Gifts<br>for Clients by Budget

Whether you're setting up a conference to exchange information with guests, planning a banquet to reward employee achievement, or attending a trade show to show off your products and services, it's important to leave a positive first impression. One of the best ways to do that is with imprinted swag bags customized with your logo or message and perfectly targeted to your audience.

There is one caveat, though: You want to make sure your swag bags don't end up in the garbage. If you've ever been part of a conference or trade show, you know how depressing it is to see trashcans filled with branded bags and promotional items.

Luckily, by putting a little thought into your convention swag bag ideas, you can provide functional and stylish bags filled with useful gifts that recipients will want to keep. Read on for great ideas and get ready to connect!

The recent pandemic has shown companies the benefits of virtual conferences, providing them with more opportunities to reach new customers and clients who might not traditionally attend an in-person event. Of course, that doesn't mean they're ignoring the power of branded supplies. The best virtual conference swag bags incorporate supplies that attendees can use to engage in the event.

Send out the Virtual Meeting Kit including items like earbuds and a silver lining journal for taking notes during the conference or the Snack & Learn Meeting in a Box filled with tasty treats to be enjoyed during the presentation.
