IPPAG's Successful Far East Meetings
21 May 2010

Events kicked of with IPPAG's traditional PPP Supplier (Preferred Premium Partner) banquet reception during the Canton fair.
The evenings events focused on the consolidation and development of the ties between members and these partner suppliers: great business relationships and friendship that grow stronger every year.
The committee presented detailed plans of IPPAG's approach to large multinational clients: progress on CSR, with numerous factories having been audited in the past year, as well as stressing the requirements of large corporations.
PPP suppliers were presented with awards and expressed their pride and appreciation of their close collaboration with IPPAG.

This was followed by IPPAG's general member meeting in Hong Kong, held in coordination with the HKTDC's Gifts and Premiums trade fair.
The committee presented future strategic developments including the development of regional / global procurement opportunities, the expansion of IPPAG's PPP and audited supplier program, as well as plans for a combined management, sales and marketing meeting this August in Holland.
Members also took the stand with presentations on their best success stories, with outstanding case stories from Brindz in Brazil and Zinc in Australia, as well as details of Mexican member Eximagen's extended supplier qualification processes, in line with IPPAG's global CSR strategy.
Members also all participated by presenting their best case stories for the last few months: as always, a unique and invaluable source of inspiration and originality:
- awards for 'best sold item' went to Brindz, Brazil / Prime Resources, US / Kick&Rush, Belgium
- awards for 'best new idea' were attributed to CPT, Switzerland / Langhoff Promotion, Denmark / Gifting Ideas, India
- 'best case story' awards were won by: Zinc, Australia / Versopub, Mauritius / CPT, Switzerland

Building on the synergies that were confirmed during the group's January Düsseldorf meeting, enthusiasm and dynamism were strong and growing in scale with the involvement of IPPAG's new members for 2010: Axis Mundi from Slovenia, Gifting Ideas from India, IMI Trade from the Czech Republic, IMI Partner from Slovakia, Lesmar from the UK, and On Net Promotions from Turkey.

Also, thanks to our partner, the HKTDC, the high levels of sharing and close cooperation between members were maintained throughout the week, with product meetings held during the trade fair: the best way for your IPPAG member to bring you nothing but the fair's best and most novel ideas.
