A resort chain selected the Synergy All-Purpose Tote as an incentive gift to visitors who attended their timeshare presentations. The resort chain filled the tote with sunscreen, lip balm, a towel and a packet of timeshare information in return for 90 minutes of the visitors' time. Visitors used the totes while on vacation, creating a buzz about the timeshares and enticed other visitors to attend the presentations.


Uptown Convertible Diaper Bag Kit

In an effort to increase enrollment in its prenatal & birthing classes, an urban hospital provided the Uptown Convertible Diaper Bag Kit as an incentive gift. After attending all 4 classes, the expectant mothers received the bag filled with informational flyers and gift certificates provided by local businesses.

Economy Tote

A community event was held to celebrate spring as well as promote local vendors. The Economy Tote was decorated with the logos of local businesses participating in the event, and packed with information sheets on each vendor.
