In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the challenge in staging a large, in-person live event without compromising the health and safety of exhibitors and attendees, PPAI has made the decision not to host an in-person live PPAI Expo 2021 and transition to a completely virtual live format in January under a new name: PPAI Expo Direct-2-You.

On January 11-14, PPAI Expo Direct-2-You will deliver an online trade show and education and networking opportunities to the promotional products industry from the comfort of participants’ homes and offices. Attendees will discover the latest and greatest products, attend quality industry education sessions, engage with hundreds of exhibitor suppliers and business services, and network with thousands of other distributors.

PPAI will soon be posting additional information about PPAI Expo Direct-2-You, including show hours and the event schedule, on the event website and through other communication methods.

“With the transition to a virtual live event, we can deliver a unique experience to connect our members globally, give more people the opportunity to view new, trending products; expand their knowledge with exclusive education sessions; network with their promotional products community and make lasting business connections,” says Paul Bellantone, CAE, PPAI president and CEO. “This unprecedented time has generated an amazing amount of creativity and collaboration in business, and PPAI is responding in kind. Participants can expect the same quality and scope of event that has long been distinguishing attributes of The PPAI Expo.”
