We started 2019 excitedly as we got to visit the annual PSI tradeshow in Dusselforf. PSI stands for Promotional Product Service Institute and are known to be the largest European Tradeshow within the Promotional Product Industry. This event annually attracts over 1000 exhibitors from all across Europe with thousands of visitors from as many as 85 countries. For exhibitors this event is interesting as the international environment gives you the opportunity to expand your network, broaden your knowledge and have a good time. Their sectors are advertising specialties, promotional items, incentives, print and label equipment and many more. As visitors you will get the opportunity to explore the latest trends within the industry, try out new products, and possibly find a solution that suits your needs.
We sent a few of our employees to go to the fair and visit many of the stalls and companies. It is always great to have such exposure to many of the companies that work in our industry of focus, which is the promotional products industry. We saw a great number of companies displaying their eco-friendly products, and sustainable lines. It was great to see the initiative, and direction many companies were taking regarding sustainability. Within the PSI fair, a booth for sustainability awards was also present. This was a way for companies to enrol, and display how sustainable they are. Some of these companies competing were aware of, and already had Eco Vadis ratings.
We went to the fair to spread more information regarding Eco Vadis, and to see which companies may be interested to get an assessment and work with us. We’d like to thank PSI for the wonderful fair that they organized, and the chance to meet all of the companies participating in the fair.
