PPAI – Vegas – 2023

Wow! Another year calls for another trip to Vegas for the Promotional Products Industry annual trade show. It’s the largest industry trade show throughout the year in the promotional products world and it’s always a great way to find out what’s new and trending for the new year. As most of our clients know, we often come back with a fresh, new outlook on the industry. This year was no different and also proved to throw in a few new fun curve balls!

First thing is first-the long awaited trends and new products that you can browse for ideas, inspiration, or late night reading:

What do you think about the trends for 2023?

While we were attending the show and connecting with valued suppliers, Our Founder, Alison also was the recipient of a few awards! As most of you know, we partner with a company called iPromoteu for our back office support needs for the promotional products arm of our business. iPromoteu is a community of over 1300 independent business owners throughout the US and Canada. They are one of the largest and most respected distributor organizations in the promotional products industry. We partner with iPromoteu so we can focus on the creativity and production vs. getting to ‘in the weeds’ with the accounting and sales tax portion of the business.

While at the show, Alison was presented with not one, but two awards from iPromoteu! The first was the Elite 100 award. The Elite 100 award is given to the top 100 producers within the iPromoteu network. This allows our team to have exclusive communications from top suppliers, the ability to attend exclusive events, product mock ups, item research, and amazing specials and pricing for our clients.

The second award Alison was presented with was the Star Award. This award is presented to an affiliate who has generated significant sales, who is a positive addition to the network, and who makes the industry and organization better. This was a great surprise and honor to be recognized for the hard work our team here at Extend is doing to help our clients succeed.
