Trade Shows

Want to be a hero at a trade show? Give out stuffed animals from Authentic Plush. Mom and Dad are traveling, and they have to have something to take home to the loved ones at home. Mostly, the airport gift shop gets the business (been there, done that). Why not hand out something you'll be thanked for (generally, with words like "You're a life saver"). Put your logo, along with copy such as "We buck the competition" on a horse, and your message will stay around for years.

We all know that trade show cost go up every year. Sometimes, adding just a small table can cost as much as a full size, but where do you put it? Peerless Umbrellas has a great folding table that is easy to store, strong enough to hold catalogs, and the right height to function as a work table. It comes with a carrying case, and is very lightweight, but extremely dururable.

Offer something they need and want, obviously. Trade show bags are a must, and the Ashland from Windy City is stylish, durable, and most important for a hand out, economical.
