I love attending blog events for many reasons. First, I get to meet and mingle with fellow bloggers, most of whom are moms like me. Second, blog events are good sources of information; some offer helpful tips on parenting, health, beauty, etc. which are quite enlightening. Third, they usually hire celebrities or TV personalities as hosts, which makes attending blog events more fun and exciting. Blog events usually offer free breakfast, lunch, snacks or dinner to attendees, too. Last but not the least, they usually give away freebies. Most of these giveaways are their own products and some are promotional items.
Some promotional items I received in the past for attending blog events were tote bags, umbrellas, raincoats, wet tissues, memo pads, caps, and ballpens. I also received a personalized medical scrub suit from a recent pharmaceutical plant tour I’ve participated in recently. I sure would love to bring home a custom tshirt, sports tshirts, or Death by T-Shirt from these blog events one day.
Now, this leaves me wondering how much money the people behind these blog events are spending for their promotional items. I’m sure they’re spending a lot, and for that, they should hire a trusted company to do their promotional items.
