Direct interaction at events such as trade shows is crucial for cultivating connections and enhancing brand loyalty. Yet, distinguishing oneself amid fierce competition at these venues can be challenging. The solution lies in the strategic use of event printing, transforming standard conferences or trade shows into exceptional opportunities for audience engagement. This guide will address refining your collateral materials to make a memorable impact.

Innovative Brochure Designs

The era of generic pamphlets that blend into the background amidst a sea of forgettable event materials is firmly in the past. Innovative unique folding techniques, creative use of die-cutting, and the incorporation of engaging informative content can elevate a simple brochure from mere informational material to a sought-after collector's item.

Envision the allure of brochures that offer an element of surprise and delight, captivating the audience's attention in an instant. Or consider brochures with cleverly designed sliding sections, which gradually reveal additional layers of information, engaging the user in an interactive experience. These advancements in brochure design not only enhance the aesthetic appeal but also significantly increase the likelihood of the material being retained and remembered by the recipient.

Sell Sheets

Similar to brochures but typically more concise, sell sheets can be handed out to attract attention to specific services or products. Sell sheets, also known as product sheets or sales sheets, are concise, single-page documents used in print marketing to highlight the key features, benefits, and specifications of a product or service. They are designed to quickly grab attention and provide essential information for prospective customers.

Branded Promotional Giveaways

Branded giveaways with your logo can serve as useful and memorable promotional items. Popular items include pens, notepads, USB drives, stress balls, and other small giveaways. Check with your Premier rep for details on give-away items that will help you stand out.

Event-specific Branded Notepads

In an era dominated by screens and digital interfaces, the nostalgic charm of pen and paper offers a uniquely intimate and personal experience. The tactile sensation of writing on a notepad stands out as a memorable anomaly. To capitalize on this, consider offering branded notepads that serve as practical tools for taking notes and as tangible ongoing reminders of the event.

Presentation Folders

Classic, timeless, presentation folders with your logo are a subtle, sophisticated way to enforce your brand. These can hold various printed materials and provide a professional presentation when handing out information to prospects. Add special coatings, embossing, or foil stamping to create an effect you can both see and feel. Choose from a variety of paper stocks. There can be optional business card slits on pockets and all pockets are glued.

Case Studies

Case studies provide a comprehensive, in-depth understanding of specific instances, phenomena, or problems. They are one of the best methods for communicating the effectiveness of your product or service to potential and current customers. They help you share success stories relatable to prospects and customers based on their pain points, experiences, and overall needs. They detail the solutions you provided and how your company worked to achieve client goals. This provides validation of your services and proof of concept for any prospective customers considering business with your company. 

White Papers

White papers establish your organization as an authority in its field. They showcase your expertise, knowledge, and thought leadership, enhancing your credibility among current and prospective customers. This information builds trust by positioning your business as a thought leader in your industry. White papers can be invaluable as sales collateral. They provide persuasive evidence and data-backed assertions to convince potential customers of the value of your offerings. 

Branded Banners and BackdropsBooth banner image-1

Make your presence at trade shows unforgettable with striking visuals that do more than just grab attention; they create a photogenic ambiance that attendees will want to share. These banners are the first glimpse into what your event represents, setting the tone for what's to come. It's crucial to design them in a way that captures the essence of your brand, communicates your message with clarity, and stands out in a sea of mundane banners that often go unnoticed.

By ensuring your banners are visually captivating and uniquely different, you provide a memorable first impression that resonates with your audience and distinguishes your event from the rest. Choose pop-up banners in floor or tabletop sizes.

Augmented Reality Experiences

Integrate digital elements into the physical world through augmented reality (AR) experiences. By printing unique markers on materials such as banners, posters, or brochures, you can create an interactive layer that comes to life when scanned with a smartphone app. This virtual overlay can display personalized messages, exclusive content, or even 3D animations, transforming a standard informational piece into an engaging, memorable experience.

Incorporating AR not only adds a futuristic, high-tech appeal to your event or marketing material but also significantly boosts interactivity and the novelty factor, making it more likely for your audience to engage with and remember your message. This innovative approach bridges the gap between digital and physical spaces, offering an immersive experience that captivates and fascinates users.

Interactive QR Code Stations

Traditional QR codes, once a basic tool for accessing information quickly, have been revitalized through the integration of interactive technology. This innovation has opened up new avenues for engaging users. Imagine setting up stations at strategic locations where individuals can simply scan a QR code to participate in a contest, gain instant access to download a digital product, or immerse themselves in watching a branded video.

This approach not only simplifies the user experience but also effectively bridges the gap between print and digital realms, significantly driving user engagement and interaction with your brand. It's a straightforward yet powerful strategy to enhance customer engagement in our increasingly digital world.

Pre- and Post-Event Items

Pre- and post-event collateral are crucial for establishing and maintaining relationships with event attendees, ensuring your brand stands out. By engaging with attendees before the event, you build anticipation and set the stage for meaningful interactions. Following up after the event reinforces connections, keeps your business top-of-mind, and fosters long-term loyalty. Here are a few suggestions: 


Postcards mailed in advance announce or remind customers and prospects that you will be exhibiting at the event. These can be used to convey a specific message in a visually appealing way. 

Thank-You Notes

Following up with attendees after the trade show with a personalized thank-you note can help reinforce relationships and keep you top-of-mind.
