I was scrolling through Facebook the other day and saw a post with people lamenting the loss of conventions and the schwag they acquired.
I thought to myself, “Oh that’s funny.” Honestly, I did look forward to the random stuff collected at those events. I bet I am not alone.
I want to thank Amy Morgan for the inspiration.
Attorney Monica Carmean commented “I emailed my undergrad and asked it they could mail me swag so I feel human again. It’s in the mail.”
Conventions and meetings is, sorry was, a massive industry. Every industry seemed to have some sort of convention at least once a year. At those conventions, various vendors would usually have some sort of freebie to hand out.
So, I reached out to Matt Wakefield at Travel Tacoma – Mt Rainier and asked him if he had any schwag laying around we could give out. He told me he was pretty sure he did and gathered two Travel Tacoma themed bags filled with goodies. He also mentioned actually having to go out and buy some thumb drives this year and normally he collected them from the various conventions.
The bags are actually kind of cute and I definitely want one of the items in it. I will tell you that it does contain a thumb drive and a box of Brown & Haley Almond Roca proudly made in Grit City, but that certainly isn’t all.
For a chance to win one of the two bags, submit your favorite photo, video or song that you took or made (via a Youtube embed link) from 2020 on this page by creating an account and submitting at the bottom of the post, or email it to me at [email protected]
One will be decided by us and and some undecided impartial guest judges.
The other one will be decided through votes below the photos. Upvotes push the winning photo to the banner image. Make sure to post a title and description and links to your Instagram, etc…
You have until New Years Day to submit your photo! We will announce and mail the schwag bags to the winners a few days later!
The winners will have their winning photo, put on the front page of our site and as a banner on our social media pages with credit and caption linking to any Social media account, websites, or businesses you may have. We will also include an 8×10 print of your photo for your memories!
May the odds be ever in your favor during the season finale of 2020’s schwag games.
If you happen to be an organization with some schwag laying around that you’d like to give away as well, let us know! People are hungry for thumb drives!
