Swag Bags

As a vendor you have an opportunity to put a coupon or sample in our swag bags (100). We like to have coupons and samples of products for the moms to try.  We promote this as one of the benefits of attending our show-they get swag bags with useful stuff inside.

This is a great opportunity for you to market you business to a captivating audience.  Be creative!  Business cards and paper flyers simply get thrown away.  Therefore, we ask that you put something unique and of value (such as a coupon, deep discount, or a sample) in the swag bag so that your efforts (and marketing dollars) are not wasted!
