Exhibiting or sponsoring a coffee trade show like the Specialty Coffee Association’s Coffee Expo or their symposium RE:CO?

Here are 19 items that are sure to surprise and delight your audience while keeping the buzz about your brand top-of-mind.

Note: if the events you’re participating in have been postponed, the bright side is that we can work together on dialing in on a deeper level of customizations.

Premium gear your coffee aficionado audience will love

Set your brand apart with higher-end accessory items that you can produce a limited run of and foster a feeling of exclusivity. Some ideas:

  • Launch a giveaway and choose select winners to drive booth traffic and engagement.
  • If you have meetings booked before the event, use the higher-end items as a leave behind to close out the meeting or use them as follow-up after the event by sending them as a mailed gift.
  • Use higher-end items as ways to keep employee morale and productivity high while working remotely. Reward high performers by sending them a limited edition branded item they can use every day.

Stainless steel straw set

Plastic straws are the most common plastic found in the ocean and because they’re uniquely sized, most recycling machines aren’t capable of recycling them, according to ETS Express.


As the second most common promotional product used by brands, there is rhyme to the reason when it comes to drinkware.

Nearly 90 percent of consumers own some kind of promotional drinkware, keeping them for at least a year or more, according to ETS Express.

For brands, drinkware generates over 1,400 impressions during the product’s lifetime! And best of all? The demand for these usable products is only climbing.
