We’re past the holidays, past the dawn of a new year, and spring is just around the corner.
In many ways, the unofficial herald of the coming of spring is the start of home and garden show season. First, there’s the 2017 BIAWC Home and Garden Show March 3 to 5 at the Northwest Washington Fairgrounds in Lynden. The 2017 SICBA Home Show follows shortly after at the Skagit County Fairgrounds in Mount Vernon. That show is scheduled for March 24 to 26.
If your company plans on having a booth at either of these shows, well, then this is the article for you! LaserPoint Awards & Promotional Solutions has everything you need to market your business at an event this spring.
For starters, we can help make sure your employees look snazzy in coordinated embroidered shirts. Not only will these make a great impression at the home show, but they can be used all year long to provide a cohesive look at your store or for your employees on service calls.
We also have a number of promotional tools and hardware items that you can use to keep your company name fresh in customers’ minds all year long.
This garden tool pack, this BBQ tool set and this wall thermometer would make the perfect giveaway items for your booth. Giveaways have the benefit of attracting people to your booth for a big-ticket item, and if you have a newsletter or other mailing list, you can use the giveaway to encourage people to sign up. Either way, giveaways are an important win both for the customer and for you.
One popular multifunction tool is completely brandable, which is great for you, and completely useful, which is great for your customers. And since they’ll keep it on their key ring all year long, well, that’s great for you, too! It comes with a flashlight, bottle opener and a set of useful tools to help in almost any situation.
This cute little umbrella rain gauge is so useful, customers will keep it in their yards all year. Serious gardeners like to know how much rain their yards are getting so they can adjust plants and soil accordingly. And hobbyists enjoy charting the rain and comparing to the official weather reports.
Our gardens aren’t the only things growing this time of year! Another affordable promotional item to have at your event booth is this child growth chart, which children can color in as they grow. Your customers will get years of use out of this handy item, and your business name will be right their in their home all the while!
Finally, don’t forget that LaserPoint can also help with getting your booth set up and looking great. We have retractable banners of all kinds; these are excellent ways to attract customers’ attention and entice them to stop at your booth.
