The PPAI Expo introduces the latest developments, practices and trends in the promotional products industry, and the diverse range of businesses that work within it. It’s also a great time to meet and get to know professionals working in the field.
There are a number of valuable networking opportunities at The PPAI Expo. Here are some of the exciting events available to show participants. Get tickets when you register at www.expo.ppai.org.
The PPAI Awards Presentation & Reception
This industry is chock-full of innovators and creators, big thinkers and big doers, which is why The PPAI Awards Presentation and Reception is so thrilling. It’s the one opportunity industry members have each year to pay tribute to the best of the best, and learn how they did it. This year, PPAI wants to honor the industry’s creative excellence in the same manner in which it is shown—with excitement and enthusiasm. Instead of the traditional dinner format, the Association is throwing an awards reception that’s faster-paced with a fun, party atmosphere.
The PPAI Awards Presentation & Reception will be held on Wednesday, January 16, at 6 – 7:30 pm on Level 3, in the South Seas Ballroom.
Chairman’s Leadership Dinner
Foresight and focus, determination and drive, gracious and giving—these characteristics are embodied by the handful of volunteer leaders who will be honored during the Chairman’s Leadership Dinner. Previously an invitation-only event, this evening of appreciation and recognition is now open to all industry professionals who’d like to raise a glass and celebrate the 2013 PPAI Hall of Fame inductees, the Distinguished Service Award recipients and the H. Ted Olson Humanitarian Award recipient.
The Chairman’s Leadership Dinner will be held in the South Seas Ballroom, Level 3, from 6:30 – 9:30 pm, on Thursday, January 17.
The PowerOfTwo Party
The PowerOfTwo Party is the place to be on the final night of The PPAI Expo. Held at the LAX nightclub at the Luxor Hotel and Casino, it is a chance for show attendees to let their hair down and party the night away with friends, colleagues and clients. PPAI and SAGE are hosting the biggest party of the year: enjoy a hosted bar and a DJ playing the hottest tunes. All attendees must be at least 21 years old with a valid photo ID; passports are required for international guests. The dress code is strictly enforced, so no sneakers, tennis shoes, work boots or sandals (men) and no athletic wear, shorts or hats (men).
The event is on Thursday, January 17 from 7:30 – 10:30 pm.
