When it comes to attending conferences, it’s not just the knowledge that you get to walk away with. You get to have some pretty special keepsakes that are both functional and eye-catching. Today, we wanted to talk about some types of keepsakes that you get to keep when you visit conferences!
We feel this is important because the reward center of the brain should never be underestimated. Not only would there be a lot of things to learn from going to conferences—especially technological ones—but you get to have more than just knowledge to remember the event by.
Here are some of the keepsakes that you get to have if you are lucky enough to attend a technology conference:
This is, by far, one of the more common keepsakes that you get to keep with you after your time at a conference. Usually, apparel is easy to produce and easy to distribute. They can come in the forms of shirts, caps, wristbands, socks, and a plethora of other things that you can wear. It will normally have the name of the conference and the date.
Or it could even have the brand name of the booth or the company that handed them out. They’re great because you can add them to your comfy home shirts and are usually pretty durable.
Who says that tech conferences are stingy with the accessories that they promote? If you’re a big fan of tech conferences you will know for a fact that tech companies like to give away something that can help people remember them fondly. They do this by giving away little accessories which come in handy.
One of our favorite forms of accessories is little USBs and little LED flashlights. These come in handy when you least expect it and they’re small enough that you can keep them on your person wherever you go.
Technology conferences are always quite generous when it comes to their literature. They like to share their knowledge through promotional literature. They could be little pamphlets or can be full blown booklets that help you better understand their piece of technology and how you can make use of it to the fullest.
This is our particular favorite! No conference is complete without a raffle! The prizes can vary but usually it is a piece of new technology like the latest phone release, latest computer, or it could even be an all expenses paid stay at a notable hotel or resort.
In the end, there are a lot of things—not just the physical keepsakes—that you get to keep that can remind you of your trip. You get to meet people who share the same interests and even get to rub elbows with some of the brightest minds in the industry that can help you realize your goals. Have you ever been to a tech conference? What sort of keepsakes did you get to bring away with you after it was done?
