I just registered for IFA 2020 in Orlando in February. Have you? Sign up now for the International Franchise Association’s Annual Convention! And, what the heck, while you’re at it, join me at Franchise Update’s Multi-Unit Franchise Conference in Vegas, baby.
I always look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones at these great industry events! I also like to see this year’s promo items and giveaways from franchise industry suppliers. Here’s a look back at the Top 10 Best Swag Items of 2019:
7. Scorpion Pens. Every company has branded pens. But Jordan Wilson, Justin Mink, and crew must have known that my preferred pen is the Pentel X 0.7. Thanks guys! Now if only someone had a nice notebook in which use these pens…
4. Social Joey Stickers. Because who doesn’t like a cute kangaroo or a shameless plug.
2. The Better Software Company Straws. These metal reusable straws are not only environmentally friendly, but also great for travel. They’re perfect for an airport Bloody Mary at ORD (or Caesar at YYZ with Paul Howard and Steve Cody).
