Promo Marketing's Top Suppliers Issue
By now, you should have received our 2011 Top Supplier's Issue. While the issue is intense to produce, it's also exciting to see exactly how the supplier segment of the industry is fairing and who does what the best in your eyes.
Many of you logged on and voted for the top supplier in a variety of categories. For your efforts in helping us create this issue, I thank you. As you will see in the forthcoming pages, there are some surprise winners in some categories and some old favorites taking the gold, silver and bronze places in others. You will also notice we made some category additions this year, such as Light Up & Glow, Automotive & Tools and Awareness products.
What is also very exciting to see is our annual Top 50 Suppliers list. With much pleasure I reviewed the numbers submitted to us and many, many of your supplier partners are reporting revenue increases of more than 10 percent in 2010 over 2009, which means sales are up and we can all breath a collective sigh of relief, at least for the moment. While I realize we have a long road to fiscal recovery before us, it's good to be able to see such a widespread move in the right direction. Fingers crossed this improvement will continue and be reflected once again in next year's revenue reports.
With more than 175 unique products from almost every category under the sun, I feel certain this issue will be one you will keep as an "idea book" for a long time to come. So, whatcha waiting for? Start flipping through so you too will be in the know of who the year's Top Suppliers are.
