Each January, the Promotional Products Association International hosts thousands of suppliers, promotional consultants, and industry associates from around the world at the largest promotional products tradeshow in North America. The expo also serves as a way for highly engaged distributors to showcase their top marketing products for 2022 on a grand scale.
The goal of the expo is to help those in the promotional products industry stay on top of current business trends. Aside from the show floor, the expo provides education sessions led by industry leaders and influencers.
The promotional products industry is ever-evolving and developing as companies propose new solutions for clients to communicate their message. Fully Promoted is an industry leader for innovative products that are both purposeful and memorable in helping businesses and organizations leave a lasting impression of their brand.
With The PPAI Expo underway, there are several top promotional products for 2022 being seen amongst brands’ offerings that are noteworthy as we enter 2022.
New products include the ICEMULE Cooler (waterproof, portable, and keeps contents cool for 24 hours), Nexbelt Neubelt Series (vegan, truly customizable belts), Wenzel brand’s Lodgepole sleeping bag (oversized, extra-cozy fleece-lined sleeping bag), and Clearmount Plastic’s Traveller MyPlanet (bottle made from 100% post-consumer materials and extruded from a single piece of aluminum).
Business formal dress remains a signature in traditional markets. Striking a balance between comfort and efficiency, the Men’s Freedom Twill Shirt is coated with a wrinkle-resistant finish, adjustable cuffs and sleeve placket, and inclusive sizes. The Standard Leather Belt is not only smooth and versatile, but sales support Mission Loan. The Redwood & Ross® Russel Suit Coat brings cohesion and convenience together in a tri-blend that’s machine-washable. Men’s EcoTex™ Recycled Blazer is made from 60% recycled polyester derived from post-consumer PET plastic bottles. The Alienware Vindicator 2.0 Briefcase’s durable nylon exterior and weather-resistant base keep electronics and personal items safe during travel.
Product Pavilion displays.
Featuring new products, green products, made in the USA products, Healthpitality Products, and first-time exhibitor products, these displays have become a favorite of attendees. This year’s standout products included Apple AirPods, GoDonut (universal phone and tablet stand), Carton Garden (unique gardening kit with seeds, starter soil, and wooden seed stakes), and Boompods Zero Mini Bluetooth Speaker (pocket-size wireless speaker).
Outdoor apparel and wearables.
With more consumers spending time outside, it only makes sense to provide products that speak to the outdoors and enhance the experience. Coleman® 28-Can 42-Hour Soft Backpack Cooler (features a heat-sealed, antimicrobial liner to keep the backpack free from mildew, fungus, and odors), Venture® Soft Shell Pant (heavy-duty, durable, with water-repellent coating), Women’s Guardian (heavy-duty, recycled, velvet-lined jacket), The Storm Flash (umbrella with built-in flashlight with adjustable head, and automatic opening and closing at the push of a button), and Carhartt® Cargo Series Waist Pack (water repellent fanny pack).
Wearables need to complement a wide variety of different body types, lifestyles, and personal tastes while being functional and flattering. Items of note include Fraconia Quilted Pullover and Jacket (sleek yet comfortable and stylish), Dockyard Performance Hoody (made using recycled fibers, sustainable packaging, and odor control technology), Ladies’ Burnout Wash Sweatshirt (relaxed-fit pullover with a percentage of proceeds being donated to the National Parks Foundation), and PolarPack (backpack cooler bag for all-day use).
It’s not all about non-perishables in 2022! Notable sweet treats include SugarSpot (more than 20 premium packaged candies), Sir Walt Candy’s Pecan Turtles and other freshly made chocolates, nuts, brittles, and gourmet popcorn, Maple Ridge Farms chocolate sea salt caramels (a blend of sweet and salty), and Fireside Favorites Mailer Kit (make your own s’mores and hot chocolate).
