    Trade shows are a great way to get noticed so make the effect last with a custom reusable trade show bag


    Spread Your Marketing Message Beyond the Trade Show Floor with Custom Promotional Tradeshow Bags

    Trade shows are a great time to get your brand in front of existing clients and to get noticed by potential clients. Caron Beesley, a small business owner, writer, and marketing communications consultant who works with the team to promote essential government resources that help entrepreneurs and small business owners start-up, grow and succeed says, "Trade shows are big business. According to the Center for Exhibition Industry Research, more than 14,000 are held annually in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, and no doubt some of them fit nicely with your small business marketing strategy."

    Still, trade shows can also be an overwhelming experience for those attending since they’re visiting lots of booths and being bombarded with information at every turn. You need to make a lasting marketing impact that will stay with the folks who visit your booth long after they leave the show, and a custom promotional trade show bag is a great way to do this.

    Give Your Clients and Prospects What They Need to Market Your Brand Far and Wide for Years to Come

    There is a lot of paraphernalia given out at trade shows – think about all of the pamphlets, catalogs, samples, business cards and more, so a bag makes an ideal trade show takeaway to hold the gear your clients pick up. Rieva Lesonsky, author of several books on entrepreneurship, editorial director of Entrepreneur magazine for over two decades and CEO and President of GrowBiz Media as well as, says that "tote bags are always huge hits at trade shows" to effectively market your business.

    All of your competitor’s items will go into your custom branded bag, so your marketing message is put on display and your clients will appreciate the helping hand you’ve lent them as they walk the show floor.  Then once they head home, if you have designed a great trade show bag, they will continue to use the bag and market your message for years to come.
