Conference swag, or "stuff we all get," plays a significant role in engaging attendees and leaving a lasting impression of the event. Plus, who doesn’t like free stuff? However, not all swag is created equal, and attendees often end up with bags filled with items they won't use or appreciate. To help you make the most of your conference swag budget, we've compiled a list of the top 10 swag items that your conference attendees will actually want: 


Swag That You’ll Love to Wear

Offering comfortable and stylish apparel and accessories, such as t-shirts, hats,  jackets, or even fuzzy socks with your event's logo, can help foster a sense of belonging and create a lasting brand association every time someone grabs their new favorite jacket or hat. 


Sport-Tek Ladies Sport-Wick Fleece Full-Zip Jacket 


The sleek Sport-Tek Ladies Sport-Wick fleece zip-up jacket is perfect for days when there’s a slight chill in the air. Where most events give out pens or lanyards that can easily be misplaced, this branded jacket is a wardrobe staple that will last for years to come. 


Price Buster Cap


The price buster cap is sure to be a hit. It can be used on a trip to a ball game, a hike through the woods, or an outing on a sunny day. A comfortable, high-quality cap is sure to be a favorite no matter what the day’s plans are. Make sure to order them in every color. 


Fuzzy Socks With Woven Patch


Fuzzy socks are truly the gift that keeps on giving. When it’s cold, or you just don’t want to be walking around in bare feet, these fuzzy socks with a woven patch (for your logo) are sure to make anyone who wears them smile. Happy feet, happy life (hey, it’s close!). 


Swag That Keeps You Connected 

Staying connected makes life much simpler these days. Tech accessories like device chargers, phone stands, cable organizers, or Bluetooth speakers enhance attendees' digital experiences and make their lives easier beyond the conference.
