Our Favorite Trade Show Promotional Items for 2017

By Proforma Durkee on May 25, 2017

It’s tradeshow season again, and whether it’s a stress ball or a ballpoint pen, visitors to your booth will expect to receive some kind of promotional item as a freebie. And we might not talk about it openly, but there’s definitely competition to have the unique gift or gadget that has all the attendees asking “Where to I get one of those?”

While there is no holy grail of promotional items bound to have the same impact for all brands, here are some of our top recommendations for trade show giveaways (for all budgets):

Javalina Pens

We would be remiss if we didn’t include pens on the this list. Sure, every company there is going to have a branded pen, and that means your company, too. So for pens, we recommend these smooth-writing Javalinas. They are a high-value option for the price and come in a gazillion colors.

Antibacterial Hand Sanitizer Sprayer

Trade shows and conferences mean travel, eating on the go, and shaking a lot of hands. What more thoughtful and useful gift than hand sanitizer? Help attendees stay healthy on the road with this popular option.

Tritan16 Tumbler

These tumblers are a lower cost alternative to the double-insulated tumblers dominating the market. They offer the same flexibility for branding and high quality and a more affordable price tag. (We LOVE finding this type of value for you!)

It’s shatter-resistant, dishwasher and freezer safe and you can even opt for the lid and straw – making it even more of a standout piece amongst the many other standard trade show giveaways.


SPF 15 Lip Balm

If budget is a big concern for you, but you still want to ensure that your promotional items are high-quality and usable, then this SPF 15 Lip Balm is a great option. A hydrating lip balm made with aloe vera and vitamin E, this is another great way to stay at the fore of customers’ minds whether it’s hot or cold outside of the conference center.


Alligator Clip

There are tons of uses for these clips. From chip savers to pinning notes to the refrigerator or holding a favorite photos from your cube. These are easy, inexpensive, and don’t take up much storage space in the booth.
