With Canada planning to ban plastic straws, cutlery and bags as early as 2021, sharing reusable items is a sure way to draw a crowd.

A Telescopic Stainless Straw in Carabiner Case or Reusable Silicone Straw in Keychain Case are not only eye-catching, but also convenient to carry—that makes them ideal giveaways for the trade show floor. A compact Clip & Take Cutlery Set may also draw eyes (and traffic) to your booth.


Charge up interest in your booth

When you offer them a charge, your table will stand out. More and more devices are Qi®-enabled, making Saturn Wireless Charging Pads extremely popular. Choose a universal Tag Along Duo Charging Cable with USB Type-C or a Two Tone Accent Power Bank to boost their device’s battery.


Catch a glance with co-branding

Co-branded giveaways are an ideal way to pull traffic to your table. When people see your company name next to a top-quality brand, they will associate your products and services with excellence.

For instance, every time your customers use their new Igloo® Avalanche Lunch Cooler or wear their Champion® Premium Classic T-Shirt, they’ll be reminded of the superior products, services and care they receive from your company.


Try some toys

Put some toys on your table to draw in kids at heart. Whether people pick them up to share with their children or keep for themselves, flashing lights, noise and fun will provide a smile and a chance to connect.

A Light-Up Yo-Yo, an adorable toy Hoot Owl or a Mini Memory Game will encourage people passing by to stop, play and chat for a few minutes.


Drive traffic with high-end prizes

Games and raffles that offer cool high-end prizes drive traffic in multiple ways, as people stop to check out the game or pause to peruse the prize. A co-branded The North Face® Thermoball Trekker Jacket, a High Sierra® Wheeled Duffel Bag or a Moleskine® Smart Writing Set are some of the best trade show giveaways to grab the attention of passersby and convince them to play or offer their contact information.


It starts with a look

The best trade show giveaways are the ones that pull people to your booth. Displaying the perfect eye-catching item at your table will help keep a steady stream of viewers coming to call.
