Community. Knowledge. Business.

For 18 years, the promotional products industry has gathered in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center to celebrate the power of promotional products. And we are planning to do the same in 2021.

Countdown To
The PPAI Expo
January 11-13, 2021


Message From The President & CEO Of PPAI

Important message: PPAI sent out an industry-wide announcement outlining changes for The PPAI Expo 2021 on May 13, 2020.

Be Part Of The PPAI Expo 2021

The PPAI Expo will certainly look different than it has in the past, but its purpose will be the same—to provide community, knowledge and a forum to do business. Our goal is to make the PPAI Expo a brand you can count on for business opportunities well before and after the live event.

From developing new relationships to connecting with old friends, networking with this community is always at the top of the list for attendees at the PPAI Expo. Serving as the industry’s annual gathering place and the kickoff to business each new year, the PPAI Expo is the crown jewel of community in our industry and it will continue to shine.

We will once again set the industry standard in speakers and education opportunities, with 50-plus breakouts and two general sessions. The list of offerings may not be as broad as in previous years but the quality will remain. You can expect a timely and relevant lineup of top-level speakers. 

Coming out of this pandemic, businesses across all industries will seek unique marketing opportunities to reach their customers. The PPAI Expo will be there to help you fill those needs. Changes to the show hours and days will help both attendees and exhibitors with travel expenses, as well as their time away from the office. We will also be adding PPAI Expo-related virtual opportunities available in advance of, during and after the 2021 live event.

What Is Changing

  • Reducing the number of exhibit days: Tuesday, January 12 and Wednesday, January 13
  • Extending show hours 
  • One day of education on Monday, January 11
  • A modified show floor & registration area
  • Virtual opportunities before, during and after the show
  • One General Session Tuesday morning and Association Update Wednesday morning
