PPAI Associates (formerly UPIC) qualified nonmember companies may exhibit if they are in good standing with PPAI, have executed the nonmember exhibitor’s contract and paid all related nonmember fees. (Equipment, machinery, parts or materials used in the production or decoration of promotional products, and exhibited for the purposes of distribution, sale or resale, may only be exhibited in a specifically designated area. Such equipment, machinery, parts or materials are those typically used in the awards and recognition, decorated apparel and digital printing industries.) Any nonmember supplier’s product may be exhibited at not more than three shows in a time period not to exceed 18 months, after which the firm must apply for membership in PPAI and be accepted in order to have its products exhibited. (Non-Member exhibitors will pay a Non-Member fee for booths and other services.)
The primary purpose of The PPAI Expo, PPAI DECORATE, PPAI brand. and PPAI sponsored shows is to provide distributors and qualified resellers exposure to suppliers’ promotional products, premiums and business gifts and to provide appropriate educational forums and opportunities. The secondary purpose of The PPAI Expo, PPAI DECORATE, PPAI brand. and PPAI-sponsored shows is to provide distributors (and their qualified designees), other members and resellers exposure to business services, products and equipment that facilitate and enhance the supply chain of suppliers’ products through distributors to end buyers. PPAI reserves the right to decline any request if it is not in the best interest of The PPAI Expo, PPAI DECORATE, PPAI brand. or other PPAI sponsored shows. Exhibit locations within these areas are based on a priority point system.
