Hundreds of Promotional Ideas Debut

This unique pen and pencil holder will stop them in their tracksHere we are just one month into a new year, and already two major promotional product shows have been held. While new products are introduced constantly throughout the year, January always brings the biggest changes, with entire catalogs being updated. I attended the show sponsored by the Advertising Specialty Institute in Orlando, while colleagues made it to Las Vegas for the Expo put on by Promotional Products Association International. Since then we've been sharing some of the cool ideas we've found. While these shows can border on sensory overload, as you'll see from the video at the end, the trick is to sort out all the familiar stuff from the new and unusual. And more importantly, since the products hit you first, is to think about how they can best be used to get positive marketing results.
