PPAMS Road Shows scheduled for 2013; exhibitor contracts available online
PPAMS
The popular PPAMS Road Shows will return to Memphis, Nashville and Knoxville in August and are expected to again feature about 100 tabletop exhibits and over 400 product lines. Again this year, PPAMS members can bring their customers to all three locations. "We hope the timing of the show will allow distributors to jump-start their fourth quarter by being able to show their customers new ideas and products for the holiday season," says Julie Nordine Jacob, talent manager for tradeshows. "Hopefully the end-buyers will also see lots of new products they want to add to their fall budgets for 2014!"

The shows are scheduled for Monday, Aug. 12 in Memphis, Tuesday Aug. 13 in Nashville, and Wednesday, Aug. 14 in Knoxville. Exhibitor contracts are available online at www.ppams.com/exhibitor-info.html. Distributor and end-buyer registration will open in May.
