When you think of the month of November, what comes to mind? For many, it’s turkey dinners, Sunday football and the first signs of winter. With all of the holiday anticipation in the air, you can use this time to shake up your trade show merchandise. Plus, November is a time to give thanks, so show your customers how much you appreciate them.
Here are four ways that you can use the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday to spruce up your trade show merchandise – and have people saying thanks to you!
Help Out with Thanksgiving Dinner
If you’ve cooked a full meal before, you know how difficult it is to coordinate your dishes. Now, multiply that by 10 or 20 people and add in a few extra dishes. Cooking Thanksgiving dinner takes great skill!
Let trade show attendees know that you care about them by helping out in the kitchen. Of course, we don’t mean this literally, as we know you have your own turkey dinner to prepare. But, you can lend a helping hand by giving out some of these items:
-Turkey stress reliever
-Apron with pockets
Make Cleaning Up a Breeze
No matter how delicious dinner is, cleaning up is a buzzkill. Thankfully, we have modern dishwashers to fall back on. Consider other products that make putting away leftovers easier, such as food storage containers, brush and dustpan bundles and microfiber cloths. When a person sees your name on the food storage, they’ll be grateful that you anticipated their needs.
Keep the Kids Entertained
Thanksgiving is a time for family – so you can’t leave the children uninvited! While most families love getting all the cousins together, it can also result in a lot of chaos. Think ahead by handing out a fun game or activity that can be used for the kids on Thanksgiving day. Your customers will be grateful.
Here are a few ideas for kid-friendly trade show giveaways:
-Pre-packaged art sets
-Coloring sheets and crayons
Watch Football in Style
Pretty much everyone loves having football on the TV on Thanksgiving. You can hand out football-related merchandise, but a better idea is to consider how you can enhance the viewing experience. Mini sound bars, wireless speakers and rope lighting all make great accessories. If you prefer to cater to a traveling audience, consider charging keychains, portable speakers or power banks instead. Some families spend more time on the road for Thanksgiving than they do in a home.
Show your audience that you are grateful for their business with one of our suggestions above. Not only will they feel positively toward your brand but also end up thanking YOU!
