The expo ended on the 17th of January and by the time we wrapped up and returned to our places, we realized how extraordinary the expo was and were delighted to see all the attendees who gave us their business cards and left with a smile.

PPAI 2019 in a Glance

The PPAI 2019 in Las Vegas had one of the highest number of visitors in the past 10 years, with the attendance number of over 13,000 promotional consultants from over 30 countries. There were over 1,220 exhibitors and over 21,000 industry professionals making business connections on a 1 million square feet convention center.

An Epic Week!

ImprintNetwork had its first exhibitor experience in the PPAI expo and to our surprise had an overwhelming response. We got to meet many of our customers who were excited to see us in the Expo. Furthermore, we discussed with business owners extensively on their problems and challenges they are facing in their business.

PPAI Awards

This year the 61st PPAI Pyramid Awards Celebration was sponsored by St Regis Group. On January 15th there were 65 Gold winners, 79 Silver winners, 11 Supplier Star winners and 8 Supplier Award of Merit winners.

Paul Bellantone, CAE, PPAI President and CEO quoted – “The PPAI Expo showcases the world’s very best in the promotional products industry and the true power of the medium. From what I heard onsite and since returning to the office, this year will be remembered as one of the very best events we’ve ever presented—the most engaging, the best attended, and the highest satisfaction among suppliers, decorators and distributors.”

The 2019 trade show had numerous engaging experiences with the Live ‘Get in Touch’ interactive stage. There was also a Pop-up experience which was strategically placed and timed for the attendees. The trade show also had the 1st-Time Exhibitor Pavilion for new product suppliers and partners. Among other fun things, there were gourmet bacon, a beer garden, caricature artists and illusionists.
