Trending Education Sessions

From exploring cutting-edge technologies, industry-leading ideas, innovative processes, and examining the trends of tomorrow, the Trending Now Series will feature the brightest professionals in their respective fields. These session topics will be unveiled in December so we can take advantage of the most-up-to-the-minute news and information when we design these courses. Please plan ahead for these new 60-minute sessions as seats are first-come, first-served.

Giving Back Product Pavilion

PPAI is excited to introduce the newest member of the uber-popular product pavilions. The Giving Back pavilion will showcase all that is great about our industry. Each product on display will have a built-in "Giving Back" function where all or a portion of the proceeds will be invested in a charitable cause. It could be 10% of the profits are donated to a clean water organization, or it could be an in-kind donation where every pair of shoes purchased triggers a donation of a second pair of shoes to a worthy cause. The best part? 100% of PPAI's revenues for the Giving Back pavilion will be donated to charity.

Giving Back joins New Products, Made In The USA, Green, Express Ship and 1st Time Exhibitor pavilions as part of the Product Pavilions adjacent to aisle 400.

1st-Time Exhibitor Pavilion

Open Tuesday 9:30 am - 5 pm, Wednesday 9:30 - 5 pm, Thursday 9:30 - 2 pm
Aisles 6700 -6800

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.

To help identify the newest entries in the show, the 1st-Time Exhibitor Pavilion returns in 2020. Situated next to the popular DECORATE pavilion (aisles 6700 and 6800), the 1st-Time Pavilion will house companies making their PPAI Expo debut. It's not big enough to accommodate all of the 1st-time exhibitors, but it will give you a headstart on your search for new products, new suppliers and new partners.
