The Michigan Promotional Professionals Association (MiPPA) hosted the regional association’s annual end user show, Ideas in Bloom, on May 17 at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The show attracted more than 600 attendees from across the region.

The show featured two education sessions by Kirby Hasseman, CEO of Coshocton, Ohio, distributor Hasseman Marketing. He presented “Succeeding in the Give First Economy,” a keynote and continental breakfast, and a lunch and learn. Both sessions, sponsored by Edwards Garment Company, were attended by 190 guests.

Crash, the mascot for the Grand Rapids Whitecaps, a minor league affiliate of the Detroit Tigers stopped by the show and posed for photos with the attendees.

“The show was fantastic and it gets better every year,” says Deborah Mann of DMannding Results. “The distributor support is UNPARALLELED and show logistics are incredibly well managed.”

Joe Eberz of Eberz & Associates adds, “MiPPA’s Show was amazing. Great job to the entire MiPPA board on a job well done.”
