Printed Promotional products set to boom in 2023 (video)

Most Sign & Display printers are aware of the ‘lateral’ markets available to them, thanks to many having screen or pad printing backgrounds. The most visible opportunities are t-shirts, baseball caps, and coffee mugs. They can be branded with DTG, heat transfer, or dye-sub. Flags, bunting, and banners can all be made in small runs, as well as on-demand. Australian Promotional Products Association has 5 Roadshows and 2 trade fairs planned for 2023.

The APPA will engage in a busy schedule of trade shows and roadshows in 2023. This is in addition to the successful re-starting of events in 2022 due to pandemic restrictions. From August 16th-17th in Sydney, the Promo Show 2023 will be the main event. The NZ Promo Show at Alexandra Park, Auckland follows two days later.                                                                                                                                         

APPA trade shows are a thriving tradition in the promotional products industry, and give distributors and suppliers a rare occasion to converge and conduct business in a face-to-face capacity. These B2B events are targeted at distributors and suppliers who supply products and services to the promotional products industry.
