There's only one place to be before the exhibit floor opens at The PPAI Expo: the Product Pavilion Sneak Peek. Each year, thousands of attendees stream through the Product Pavilions, taking notes and making plans. This highly anticipated event gives attendees an incredible opportunity to create a game plan before the show floor opens so they can map out the products they want to see, the suppliers they want to meet and schedule it during the time they have available.

The Product Pavilion is where attendees go to see the best in New Products, Green Products, Made In The USA Products, Express Ship Products and 1st-Time Exhibitor Products all in one place. It's a sampling of products waiting on the massive show floor.

One of the things attendees are always on the lookout for is new suppliers. 1st-time exhibitors at the PPAI Expo are the perfect candidates to become your new suppliers. The key is being able to find them when the show floor is more than 900,000 sq. ft.

Situated next to the popular DECORATE pavilion (aisles 6900 and 7000), the 1st-Time Pavilion will house companies making their PPAI Expo debut. It's not big enough to house all of the 1st-time exhibitors, but it will give you a headstart on your search for new products, new suppliers and new partners.
