Fall Expo and Runway Preview Recap

It’s been a busy week for the Promo Box Club team! Many of our September boxes have been shipped out or hand-delivered, and we just wrapped up the Millennium Marketing Fall 2014 Expo. We hope you were all able to make it to our exciting event this past Wednesday, but if not, you can get the full recap here.
Wednesday’s event was a huge success and we were joined by a record number of vendors this year. Our wonderful sales reps were here to show the latest products from a variety of our preferred vendors, including Bullet, Evans, Garyline, Gemline, JournalBooks, Lanco, Leed’s, Prime, and Vitronic. We were also joined by trendsetting reps from AlphaBroder, Trimark, and Vantage who brought new apparel items for fall and winter. We also hosted several multi-line reps, including Harry Fotopolous, Robert Craxford, Walter B, James Hutchinson, and DBJ Associates.
There were so many exciting new products to see and ideas to explore, it was nearly impossible to see it all. One of the highlights of the day was our fun Runway Preview fashion show. Fabulous host and marketing consultant Mike Romeo was full of energy as he showed us all the latest trends for fall and winter. Read on for a full list of all the items worn by our gorgeous models:
