2017 is here! So now what? (Part 1 of 2)

2017 is Here!The holidays are over, and the decorations are put away (hopefully!). So what happens now, you ask? How about a PPAI Expo recap to start off the year!

The Avalon team hit the show floor in Vegas like a one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest! We probably could have used one more day to get through the 6+ miles of aisles of supplier booths. Along with new, fun and innovative ideas, there were new takes on items that have been around for a while.

Here is Part One of favorite show picks, so enjoy and let us know if you see anything you like!

Shawna’s Picks

Shawna couldn’t stop talking about this gadget! It’s a Water Bottle Humidifier powered by a USB cable (flash drive, bottle not included). Reach out to us if you’d like to see the video on this COOL product!


This is a tote bag that doubles as a backpack. With logo placement on the bottom, this means a HUGE imprint area for branding!

Terri’s Picks

Looking to up your game (presentations) – Terri was on the prowl for bundling and packaging options. Think of the response from your recipients when you add creative packaging to the mix.

Tote Bag Backpack


On the techie side of the showroom floor – this pretty darn cool water bottle that pretty much does it all — from charging your phone to playing music, and more. It’s a Bluetooth speaker, LCD touchscreen display, phone charger, key ring. The water compartment is detachable and it is made from aircraft grade materials.

These are just the tip of the iceberg.  Angela, Rachael and I have our faves, too. Stay tuned for Part 2, coming out tomorrow, and in the meantime, give us a call, find us on social media or email one of us when you’re ready to knock the socks off your branding plans!

  • […] Parts 1 and 2 are just the tip of the iceberg of all we saw (we each had multiple faves, but posting Part 3 would have been blog overkill), and we’d love the opportunity to show you more. Make sure to follow us on LinkedIn, and look us up on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook! Or, pick up the phone or email one of us.  We’ll make 2017 a great year for your promo, print and custom packaging needs! Until next week…! […]
