Think about it, state fairs offer an extraordinary opportunity to spread your company name & logo among the public. While Texas & Minnesota may win 1st place for high attendance, state fairs all around the country attract people in droves. And these attendees are ready for a good time.
Why not consider capitalizing on the throngs of fair-goers with a fun promotional imprinted product showing off your logo to everyone around?
With most state fairs, you should expect healthy attendance numbers. Something to consider is distributing welcome gifts to the first 1,000 attendees as they enter the fairgrounds or visit your booth. If you go with a t-shirt, draw-string backpack or a visor you’ll have enough room to display your logo along with the state fair’s logo or design. You’ve now turned your customized promotional wearable into a souvenir that will be worn over & over.
Another item to consider is a branded water bottle. When you’re at the fair, the last thing you want to do is lug around a water bottle–especially if it’s empty; yet you hate to throw it away because sooner or later you’ll be thirsty again. Also you need to stay hydrated if it’s hot.
Work with your other vendors, if you’re set up next to a food stand or another product stand – split the cost of booth necessities. Food vendors can assist in the costs to purchase cups by putting their logo or name on them.
You may partner up to provide customized hand sanitizers for customers. If you ever needed this product, it’s at the state fair. Your hands will always feel grubby & chances are soap & water are a very long walk away. Also think of the little ones at the petting zoo then all of a sudden they want something to eat. Do you think they’ll want to stand in line to wash their hands? This handy item is compact & will fit easily in a pocket or purse. It’s lightly scented & will be the life-saver of the day.
Product vendors can offer visitors personalized fans, which will be convenient if the weather gets too hot, and bug repellent simply makes sense at an outdoor event.
Fun After Dark
As the night sky begins to set in, make things fun for families by providing accessories for the evening. Try finding a youth organization like a 4-H club to split costs and give away complimentary mini flashlights, which always come in handy, both at the fair and thereafter.
