Swag can be useful, and actually worth it to handout—here’s how…

It’s an experience which is familiar to all of us in the event’s industry—while attending a trade show or conference, we’re handed a knickknack by a smiling brand ambassador, emblazoned with the logo of the brand responsible for putting on the event or the booth you’re standing in front of.
