High levels of commitment can be found among suppliers and distributors alike. One in two suppliers are thinking about the future: for example, a whopping 56 per cent of promotional products suppliers responding to the latest PSI Industry Barometer said they’d taken steps to get certified or obtain proof of sustainable operations in 2016. Among distributors, a still-respectable 29 per cent said “yes” to sustainability.

Where our power to imagine the diversity of promotional products reaches its limits, the PSI Show begins. From classics like the promotional pen to the innovative multi-functional tool, fresh from the idea factory: from 9 to 11 January 2018, a huge assortment of goods will be on display in the halls of the Exhibition Centre Düsseldorf. The Leading European Trade Show of the Promotional Products Industry will occupy even more space this time. Four exhibition halls will be completely sold out. The TEXTILE AREA in Hall 10 alone will be nearly three times as large as before. Moreover, on the third day of the show industry customers will for the second time get to access an event that otherwise is reserved for members only.

The promotional products industry continues to grow: approximately two thirds of the suppliers and distributors posted sales growth for 2016. A positive development is also expected over the next five years. The Industry Barometer 2/2016 published in November 2016 provides current market data and PSI 2017 is a true reflection of this. With about 1000 exhibitors from almost 40 nations the PSI trade show impressively underscores its role as Europe’s leading trade show for the promotional products industry. Following a change in show days, the Leading European Trade Show of the Promotional Products Industry will now run in Düsseldorf from Tuesday, 10 to Thursday, 12 January.
