Welcome your guests with bags they'll love

How do I know that guests love welcome bags so much?  They tell me so.  Today I saw a fantastic reaction when guests came into our hospitality suite to pick up their welcome bag.  When they checked in at the front desk they were handed this card:
And then they came into the Sharp Room, so incredibly excited, flashing their card.  They found their bag and there was an immediate, "Oh my gosh, how perfect!".

That's what I call a proper welcome.  What a way to start the celebration after their travels.

Some things we like & sometimes to include in our bags are:
2 bottles of water
Breath Mints
A savory snack like Pringles, Sunchips, or pretzels
A sweet snack like Famous Amos cookies or Nikkis Key Lime cookies
2 Pillow packs of Advil
Lip balm
Koozies (personalized are the way to go)
Maps (Love Snappy Maps!)
Beach Towels
Candy (like m&m's)
Matches (personalized)

and always: a guest guide outlining the events for the weekend!
