Nanocrystallite and Nanoparticle Size Analysis with an X-Ray Diffractometer – Alan Rawle & Scott Speakman (PANalytical)

Pittcon is a show where there are literally bags full of giveaways on every stand.  Every year we try to come up with something inventive that is both useful and give some publicity to the company.

This year it was interesting to see how our Spectris sister companies, PANalytical and Omega, tackled the same issue that perplexes us on a regular basis. The Pittcon giveaway bag this year was a useful shoulder variety plus a small LED flashlight:

Omega was offering a ‘wheel-of-fortune’ competition and depending on where you finished on the periphery of the wheel would define your prize.  Useful items included a ruler, extendible flashlight, and a set of playing cards documenting their product range:

On the “Guess the number of particles’ contest (see Day 1) we have a nice Malvern pen offering – has a flashlight and iPhone stylus.  This item can be combined nicely with an extremely useful writing pad from PANalytical providing a really functional and useful combo:

Should we offer anything?  If so, what are your thoughts and suggestions? What should we offer as ‘freebies’?
