TOPS+ Visits Major Canadian City Centres
TOPS+ Cgy Show Floor Our Traveling Optimum Promotional Show Plus (TOPS+) goes across the country to Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver beginning August 30, bringing suppliers and their latest and greatest products to distributors and their clients. This is the last big show before Christmas. It's where distributors get to talk to their suppliers without having to travel, where clients can find new ideas, see actual products, touch them and try them before they place their orders for the year-end gift-giving season. Take a look at the excitement of last year's TOPS+ show as it traveled to Halifax, Montreal, Toronto and Calgary

Survey Says...
Q1 Guy
PPPC regularly does industry surveys to keep its pulse on the industry. Recent surveys include the 2012 Q1 Sales Barometer Survey which asked if distributors and suppliers had seen any growth in the first quarter of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011, by what percentage, if they had achieved their sales targets, what kind of changes they had seen and what their sales predictions were. 
Results of these surveys are privileged information for members only. Join now.
