2019 PPAI Expo: My Favorite Promotional Products

Last week, I could hardly contain my excitement as I packed my bags and took a non-stop flight to fabulous Las Vegas for the 2019 PPAI Expo!

Here’s a look inside the trip:

What’s the PPAI Expo? I’m glad you asked!

The PPAI Expo is the industry’s largest promotional products trade show and this year’s show had more than 1,200 exhibitors and over 13,000 attendees!

Since it was my first time attending the PPAI expo, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. But after 2 days of walking the show floor with my team and discovering amazing promotional products I never knew existed, I was so impressed!

The 2019 PPAI Expo definitely exceeded all of my expectations. There was amazing promotional products for everyone – employees, customers, guests, members, you name it!

And with so many amazing promotional products, I wanted to share a few of my absolute favorites on the blog! Here’s 5 of my favorite promotional products from the 2019 PPAI Expo.
