Event Coordinators—Consider it done

There are many important details in event planning and it's impossible to be an expert of them all. When it comes to attractive promotional bags filled with exciting products, The Sample Guy's got it all taken care of. You'll have one less detail to manage...and a lot more time on your hands. You can even receive free marketing of your event as our valued customer. Your event will be the one they remember—the one that keeps them coming back year after year.

We give you the option of two customized programs, each tailored specifically to your needs.

Program Option 1

  • Sign up and put your event information on our master list. (This is free advertising of your event. Plus, product vendors may choose to place their samples at your event.)
  • Direct any interested vendors to contact The Sample Guy.
  • Ship your sponsor's samples and information to us and we will include it in the bag.
  • The Sample Guy will stuff items into your bags for a small fee depending on the size of your event and number of items sent to us by your event.
  • The Sample Guy will add additional items to help enhance your goodie bags giving your participants more return for their entry fee.
  • Ask your bag manufacturer to ship your bags directly to the Sample Guy or purchase one of our Eco Friendly Virtually Unbeatable Bags which are 100% Biodegradable.
  • After filling the bags, we box them up and prepare them to ship directly to your venue. Events are responsible for shipping charges to their event. Please contact The Sample Guy to arrange shipping details. We do a lot of shipping, so you can be sure our rates are very low.
  • Worried about exclusivity issues? Don't be. The Sample Guy will assure that items in your bag do not conflict with your sponsorship obligations. If we sign up an item that will not work, just let us know and we will relocate them. With The Sample Guy, you are in control of your bags.
  • Relax... your sample bags will arrive on time and ready to go. And your participants will love them!

Program Option 2

This one's pretty simple. It works the same as option one, except you do the bagging. We have found that many events have long-standing traditions where groups of individuals enjoy stuffing your bags. If that is the case with your event, it does not have to be a deal breaker. We can still locate additional items for your event. We will then coordinate them and ship them to your event. (Event is responsible for shipping charges for coordinated items)
