    Promotions East (and later, Expo East) has been a Promotional Products “must-go” since its inception in Atlantic City as the premier Northeast Tradeshow bringing suppliers and distributors together.  As a staple to thousands of Promotional Products professionals worldwide, Promotions East combines the experience of a national trade show with the atmosphere only a close-knit community can provide.

    Historically produced in the summer months, SAAGNY is looking forward to Promotions East returning to SAAGNY and its calendar of premier industry events.  SAAGNY will continue to build upon the tradition of success that Promotions East and Expo East has offered for generations of Promo Professionals. 

    “This show has served the northeast region for many years, bringing top-notch exhibitors and quality distributors together, resulting in unparalleled business opportunities,” said Paul Bellantone, CAE, president and CEO of PPAI. “As show manager of Expo East, we saw firsthand the dedication and commitment of the SAAGNY staff and volunteers, and have no doubt SAAGNY will continue to elevate the Promotions East experience. This region will continue to be well-served.”

    SAAGNY’s focus at this time is to revamp and renew the Promotions East brand; adapting to new technologies and current realities in large scale industry events. SAAGNY’s mission for 2021 is to re-create Promotions East and provide a product that will maximize the trade show experience for all our Members. 

    Paul Sprunk, SAAGNY President, added, “We expect the Promotions East brand to continue to bring a national slate of top-level suppliers and distributors to grow their business within the entire District One community and beyond.”

    Look for more announcements in the coming months from SAAGNY on this exciting news.

    As some of you know and some of you don’t, Cedar Crest (and the entire Cedar Rapids area including 20 counties) was hit by an severe storm with 100+ mph winds. We lost all power, internet and cell phone service area wide. Both of the electric utilities and all cell phone providers went down Monday about noon. Cedar Crest was not able to contact anyone to let them know what was happening until power was restored this morning. Cedar Crest is not operational yet but they do now have access to their computer system. They are in the process of trying to contact their personnel who most are still without communication capability.

    Cedar Crest is in the process of contacting customers who have orders in-house to let them know the status and find out if they still want the orders to ship. UPS and FedEx are only partially operational so shipping service will be questionable until Monday or Tuesday of next week.

    Although The SAAGNY Foundation Day of Service at Happiness is Camping was canceled for 2020 – the Foundation Board found a creative way to bring some joy to the children of Happiness is Camping. 

    Since in-person camp had been canceled for 2020 – campers were being treated to virtual options throughout the summer. The SAAGNY Foundation arranged for the campers to be treated to a magic show from Michael Kirschner, nephew of The SAAGNY Foundation Trustee Neil Kirschner.  Check him out -

    Michael’s show was an interactive experience using mentalism and magic to promote respect and kindness. Michael was gracious enough to donate his time to the children.  The children and their parents and siblings were delighted with the program and the opportunity that the SAAGNY Foundation was able to provide.  Ryan Campbell, Camp Director, commented, “I just wanted to thank all of you for the FANTASTIC magic show! The kids were still talking about it yesterday during activities. Thank you for making our night!!! We can't wait to have you all back at camp in person soon!”
