2019 PPAI Expo Recap
We are home from the PPAI Expo and wow – we saw so much, learned even more, and had a great time connecting with old and new friends! It was great to attend the 2019 PPAI Expo with our whole team because there is so much to take in and we were able to have three sets of eyes. Also, having three people let us be very organized about what we saw, learned, and visited! Every year at the PPAI Expo is a great experience and 2019 certainly did not disappoint.
Preparing for Year Ahead with the 2019 PPAI Expo
We love that the PPAI Expo is at the beginning of the year because it allows us to see the latest and greatest products while our clients are preparing marketing strategies for the year ahead. We have projects on the horizon for clients and, knowing that, we were able to connect the right products with the coming projects.
What We Saw at the 2019 PPAI Expo
Tech promotional products have been popular for a while and this year was no exception. Wireless chargers for phones are all the rage. They are easy to brand and everyone needs a phone charger. The upside of a promotional wireless phone charger is that it will likely be used often so your brand will constantly be in front of whoever receives your promotional product. Additionally, we saw some cool octopus-style charging cords that can charge multiple devices, of different kinds (smartphone, laptop, tablet, etc.), at once.
Our Takeaways from the 2019 PPAI Expo
The best part about the 2019 PPAI Expo is not necessarily the event itself, but all that we learn and take home to our clients. We are most excited about a movement in our industry called PromoCares. With PromoCares, all of our clients have access to supplies in our industry that give back to others in some way. If you’ve read our blog before, you know that we believe strongly in not just connecting the dots for our clients but serving the community in which we live and leveraging the power of our clients to support organizations that give back.
We cannot wait to share all that we learned at the conference with our clients. If you are planning your 2019 marketing calendar or are ready to plan your next promotional products campaign, we at Connect the Dots would love to meet with you. We would be happy to share with you about the latest and greatest products in our industry and how you can utilize promotional products to promote your business and encourage brand loyalty.
