Why use special commemorative glass for special occasions?

The reasons that marketing campaigns use commemorative items are plentiful:

  • Adds value to the total offering –  As seen in this example the special match package includes tangible and intangible aspects. The glass is a gift giveaway item that comes free with the package deal. In order to retain value from customers, the offering needs to contain perceived value for the customer. The promotional glass is a low cost product that when branded and made into a commemorative glass turns into a high end gift.
  • Collectible merchandise –  Commemorative items make highly collectible items due to their uniqueness and design. Their sentimental and monetary value increases over time.
  • Incentive product –  When a commemorative item is offered as apart of a package it makes it more likely that the customer will purchase the package.
  • A way of celebration –  As a mark of respect items are branded in unique ways to commemorate special occasions.
  • Joint promoting –  As seen in the glass example the club merchandise glass is also branded with the Budweiser logo. Special events can allow multiple brands to work with each other to joint  promote.
