Deluxe influencer bags explained
At every expo, we fill 50 Deluxe Influencer Bags with samples from exhibitors who pay for a Standard Booth. We distribute these special bags to our influencers with the largest followings. Items for these bags can be brought to us at load-in, and must be in our hands by 8am on the day of the expo to be included in the bags. We hand out roughly 30 of these bags at the expo, and ship the rest to influencers across the country afterwards. They’re a great way to get a boost of nationwide exposure!
