SAAGNY Announces Two In-Person Fall Shows
The Specialty Advertising Association of Greater New York (SAAGNY) and its members have gathered three times for indoor shows in the past month. The last two were held Tuesday, Oct. 5 at the Melville Marriott; and Thursday, Oct. 7, at the Crowne Plaza Suffern-Mahwah.
On Oct. 7 in Suffern, the day began with an interactive panel discussion featuring Dan Edge, Peerless; Brett Hersh, Hit Promotional Products; Joe Hoffmann, iPROMOTEu; Mike Merkin, Hit Promotional Products; Andy Shape, Stran Promotional Solutions; and SAAGNY president Rachel Levin. This engaging discussion between the panel and the 45-plus attendees covered such topics as supply chain issues, customer wants and needs, how to speak to your customers, and industry forecasts.
Knowing that some of SAAGNY's distributor members might not be able to be in attendance, SAAGNY arranged to have each supplier videotape their Promo Sales Pitch. Those videos, once edited, will be placed on the SAAGNY website for distributor members to catch up with their favorite suppliers.
“Three incredible shows, six incredible panelists, over 300 distributor and client attendees, and hundreds of new products," Levin said. "What a way to start off Q4! I’m incredibly proud of our board and our executive director for remaining focused on providing such great value to our members!”

- Winter Show: Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2022, Suffern, N.Y.
- Summer Show: Tuesday, May 17, 2022, New York, N.Y.
