Promotional Products Association International throws their kick off PPAI Expo every January, and we can’t wait to go for many reasons! First, we get to see old friends (iPROMOTEu staff and Affiliate friends and Suppliers). Second, we visit with too many suppliers to mention! Our focus is visiting Preferred Vendor booths and hopefully finding a handful of new suppliers and that next shiny new object.
This year’s EXPO is full of networking, education, a supplier tour and many miles of merch (oh, and maybe some spirits and a little bit of dancing)! Always on the lookout for specific customer projects and marketing initiatives. We can’t wait to come back from the show and share fresh ideas. Love when our customers tell us “You show me merch that no one else does”. That is the goal!!
In addition to seeing merch, we search out eco/sustainable. While looking for new products, we also search out green products, Made in USA products, innovative technology ideas, and supplier specials (from express and expedited shipping, to incentives for iPROMOTEu Affiliates).
So next week, along with having A LOT of F-U-N (and sore feet!), we’ll be working hard walking miles of the Mandalay Bay Convention Center floor to make sure we’re current on the latest and greatest branding ideas. Keep an eye out for our updates from the #PPAIExpo floor by following us on social media!
