Event and Convention Planning

During my time here at T&N Promotions Plus, I’ve noticed most clients need help with their event planning needs.  Clients place orders for events such as conventions, parties, trade shows, and mixers. I’ve had the pleasure of working on orders for all four occasions and personally enjoy to assist with these projects. However, most people are unfamiliar on how to go about ordering promotional products. So, here is the comprehensive guide to follow when you’re ready to plan for your next event. Before I get into the meat of it all, here are a few things to note:

  1. Assess your deadlines – We want to make sure your promotional products come out perfectly – and that takes time. Make sure you give us time to produce the best product for you!
  2. Have your artwork handy – We wouldn’t want to have any delays on your order. Make sure you have vector art handy to get your order rolling right away.
  3. Don’t be afraid to ask for help – That’s why we’re here… to serve you. Let us assist you with a walk through or help you find the products that are perfect for your needs.

So, what’s next? First I want to talk a little bit about the products that T&N has to offer. Literally thousands of custom imprinted promotional products are available for your choosing. From apparel to novelty gifts, we got it all. A lot of the popular event items that I’ve seen however, are small giveaway items. Such popular items – that I would also recommend – are cellphone fans and wallets, mugs, pens, toiletrylighters and apparel.

Two Great Uses For Custom Reusable Grocery Bags

canvas tote bagCustom tote bags are promotional items that get your message a ton of mileage. They have a huge imprint space, and they get thousands of impressions – almost 9,000 for the average bag.
The bags are a great way of promoting your business.They are something that customer can get great use out of, and they look fabulous.

The biggest benefit, though, is that recipients now have a bag they can use over and over. They can use them for any number of things, and because the website is imprinted along with the logo, people know exactly where to find the shop. The bags are a useful gift for recipients and an excellent marketing tool
As society becomes more and more environmentally conscious, businesses are finding ways to align themselves with this growing trend and using custom reusable grocery bags for marketing efforts is one such popular way to do so. They can already be seen in many supermarkets, as replacements for paper and plastic bags. The latter two items had been mainstays at such businesses for many years, allowing shoppers to transport their goods home with ease.

There are many different custom reusable grocery bags available for purchase in a range of colors, styles and price points to fit any company’s budgets and needs. Most are made from non woven polypropylene, a recyclable fabric-like material that is made from fibers and many are additionally laminated or insulated to provide extra protection for perishable items. Some have special features too that include front pockets for extra storage, divided main compartments, and snap closures, and most fold down for convenient storage. When it comes to actually customizing them, screen printing is the most commonly used decoration technique. And because they provide such a large imprint area for customization, there is an opportunity for optimal advertising for purchasers with the potential to truly capture the attention of those who come in contact with users of the bags.When companies customize custom shopping totes with their name and logo or other design, they are not only creating a product to market their brand, but further, they are marketing the fact that their business is dedicated to promoting eco-friendly practices. As mentioned previously, society as a whole is trending towards more environmentally conscious attitudes, and the use of reusable items by a business can help consumers look more positively toward the organization and even help to gain more potential consumers who are particularly wary of the eco-status of the merchants with which they make transactions.
And while the totes are often used to promote grocery stores themselves, they can also be used as promotional merchandise by practically any company a part of any industry. They can be used as giveaways at trade shows, as gifts for consumers, and even as a creative way to package gifts for employees and goods for consumers. The advertising a company will receive from recipients’ future use of their bags will far outweigh the initial cost of purchasing them. After all, the term reusable is in their name – so one’s brand can continue to be advertised for years to come!

Three Tips For Selecting Custom Trade Show Giveaways

If you’re heading to a trade show, you need custom trade show giveaways. They’re a tangible, cost-effective way to get your name in front of your audience—the majority of which are decision makers.


More than 80% of tradeshow attendees have the authority to influence buying decisions, and more than 50% buy something as a result of attending the show, according to a study from Exhibit Surveys.

Naturally, promotional trade show giveaways are a must. They boost your company’s sales and shorten the sales cycle. You can’t afford not to use them. Your competitors certainly will be using them to woo customers and prospects. That’s just the nature of trade shows.

You don’t have to blend in with all the other booths, though. You can stand out and make your company memorable with promotional items.

Follow these three tips when choosing trade show giveaways, and set your company apart at your next event:
Choose giveaways that make sense for your brand.


There are thousands and thousands of promotional products on the market, but that doesn’t mean they’re all a great fit for your brand. To maximize the effectiveness of your trade show giveaways, always opt for products that tie in with your brand. People need to make an immediate connection with your company and the giveaway you’ve just placed in their hands. For example, if you’re in the healthcare industry, logo hand sanitizer makes more sense than a custom lighter. If you’re in the food business, a promotional cooler bag is a better choice than a custom dog leash. Keep your promo items relevant to your brand.


2. Make them appealing.

People flock to promotional items that are attractive, trendy and visually appealing. If they’ve never seen it before and it looks interesting, they’ll want to check it out. Plus, it shines a positive light on your brand when your logo is imprinted on high-quality, well-designed promotional products. Select trade show giveaways that have a natural appeal to your audience, and you’ll create a buzz around your booth.


3. Opt for promo items with a purpose.

Novelty products are fun, but if you want your logo to stick around for the long haul, your trade show giveaways should serve a real purpose for your audience. If attendees see a value in your giveaway, they’ll hold onto it. If not, it will likely end up in the trash; people can only schlep so much stuff at a tradeshow. Make sure your giveaways are useful and fill a universal need, such as custom bags or logo drinkware. Everyone has a need for these items, which makes them more likely to be used.


Promo know-how tip:

Don’t forget about your booth staff—you can maximize your trade show presence by dressing your trade show team in custom shirts or hats.

Develop A Promotional Plan with T&N Promotions Plus

Develop A Promotional PlanReady to plan your next promotion?  Develop A Promotional Plan with T&N Promotions Plus . You and your consultant will discuss these seven important elements to help you plan the best promotion for reaching your objective:

1. Define a specific objective.

Whether the goal is to increase traffic at a tradeshow exhibit or to boost sales with current clients, the first step in any campaign is to clarify the purpose of the program.

2. Determine a workable distribution plan to a targeted audience.

Distribution of a promotional product is as important as the item itself. Research shows that a carefully executed distribution plan significantly increases the effectiveness of promotional products. For example, a pre-show mailing to a select audience delivers more tradeshow traffic and qualified leads than simply distributing items to passersby at the show.

3. Create a central theme.

Linking a recognizable logo and color to all aspects of a campaign, from promotional products to sales sheets to product packaging, helps create an instantly recognizable image.

4. Develop a message to support the theme.

Supporting a campaign’s theme with a message helps to solidify a company’s name, service or products in the target audience’s mind. For instance, to promote its services to small businesses, a bank created the theme “Are you tired of being treated like a small fish?” and sent fish-related products to its prospects along with promotional literature.

5. Select a promotional product that bears a natural relationship to your profession or communications theme.

A good example is a company that developed a magic motif for its conference at Disney World. Attendees received magic-related products to tie in with the theme “Experience the magic at Disney®.”

6. Don’t pick an item based solely on uniqueness, price or perceived value.

Don’t fall prey to the latest trends or fads. The most effective promotional products are used in a cohesive, well-planned campaign.

7. Use a qualified promotional products consultant.

A good promotional products consultant will help you answer all of these questions as well as offer a variety of value-added services, including unique product ideas, creative distribution solutions and insight on the different imprinting methods just to name a few
