The PPAI Expo provides an editorial content-rich environment with unprecedented access to product pavilions, new product previews, the incentives showcase, decoration and production technology advancements and the industry’s movers, shakers and decision makers.

Last year, The PPAI Expo brought 12,267 promotional professionals from 4,065 companies together under one roof for the five-day event. The PPAI Expo featured more than 1,251 promotional products exhibitors presenting hundreds of thousands of promotional products while occupying more than one million square feet of the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
