The 2016 Expo East was underway in Atlantic City, N.J., this week. We at Promo Marketing spotted everything from costumed leprechauns to fun giveaways. But if you weren't able to make it this year, don't worry, we've got all the highlights straight from the source.
"Expo East continues to be the premier East Coast event," said Paul Bellantone, CEO and president of Irving, Texas-based Promotional Products Association International (PPAI). "Our industry is evolving, and we are excited to see so many members attending education sessions, networking and collaborating with their colleagues to learn new ways to drive business. We had very strong distributor and reseller attendance on the first exhibit day, and we are expecting a strong turnout the remainder of the show."
This pen company happened to be right next to the Promo Marketing booth, which gave us the chance to marvel all day at the lightning speed in which it was able to personalize pens for show attendees. Available for personalization was the Zentrio Triple Function pen, which features a ballpoint, stylus and L.E.D. light.
The Ladies' V-Neck Tech T-Shirt was on full display at Gildan Activewear's impressive booth display. The 100 percent filament polyester jersey knit T-shirt features wicking properties and Fleshcare for for anti-microbial properties. It comes in sizes XS-2XL, and in 10 colors.
The toy company had an assortment of adorable stuffed toys, from Idaho potatoes to every animal imaginable.
