4 Reasons to Use Paper Promotional Bags at Conferences

If you’re going to be setting up and manning a conference table, there’s a good chance you’ll want to provide literature, promotional gifts, and other items related to your business to anyone you talk with. With that in mind, you’ll want to invest in a good selection of bags in which to hand those things over.

There are several options, but simple paper bags remain one of the best choices. Here are just four reasons why.

  1. Low-Cost

Since these bags are going to be given away for free – and potentially in great numbers – you’ll clearly want to keep costs to a minimum; things like canvas shopping bags and cotton tote bags might impress, but they aren’t so cost-effective as giveaway items. In contrast, you can order a huge number of branded paper bags without breaking the bank.

  1. Lightweight

There are two main reasons why you’ll want your conference bags to be as light as possible. Firstly, you’ll want to be able to move them around easily yourself. Secondly, you’ll want to make sure they aren’t going to weigh down anyone who visits your booth, especially if those people are likely to be carrying other promotional bags. Paper is strong enough to hold everything you need to give, but it’s also nice and light.

  1. Eco-Friendly

Just a few years ago, people didn’t care about how eco-friendly your conference bags were, but times have changed. People have grown more eco-conscious, so using a great number of bags that are bad for the environment – such as single-use plastic bags – is a good way to turn people off. Paper is natural, recyclable, and sustainable, so it helps create a more responsible impression.

  1. Easy to Brand

Finally, paper is a great material for branding. Colours pop, words stay legible, and the bag itself doesn’t crumple up to obscure your message or design. Since these bags are essentially going to provide free advertising as people carry them around the event, it’s well worth keeping branding on point by using paper.
