    PROMO 101 - Learn the basics!


    Are you or a team member newer to promotional products? Do you need help educating new recruits on the industry basics?

    We have heard from many Distributors that they would like an introductory training program which covers the industry “basics” for their new hires. We've developed a program that was very well accepted at our May SHOWCASE.

    Promotional Products 101 will review: history of our industry, Sage, PPAI and ASI, key industry product categories, how promo products are used and why they work, who buys promo products, differences between incentives, award, premiums and giveaways, the Supplier-Distributor-End User model,  Supplier and Distributor Relationships, product safety, purchase order must-haves, decorating methods and other key topics.

    Please make plans to join us for this very interactive Promo 101 session on Friday, October 6th.
