Welcome to 2016! Hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season. As we kickoff the new year, there are several new initiatives that we are embarking on at Team Iowa. One of them is a new blog. We needed to refresh the look and change the format a bit. Second, we want to use more video email marketing and to compliment that with more creative direct mail to stay in touch, communicate new products and to share industry information.
The first big upcoming event for 2016 is the 4th Annual TIPPS event on February 23rd. Over the next few weeks we are going to spotlight several of the suppliers. One of the big changes with the event this year is the size and location. We have moved the event to the first floor within the Hilton Convention Center and nearly doubled the number of suppliers coming to exhibit. We are so excited with the lineup of top shelf suppliers this year, you will be very impressed! So over the upcoming weeks look for more information on our list of suppliers. The event is totally free of charge, bring a friend from another business or a guest from within. The event is intended to bring suppliers of promotional products to the end users, the people who purchase, order and handout the items. This is a great way to see a lot of ideas under one roof.
