10 Trending Tech Giveaways For Corporate Events & Where To Get Them {Infographic}

We are living in a Digital Age. Technology is applied in almost all aspects of human interaction and it is a defining characteristic of human activity.

The events industry has been significantly revolutionized by technology. Technology is changing not only the way we plan events but also how they are experienced. Gone are the days of passive attendees. Participant engagement is the target.

The prominence of technology and the effects of gifting often unite in the effort to market and engage.

In my last post, “Tips for Giving Event Swag and the Blunders to Avoid”, I promised to continue with some blow-your-mind Technology gifts inspired by this giving season.

Here are 10 trending tech giveaway ideas for corporate events and tradeshows. Included are 34 specific tech promo products I found particularly interesting and innovative, and where to get them. Bonus {INFOGRAPHIC} Included below.

Virtual Reality Viewers

Virtual Reality is all the rage right now and enthusiastically embraced by the event industry. Below offers an option for all budgets and each can be branded.

Tech Organizers

I love the idea giving an organizer for all the tech gadgets we seem to accumulate these days. Personalizing them with the recipient’s initials or a company logo takes it to the next level. The options below really stood out.

Not sure about you, but I can never have enough USB ports. I was drawn to the usefulness of this gift and of course the branding opportunities.

Smart Wallets

Smart wallets are a low budget option that are great for tradeshows. I especially liked the upgraded ones with the finger strap and the pocket/stand.

Wireless Headphones

Wireless headphones are a trending gift with some great branding opportunities. Noise-canceling headphones are a luxury for travelers (and parents). Branding the case would be an excellent gift. The earbuds also caught my eye with its branding possibilities and functionality.

Wireless Photo Printers

This is one of my favorite gifts. It can be (literally) carried throughout a conference or tradeshow in some very creative and engaging ways. Worried your attendees’ phones may not be compatible? Fear not. The Polaroid POP is a camera & printer in one and comes in various colors. If branding is the key, consider giving a case with your logo on it.

Smart Speakers

I received one of these as a gift when I attended a conference. Not something I needed or probably would have bought for myself, which added to the awesomeness of the gift. It is now a permanent fixture in my home that brings entertainment and enjoyment to my family.  This is a gift that leaves an impact.

  1. Alexa Echo Devices: Dot, Echo, Echo Plus, Echo Spot, Echo Show: Click Here For Vendor
  2. Google Home Devices: the Mini & the Home: Click Here For Vendor

USB Flash Drives

Now this is not as flashy (like what I did there?) as some of the other options, but I thought the below variations were worth noting. Great size and price for tradeshow giveaways and a solid option for conferences looking to go Green without handout materials.

  1. Customized USB business card flash drives: Click Here For Vendor
  2. USB Pen Combo: Click Here For Vendor
