Make your booth the star of the show with exciting promotional products.

Tradeshows. Hustle and bustle. Hundreds, maybe thousands of people wandering the aisles. Dozens of booths competing for attention. How do you stand out? How do you draw in the crowd and keep their attention? One of the best ways is by using exciting promotional products to make a big impression.

Think about it: everyone is giving away something. Every person leaving the conference hall will walk out with a bag full of pens, mints and t-shirts. And those are fine promotional products. They get a lot of use and generate tons of brand impressions. But as predictable and common tradeshow giveaways, they don’t generate a ton of buzz at the show itself.

To stand out and draw people into your booth, you need a product that will cause excitement. Something that will make people ask “where did you get that? And more importantly, where can I get one for myself?”

Here are some unexpected ideas for exciting promotional products.
