Eskimo Joe’s Promotional Products Group Visits PPAI Headquarters
PPAI hosted a visit on Friday from staff members of Stillwater, Oklahoma-based distributor Eskimo Joe’s Promotional Products Group (UPIC: eskimo). Eskimo Joe’s team was in the Dallas area visiting vendors and wrapped up their time in North Texas with a stop at the Association’s Irving headquarters.
At headquarters, PPAI Director of Business Development Gary Slavonic, MAS, gave the Association’s visitors a tour of its offices and introduced them to staff. Eskimo Joe’s staff shared their company’s transition from a restaurant in a college town—Stillwater is home of Oklahoma State University—to adding t-shirt imprinting capabilities and a promotional products distributorship to their business model.
“Eskimo Joe’s story points to how Expo East can evolve by its partnership with the Imprinted Sportswear Show,” says Slavonic. “Exhibitors are always looking for new customers, and if they embrace the opportunities to work with traditional ISS attendees, the opportunity exists to build a supplier’s customer base.”
