iPROMOTEu, Wayland, Mass., hosted its seventh annual "Thank You" Reception in Las Vegas during The PPAI Expo. An Elvis Presley impersonator from the Legends in Concert tribute show provided fantastic entertainment and Las Vegas showgirls added to the festivities. Steve Slagle, president and CEO of PPAI, extended words of welcome to the crowd of roughly 300 iPROMOTEu affiliates, prospective affiliates, guests and representatives of some of iPROMOTEu's leading preferred suppliers.
iPROMOTEu's Top Ten Preferred Suppliers for 2010 were recognized and honored. The award winners were: SanMar; Polyconcept NA (Leed's, Bullet, Journalbooks); Norwood and Bic Graphic USA; Broder Bros. (Broder, Alpha, NES); Bodek and Rhodes; Hit Promotional Products; Bag Makers; Logomark; Calibre International; and Gemline. Also honored was Hub Pen Company, recipient of iPROMOTEu's Supplier Appreciation Award for exceptional support of iPROMOTEu. Jamie Stone of Hit Promotional Products was named iPROMOTEu's Supplier Representative of the Year.
In addition to the annual reception, iPROMOTEu hosted an inaugural award luncheon to recognize company affiliates for accomplishments of note. Twenty affiliates received an award for their tremendous growth in the last year. Other distributors were honored for achieving cumulative career sales in excess of $1 million, $2 million, $3 million and $4 million.
"It appeared that iPROMOTEu had more representatives in attendance at The Expo than any other distributor organization, further confirming our reputation as a top industry organization," said iPROMOTEu president and CEO Ross Silverstein. "Over 150 of our affiliates participated. The energy was positive and the enthusiasm was palpable."
iPROMOTEu held many other events throughout the expo including a breakfast event where the company unveiled the Trade Only order management system to be implemented in the spring. The new technology received overwhelming support and excitement from iPROMOTEu affiliates.
