Hello,

Me again, I’m asking for lots of help this week!

I have an awards ceremony that we as a company are sponsoring. My team has been tasked with finding ‘gifts’ for the tables, we are the only company doing this so we need something nice.

The age old problem with promotional products is the fine line between something people would want and will use and something that is just tacky and would get thrown away.

Has anyone had any good ideas for promotional products at their events?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Melissa, thanks for posting - we’re here to help. I would focus on your target audience - what would they value? What would make their life easier or add value to their time with you/at the event ? What will best reflect your brand? What will people remember/still be talking about at the next awards event?

Hey @Mel-T - hopefully we can help!

We’ve built www.printkick.com for this specifically.

You could check out the printed goody bags section, we find travel mugs always go down well, along with power banks or printed sweets.

Everything is priced instantly, and we have awesome discounts as we’ve just launched the site.

Let me know if you need any help or some other recommendations! :slight_smile: and I hope your event goes well!

At one event I recieved a promotional cardboard mobile phone stand. Very useful and is still used today http://www.gdock.co.uk/

Using a print on demand service you could have the chosen gifts personalised with guests’ names and then use them as place holders. Mugs would work great for this or tins of sweets. People love getting things with their names on!

The company my husband works for has just had some promotional goods printed for an exhibition and I was really impressed with this one. It’s a screen cleaner atomiser with cloth on the side. Genuinely useful… although one guy complained he’d mistook it for breath spray and put it in his mouth ha ha!

The most common and useful in any office is the pen.
Office workers use pen everyday.
If you have a good budget a USB stick is also a good idea.
The promotional items also depends in the kind of guest have.

It’s funny that this came up today, as I was talking about the exact same thing with my business partner yesterday evening. We market to event professionals, and we were wondering what items they would find useful.

As mentioned above, a pen is a good idea, but I thought a pen with a flashlight/torch on it would be a good “tool” for those who work in nightclubs/discos/dance lounges (where it gets dark and trouble could arise).

But yes, it really does depend on the target market.
