Summer has gone way too quick for us here at EMC. Thinking the same? While the sun may have gone into hiding for a while and the early darker nights are creeping in with the chill, there are also many benefits within business of the arrival of Autumn, especially when it comes to exhibitions.
Did you know that as many as 90% of exhibitors give away something at some point during their exhibition time? As seasons change, so should your choice of promotional gifts. People want a product that they will use again and will be of practical use, and so do you as a business. After all, you want them to think of your company and your brand at any possible point; from them picking up their brolly to walking the dog or wrapping up in a warm jumper for an autumn walk. You never know when they may need your products and services.
So what kind of things will be attracting potential customers this season and how can these products get everyone around your exhibition stand?
A branded promotional travel mug is bound to bring the crowds to your exhibition stand. If you want any promotional gift to take away from an event in the Autumn, it must be a mug! There is nothing more warming and cosy than a steaming cup of tea on a chilly day.
Promotional mugs and travel mugs at EMC are as low cost as £1.25! But while they are inexpensive to the business buyer, to the receiver they have a much higher perceived value, and they serve as persistent reinforcer of you Brand identity, as they are used daily to hold hot chocolate, tea or coffee.
Unlike many other promotional gifts, a travel mug or ceramic mug has a long usability factor. The travel mug can go from home to work and back again whereas the promotional mug can stay cosy in the cupboard at the office until a brew is needed and everyone will see your business logo! Taking promotional mugs with you to your next exhibition is sure to bring back results. After all, how many times a day do you have a mug of coffee or tea?
We all know our wardrobes make a huge shift in style when Autumn comes around. The flip-flops and sun hats are replaced by fleeces, jumpers and woolly hats! The UK is unpredictable at the best of times; we never know what the weather is going to delight us with which is why choosing Autumn promotional clothing is a super choice for your exhibition stand gifts.
EMC supply everything from sweatshirts to fleeces, jackets and ponchos to hats and even hi-vis jackets! These are perhaps one of the most practical items for someone to take away from an exhibition, as they will truly come in handy in the chilly weather. Promotional clothing items make great gifts and certainly put your brand in front of people while keeping someone nice and toasty! Wearing your logo increases top-of-mind and increases the likelihood that they will choose your business when they need your services.
Who would walk away from a free hat or jacket if they stumbled upon your exhibition stand?
Calendars and Diaries
While we all don’t want to think about it, the reality is that Christmas is just around the corner, and so is the New Year! 2018 will be here before you know it. So, what does that mean for businesses, business owners and in fact every employee? They will need a new calendar and diary!
By involving these products in your array of promotional gifts at your exhibition, you will no doubt have everyone picking one up. One factor about promotional diaries and calendars which makes them super useful to you and the receiver is that they will use it all year round! Very few other promotional gifts have such a long shelf life, making them the perfect gift for clients or at exhibitions.
Personal Care Items
As the weather gets worse, everyone needs to give themselves a little added TLC- whether this is keeping your lips and face moisturised or simply wrapping up and keeping yourself warm.
This is why if you are attending an exhibition this season you should be choosing some promotional personal care items in your array of gifts and giveaways. EMC supply an array of these promotional gifts, ranging from a lip balm and mints in a jar set, or branded heat packs and hand warmers. These are not only extremely useful for the person receiving this promotional gift, but they are great for you as a business. Every time they feel their lips getting dry or they are feeling the Autumn chill and reach for their hand warmer, it’s your business and brand they see!
There are so many promotional gifts perfect for this season, and these are just to name a few. It is important to consider what promotional gifts will be useful for the receiver at the time of year, so be sure to always keep that in mind when purchasing yours.
