Slim pickings – freebies at K2010

shiny briefcase K10_5220M.jpgBe sure to catalogue all the plastic freebies you pick up from exhibitors’ stands, my friend Alessandro messages me at the K-fair in Dusseldorf.


This kind of declaration chimes well with the RBI anti-corruption training, which requires all employees to declare all gifts and refrain from accepting anything over a nominal value.


In this spirit, I confess that I have returned from K with the following goodies:

  • One green stress  ball in the shape of an apple
  • One green notepad
  • One ICIS pen
  • One blue plastic shopping bag labelled “BASF Plastics key to your success”
  • One SABIC sail-shaped small packet of mints

I failed to get the exhibition’s must-have give-aways: the curly walking stick, the shiny briefcase (pictured, from the KraussMaffei stand), or the picnic chairs – all of which would have involved walking an extra mile to Halls 10-17.
