® Expo 2019 is in the record books as one of the best attended, most successful iterations of the promotional products industry’s largest and longest-running trade show. Attendees have not been shy about sharing their experiences at the show with the Association. A brief selection of their observations is included below.

We attended The PPAI Expo in Las Vegas for our first time. We had last attended Expo when it was in Dallas, so it had been quite a long time. We are on the East Coast and just never made the effort, knowing that suppliers are always visiting, and attending a regional show was good enough.

Wow, were we wrong! The networking and social part alone was more than worth it, and then add in 1,000-plus exhibitors and the education opportunities. It’s a grand slam. The only comment we had was that there wasn’t enough time to cover everything, but I guess that is a good problem to have.

Thank you for producing such a great show and experience for PRIDE PRODUCTS.

I get back from the show so motivated and inspired, rearing to go for the new year. It was great, from all perspectives. I loved the keynotes, the educational sessions and the closing session on Thursday afternoon was a bonus.

Thank you and the folks at PPAI for another outstanding Expo! Having some of the Red Tomato staff at the Expo was an amazing experience for them. They have truly grown from the week that we spent over there. Winning two awards—a Silver Pyramid in Marketing for Distributor Self Promotion and a Gold Pyramid in Technology for Blogs/Podcasts/Digital News—was the icing on the cake!

I can honestly say that in the 12 trips I’ve made to The PPAI Expo, this one was by far the best! Great attendance, an engaged group of clients and our team was there to kick some butt!
