Some good freebies to give away at a health fair include health-related items, such as pedometers, hand sanitizers, mini first aid kits or water bottles. Your goal should be to provide attendees with something they can keep with them and use, meaning your choice of items is dependent on both your anticipated audience and your budget.
If you are a business or organization attending a health fair, it is strategic to select promotional items that relate to your business. For example, a gym could opt for water bottles or cold packs. A nutritionist could opt for a lunch container designed specifically for salads. A dental office could opt for a tooth brush or a travel-size floss pack. Many of these items can be ordered in bulk through promotion item sites online, and it is generally beneficial to imprint the items with your company name to promote your business, as good promotional items are carried out and used by attendees.
If you are hosting a health fair and are looking to give generic items to attendees, keep your audience in mind when you look at items. In corporate settings, stress balls, hand sanitizers, or pens are popular. For a more active crowd, lip balm or sunscreen may work well. Either way, a variety of items offers attendees a choice in what they take with them and can help you keep costs lower if you buy some items at mid- or high-range and keep a few at low-range.
