35 Creative Event Giveaway Ideas + Swag Sources

Finding the right event giveaway swag for your event isn’t always easy. You don’t want it to be cliche or boring. You want it to be memorable. Like any marketing effort, you’ll want to consider your target audience and what type of giveaway would be most interesting and relevant. To maximize brand impressions, select items that attendees will use for a long time, and even better, use publicly! Other considerations may include the time of year and type of event.

With the right gift, attendees will have a lasting positive impression of your brand long after the event concludes. For that reason, you’ll want to select something that is actually useful so it’s not just tossed out! For best impact, giveaways should have your logo or other clear branding elements.
