Upon entering the venue, make sure to give your customers some kind of protection with medical-grade face masks or a fabric one with filter.

5. Tool Kits

We rarely see companies giving away promotional tool kits during trade shows as they often give away pens, T-shirts, and bags. But tool kits are a great way to stand out from the rest. The novelty of the giveaway item allows your brand to stick. One of our favorite tool kits would be this collection of pocket-sized army tools in various colored packaging. It is small enough to fit in your pocket or emergency bag. Another favorite of ours is this collection of building tools in bespoke shape containers.

Tote bags, especially the ones that are made from sustainable materials rank high on the list of most effective trade show promotional products. They can be used to carry other products as the visitor walks around the venue. What is great about tote bags is that they can be made in a wide variety of styles depending on your target market and purpose. For instance, trade show managers may opt for stylish tote bags made in canvas with hip prints for the younger market. Large square bags with lining and pockets for shopping and hauling stuff, a utilitarian design ideal for all-around use.
