Why Attend?

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. 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. 

At the heart of the PPAI Expo is a strong, passionate and interconnected community that comes together each year—a community gathering like no other in our industry. 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. And the need for that community network has never been so desired as it is today.

Coming out of this pandemic, businesses across all industries will seek unique marketing opportunities to reach their customers. They’ll be searching for ways to break through the clutter that is likely to occur as America gets back to business. The PPAI Expo will be there to help you fill those needs.
