3 Ways to Spice Up Room Drop Swag Bags

By Natalie Dupuis, August 10, 2016

Nothing says swag like a reusable tote bag stuffed with brochures and bulky notebooks attendees will probably throw away. Right? There has to be a better way. It’s time to reinvent the room drop.

1) Go Green

Companies like Virtual Event Bags can help curate digital swag bags with gifts from your sponsors—think a voucher for a bottle of wine or a beach towel. Guests can claim them once they’re home, so it doesn’t become one more thing to squeeze into a carry-on.

2) Have S’more

Create s’mores kits customized with your event or sponsor logo printed on a big marshmallow, courtesy of Candy With a Twist. You can even host a bonfire night for a reception and encourage people to BYOM (bring your own ’mallows).

3) Drinks on Demand

Think of this as a party—ahem, networking opportunity—in a box. Cocktail Courier works with groups to create custom boxes with all the ingredients, from the alcohol down to the garnish, for up to eight DIY drinks.
