After a long succession of COVID-related disruptions and delays, the 2021 NZ Promo Show finally came to Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland on Wednesday August 4 2021.
The show was a resounding and undeniable success, proof that the promotional products industry in New Zealand remains stronger than ever.
Despite the absence of APPA staff (prevented from entering New Zealand due to COVID-restrictions), APPA's New Zealand Committee were able to welcome more than 150 member and non-member distributors through the door, a phenomenal result for both APPA and exhibiting suppliers.
The trade show was followed by a semi-formal cocktail event within the show venue, attended by a 65-strong group of APPA NZ Committee Members, distributors and exhibiting suppliers.
Thank you to APPA Director Bo Burns (Fundraise Factory) and APPA's New Zealand Commitee led by Grant Forbes (Zinc), for managing the show in the absence of the Melbourne-based APPA Team.
Thank you also to our valued show sponsors; TRENDS, Gildan Brands, JB's Wear, The Carry Bag Company and Logo Line, for all their support leading up to and during the event. Only with the continued support of loyal APPA supplier members is APPA able to bring its members such successful trade shows and events.
