Just last week, the 2019 PPAI (Promotional Products Association International) Expo wrapped up in Vegas with tremendous success. Over 12,000 distributors from 4,550 companies attended this year’s expo, which featured over 3,000 exhibitor booths showcasing 2019’s new and exciting promotional products.
Members of our Hinda Merchandising Team were once again among the attendees dedicated to discovering the latest trends, innovative products and newest technologies at PPAI. Associate Buyer, Tocanda Neeley noted that multi-function products were a huge hit this year. Suppliers showcased an array of products with multiple functions including Bluetooth speakers with Qi charging pads and even water bottles, not only with Bluetooth speakers, but also with dedicated space to house a smartphone.
One particular item our team was astounded by was a cooler loaded with unique functions from a removable solar panel with USB port to a splash-proof Bluetooth speaker, to a rechargeable blender and a magnetized bottle opener and corkscrew.
Here are a few photos our team captured while at the Expo.
