– The Sunbelt Promotional Products Association (SPPA) completed a tremendously successful tradeshow September 18th in Birmingham, Alabama at the brand new Embassy Suites hotel. The exhibit hall was sold out weeks before the show. SPPA provided several overflow booths outside the ballroom to accommodate additional exhibits.
The morning session featured Dennis Shaw, CAS, instructing a full room on tips and strategies to boost business. This was followed by the opening of the tradeshow themed “Let the Good Times Roll”. 59 exhibitors were visited by over 200 distributors and sales people in the promotional products industry. Participants were thrilled with the convenience of the new venue, and the layout of the exhibit hall and registration area, as well as the easy access to the facility.
SPPA is traveling this week, bringing their shows to Mississippi and Louisiana for the first time in many years. Room shows will be held with over 20 exhibitors on September 22nd at the Embassy Suites in Jackson/Ridgeland, Mississippi and September 24th at the Residence Inn Towne Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Suppliers will display their latest products and distribute catalogs to Distributors from the local areas.
SPPA is a member-driven organization delivering quality education, trade shows, networking forums and friendship to promotional product professionals in the southeast, primarily those located in Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and the panhandle of Florida. SPPA was formed to advance the image of promotional products and their use in the Sunbelt marketplace; promote the highest standards of business among its members and the promotional products industry in general; and create a meeting place for education, idea exchange, and friendship among Suppliers and Distributors.
