NXNE Marks the Beginning of Summer Music and Art Events

For the 19th year in a row, NXNE events will be happening all over Toronto. Events range from musical performances, to art exhibits and films. We love NXNE and look forward to it every year – what can be better than seeing The National performing live, for free, in downtown Toronto?

In the spirit of this awesome collection of cultural events, we wanted to to outline some of the best promotional products to hand out at large cultural events, such as NXNE. Whether you are a sponsor, exhibitor or other stake holder, promotional products are a great way to build emotional connections to your brand.

1. Lanyards
Personalize your event by creating a unique lanyard that features both the name of the festival, and the specific event attended. Lanyards come in an array of colours, and can be custom printed on to your liking. A unique, or limited edition lanyard is sure to catch attendees’ attention, and is more likely to become a keepsake for years to come.

2. Water Bottles
For any outdoor events this summer, there is nothing more useful than a reusable bottle of water. For large public events, hand out bottles with your logo printed on them, and if possible arrange to set up water cooler stations around the event space. Imagine the grateful attendees who will be able to quench their thirst thanks to you?

3. Hand Sanitizer
For many people, events such as NXNE, are an all day excursion, where they travel from one event to the next. A great way to showcase your logo is on a small bottle of hand sanitizer, printed across the label. A must have item when out all day in the city.

There is still time for you to get the promotional products that will help you make this years’ NXNE events the most successful yet. Contact us for information on rush orders, and help figuring out what is the best promotional item for you and your brand.

Have a great week and enjoy the festivities!

PS. NXNE will be happening all over Toronto from June 10th – 16th. For more information visit their website: http://nxne.com/

Promo on the Street

Promotional apparel and merchandise is everywhere, and is a great way to extend your branding and create familiarity among customers/consumers.

Blo Blow Dry Bar franchises are great at branding!

Each week, we stop people on Toronto’s busy streets, pop into their stores, and take pics of our favourite personalities around the city sporting promotional apparel/merchandise favourites.  It is a great way everyone to recognize just how integral those little items like lanyards, hats, t-shirts, aprons and buttons are to the success of your business, large or small.

Pizza Pizza knows what's up!

You could be next! How creative is your company’s branding? Stop into H.A.S Marketing at 545 King Street West (down the alley way, on left side), Toronto,  and we will be happy to consult with you for your next big event, customer loyalty gifts, business cards, and any promotional merchandise/apparel or materials you need to get your company’s message across!
