In January of this year Able Sage’s executive duo, Dallas and Amber, attended the PPAI Expo in Las Vegas. It was a whirlwind trip full of seminars and exploring the tradeshow floor. PPAI is the Promotional Products Association International, an organization of wholesalers, importers, retailers, and resource professionals. Able Sage has been a member since 2011.
Over the course of 4 days we attended seminars focusing on improving our clients’ experiences, developing and utilizing market tools, and strengthening strategic partnerships for long-term successful relationships with both wholesalers and clients. Our goal at Able Sage is to be your go-to branding strategist – with answers to questions before you ask. And our membership with PPAI allows us to do just that.
Now, if any of you have been to Vegas you know just how BIG everything is and the tradeshow floor was no exception – you can put a lot in 1,000,000 square foot space. There were more than 1,200 companies occupying 3,200 booths. All told, Amber and Dallas did more than 40 miles of walking!
Among some of our favorite booths were Pacific Northwest companies that are making a lasting and sustainable impact – Columbia River Knife and Tool (CRKT), Fifty/Fifty Bottles, and Love Bottle – along with some big names like Nikon, Fossil, BIC, and 3M. One of our favorite newcomers was Origaudio. They bring together stellar innovative design and classic ingenuity to high tech and functional products perfect for Executive and ‘Thank You’ gifting for your top client or your whole team.
Able Sage and PPAI together are your source for branding solutions and innovation. The Expo was just one opportunity for us to learn and discover, all in service to your continued growth and success.
