With 55 percent of the nearly 1,000 votes, EBI has won SHRM’s inaugural swag contest—a chance for attendees to choose the best giveaways from vendors in the SHRM 2016 Exposition.
From more than 600 vendors, we chose 12 whose swag was among the best. We limited these top picks to vendors who offered their giveaways to everyone and who offered them all the days that the Exposition was open. We then invited attendees to vote for their favorites.
