We have been working really hard on this year’s swag for IAFP, and we have a lot of neat things to show for our efforts. Here is a bit of what we are bringing to the exhibitor’s hall. Come visit us at booth #545 (we’re near the food) if you want to come away with these goodies!
First, you may have seen these little ones smiling at you on our Facebook page. Unlike the real ones, these noroviruses from Giant Microbes are cute and completely non-pathogenic. To snag one of these coveted plushies, you must connect with us on social media while at IAFP. You can like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, or follow us on Instagram.
In 1.5 hours four of us perfectly packed 20 pounds of personalized M&M’s in Whirl-Pak pouches. What is a Whirl-Pak, you ask? They are sterile bags that have been around since the 1950’s and are a mainstay in medical facilities and research laboratories, but we also found they make nifty treat bags. And don’t worry, we used safe food handling techniques to bring you your chocolate fix!
And lastly, back by popular demand, are the NoroCORE stress reliever toilets. For those of you who have lived through a case of norovirus, you know the toilet was your best and most constant friend in your time of need. These were gone within the first 24 hours last year, so here’s your chance again if you weren’t one of the lucky few. We actually think this batch is even squishier than last year’s!
We have lots more in store, so keep an eye out for how you can get even more awesome stuff and learn about what we do while you are at IAFP!
