SWAG SHOPPE

Want to promote yourself or your company at RWA2017 but don’t know where to begin? Have a limited budget but want a great return on your promotional dollars? The Swag Shoppe is for you! With a minimum investment, RWA will order the promotional items of your choice and have them placed in the Swag Shoppe.

The Swag Shoppe is set up as a boutique, where conference attendees can choose which promotional items they want to have. The Swag Shoppe is different from the Goody Room in that all items are pre-selected by RWA -- items attendees perceive as high value. These items are co-branded with RWA’s conference logo and the author’s or company’s logo. Attendees can go through the Swag Shoppe only once, except on the last day of conference when it opens for attendees to go through again. 

Pricing starts at $625.

Swag Shoppe items may be sponsored by authors, publishers, companies, etc.

Swag Shoppe Items

HOW IT WORKS

To keep sponsorship pricing low, the sale of these items is broken into four lots. All four lots must sell for that item to be placed in the Swag Shoppe (get your fellow friends and writers in on the action!). Lots can be purchased in any combination, or all four lots can be purchased to buy that item outright. Only the lots you purchase will have your logo and RWA’s conference logo on them.

Contact sponsors@rwa.org for more information.
