I was at the Pennsylvania Auto Show this weekend in Harrisburg, and I’m sure I was the only one there who was stunned by the lack of promotional products being used. The focus was obviously on the cars, but the info booths I inspected were curiously lacking in the free stuff department. In fact, the only promotions I did see were these recycled logo tote bags that Toyota was handing out. Because they had a complete monopoly on promos, they also had a complete monopoly on booth traffic. People were carrying these things everywhere and believe me, they really stood out. I had at least 5 people ask me where the booth was so they could get a tote bag of their own.
