There has been a trend in recent years whereby some organisers and sponsors appear content to give away cheap totes to delegates instead of giving away smart and desirable bags. Of course, the sponsor may be saving a few hundred pounds but do they realise that cheap bags with little thought about the quality and style end up in the bin.
We recently asked a venue hotel to tell us about the rubbish collected from attendee rooms after the event. It was both revealing and depressing. The bins were filled with cheap totes and workshop materials.
An ugly bag filled with lame, useless things will end up in the nearest bin when no one’s looking. A functional, stylish conference bag filled with functional promo gifts can make a strong first impression so sharpen up before your next event. Do not underestimate the marketing power of a stylish conference bag.
Ensure your name isn’t trashed…

Many of you will already know Kate as your Account Manager. She started with Nexus in 2008 as a trainee Account Assistant and now is the “go to” person for any branded goods, especially last minute bag orders!
Kate’s role sees her heavily involved in the day to day management of the Print Schedule as well as working alongside many clients from enquiry through to delivery, organising branded delegate bags, lanyards and a vast array of other promo gifts.
“Many of my clients are up against the clock. They have very little time to organise artwork for printed bags, as sponsorship agreements and last minute logos can often be confirmed within days of their events starting! That’s where we step in!
Nexus can offer artwork within minutes and printed bags within hours. There are very few bag manufacturers who can turn around branded delegate bags within such a short space of time and it’s great to be able to take even the smallest amount of pressure from my clients!”
If you have a last minute orders just drop Kate an email:

We wanted to offer our warmest wishes to Nina Cosgrove, a member of the Elsevier conference team, who was diagnosed with Primary Progressive Sclerosis (PPMS) in February 2015 aged 36.
“Over the last 18 months my mobility has declined and I now use a walking stick all the time. I am not able to walk any significant distance as I get very tired and my legs become stiff and heavy. As the condition suggests my symptoms will progress – I explain this to people by saying that each day I feel a bit worse than the day before”
Janet Seabrook, Head Of Conferences at Elsevier, is working with colleagues to organise a raffle for the staff to raise funds for the MS Trust. We wish you all the best!
