A full list participating "Show Your Badge" retailers is available here. This year SAAC now has a special badges available for family and friends of attendees so they too can take advantage of the special "Show your Badge" offer.
"I remember years ago when The SAAC Show was at the Town and Country Hotel in San Diego. So many suppliers and distributors brought their families along and everyone would sit by the pool after a long day working the show," said SAAC past president Patti Lawrence of HALO Branded Solutions. "We would have a few laughs and get to know each other on a more personal level before the big parties that evening."
