PPPC Communique: TOPS+ Virtual Is Almost Here
Considering the success of the Promotional Product Professionals of Canada’s (PPPC) first Virtual National Convention (Natcon) in September, PPPC is excited to present TOPS+ Virtual. TOPS+ Virtual will be held February 2-3, 2021, using the same platform that housed Natcon Virtual and SAGE Show Virtual. Both the PPPC and SAGE teams have been working hard to improve and optimize the virtual event platform to be the best it can be.
Our goal is to continue to provide a quality virtual show that is a worthy substitute for in-person conferences. Distributors are invited to join us for free. Please review the details and register to attend the show at www.topsplus.pppc.ca.
TOPS+ Virtual will provide an interactive experience tailored specifically to the promotional products industry. This platform enables distributors to visit virtual booths and discover new and trending promotional products from top industry suppliers. Distributors will also have options to connect virtually with exhibitors in real-time via the quick chat and video conference functions. Additionally, distributors can access the product pavilions to explore the hottest product trends and categories. Networking lounges will allow attendees to mingle, discuss hot topics and catch up with one another with an added twist.
PPPC will also be hosting a variety of professional development sessions, some pre-recorded and some live. Live sessions will allow attendees to ask questions and provide comments, while pre-recorded sessions provide attendees with the freedom to learn on their own time. Details on these sessions will be released in January.
Exhibitors will easily be able to set up their virtual booths by pulling product information directly from the SAGE database, uploading booth materials and selecting their booth staff. There will be multiple booth options available, so suppliers can choose the booth that best fits their business structure and product line. Upon purchasing a booth, suppliers will also be presented with the opportunity to sponsor an aspect of the show. From education session sponsor, to exclusive show sponsor, to pre- and post-show eblasts, PPPC has a sponsorship option that will fit your exposure needs. To purchase a booth and/or sponsorships, suppliers should visit topsplus.pppc.ca or contact our event planner, Sydney Shore, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
TOPS+ Virtual will be the perfect opportunity to connect with new and familiar faces in the Canadian promotional product industry. PPPC will continue to support and bring together the industry even when we are not able to hold in-person events. We hope that your team is as excited for TOPS+ Virtual as we are.
