Booth Babes Don't Work

Do you ever feel pretty sure about something but just lack proof? This great article on TechCrunch just confirmed what I've always worked off of….that Booth Babes Don't Work - but we know what to do!


Sunshine Act Eases Medical Giveaways

The Sunshine Act now regulates a wide range of topics from food to expert speakers and requires tracking by companies transferring value to caregivers. But it's great news for the promotional giveaway portion of our industry!


There's nothing like a committed relationship

Half our business comes through industry partners such as exhibit houses and event managers. To show them more love we have formalized the Gold Key Partner Program, which unlocks exclusive benefits and 10% off.


We LOVE Personal Mail Campaigns

What better way to stand out from your competition but a surprise marketing piece that shows up on your client's desk…with their name on it! Our key clients were delighted by the classy business card holders we sent as Valentine's Day gifts to thank them for their business in 2011.


We teamed up, you got nice gifts free!

Ten years ago, Marlys Arnold wrote 'Build a Better Trade Show Image' and to celebrate the anniversary we teamed up with her to give the clients who signed-up nice personalized gifts for free!
