Here is my annual slideshow of select swag (OK, promotional items) provided by exhibitors at the Bar Convention, this year at the Arizona Biltmore.

A caveat: This is not all there is. What is shown here is an extremely subjective, personal selection made by me. I tend to only occasionally pick up pens (they’re nice, but meh).

Thanks again to the exhibitors for helping make the Convention more affordable. Let’s get swaggy. (Click an image to view them in a slideshow.)

On offer this year: A fortune-cookie. Hmmm.

The State Bar Convention ended on Saturday, but there are still a few housekeeping matters I need to address. So expect a post or two more about Convention content.

One of the favorite posts from last year’s convention (OK, one of my favorite posts) had to do with swag, those (sometimes) marvelous items you get from exhibitors as you traipse past their hard-working booths.

Spoiler-alert: I don’t think this year’s haul was quite as remarkable as last year’s. Nonetheless, I am honor-bound to provide photos of the 2011 swag. (Special thanks to my daughter Willa Eigo, who schlepped up and down stairs and ventured into multiple conversations in order to bring these items to your view. I really do need to pay her more.)

Without further ado, here are the items (please don’t complain, but I did not have the strength to photograph the surfeit of pens that were on offer. I like pens as much as the next free-seeker, but if it was a simple pen with an exhibitor’s logo, no photo)

Tomorrow, I give you my thoughts on what was one of the best events at convention.

Swag

Got swag?

Let’s admit it: Swag may be one of the prime reasons conference-goers enjoy exhibit halls at conventions. I mean, who doesn’t like a new pen, a squishy stress-relief ball, or a desk calendar.

This year’s conference has all that—and more. We decided to gather some of the more unique offerings at this year’s Bar Convention, shoot them quickly and put them up here for your enjoyment.
