Canadian distributor Creative Concepts, based in Edmonton, Alberta, has affiliated with iPROMOTEu (PPAI 218870), a network of independent promotional products distributors in the United States and Canada.

“Our experienced team of 16 marketing professionals and staff searched the industry for a comprehensive software and support system that would allow us to continue to grow rapidly,” says Pete Kmech, co-owner of Creative Concepts. “We learned that iPROMOTEu’s investment in technology was second to none. Therefore, we felt comfortable moving our large national web-stores onto their sophisticated platform. This integration allows for less duplicated tasks and more time allotted to sales and marketing. We are excited to grow with iPROMOTEu and continue our market leadership.”

Creative Concepts was originally founded in 1976 by Kmech’s father, and co-owner Monica Forss, as a traditional distributorship.

“I am excited to welcome Pete and Monica and their entire team to the iPROMOTEu family,” says Ross Silverstein, iPROMOTEu’s president and CEO. “Pete and Monica enjoy widespread praise from the promotional products industry, and I am flattered that such high-caliber professionals have decided to affiliate with iPROMOTEu.”
