What happens in Vegas…

January 23, 2017

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Well…we are breaking the rules and bringing home what happened in Vegas. Last week David, Brian and Molly attended the PPAI (Promotional Products Association International) Expo in Las Vegas. The PPAI Expo is the largest industry show and the most highly attended event with more than 20,000 people in attendance. It’s the launch pad for new products and services. We found a lot of new products that we are excited to tell you about. The drinkware trend still is Yeti-like mugs and Swell-like bottles, plus more cool technology items were seen all over the floor. Full color decoration capabilities and also many new retail brands are being added to a wide array of product types.

Brian’s Faves:24744223

#SL233SS – Arctix 3-in-1 Insulator – I like that it can be used as a glass or can insulator and the lids store at the bottom so you shouldn’t lose.

#BD-393 Excursion Backpack Duffle – I like the versatility of this item

#K580 Pinpoint Mesh Polo – I liked the material and reflective accents on this polo.

#EMB-ID-6 Seat Belt Strap Cover

#ZIP1243 Reliant Auto Safety Tool – Seat belt cutter, glass breaker, flashlight, red flashing light all in one for under $10.00.

Molly’s Faves:

#L224 3 LED Flashlight with Magnet – I couldn’t put this piece down because I kept playing with it. I am sure others will do the same.

#3523 Primary Care Non-Woven Event First Aid Kit  – I loved this kit because it’s the first I have seen that includes toilet paper. Think about how many events that this could be used at

#P45986 Luminate Delta Styles Twist Pen and #Q45525 Hitech 6-In-1 Pocket Pro – I normally don’t get excited about pens and key tags but these are very, very cool. The logo is illuminated. These will draw attention from any end-user. Pictures don’t do these justice, you must order a AP8018_zmsample.

#06214 Gadget Grips Clip – Very practical item. This is a clip that goes on your phone to secure to your purse, belt loop, etc. I know I need one of these so I am not digging out my phone from the bottom of my purse.

#8150 Vintage Leather Tech Caddy;#4450 Vintage Leather Tech Case – I’m seeing more people use an item like this for their phones.

#AP8018 – Two Pocket Fashion Tote – This item resembles a popular Thirty One bag. Very fashionable and features a zip closure and two outside pockets. Very roomy – great for the beach, farmers market and sporting events.
