PPAI Expo Direct-2-You Brings The Las Vegas Show Experience Home
January 11-14, the PPAI Expo Direct-2-You recreated the spirit and energy of The PPAI Expo, the promotional products industry’s largest and longest-running trade show, in the virtual space, allowing exhibitors and attendees to connect and learn from the comfort of their homes and offices. While it looked very different from what the industry has come to expect from the Las Vegas-based show, Expo Direct-2-You kicked off the year with a four-day multi-layered, virtual experience packed with new product introductions, live booth chats, education sessions, live interviews, fun pop-ups and networking events, including the presentation of PPAI’s top awards at the Icon Recognition event on Monday evening.
