Are you planning an event and want to promote your company and give away cool swag that attendees will hold on to? Have you sifted through hundreds of promotional items that can be imprinted with your company’s logo but don’t know where to start? First things first, you have to create a plan.

Here are some planning tricks to help you successfully select the right swag for your event:

  • Who is your audience?
