SAAC Expo, the West Coast’s largest regional promo industry tradeshow, is going back to San Diego for 2023. Block off Wednesday and Thursday, August 16-17 and make plans to join us at the San Diego Convention Center. For the third year, your hosted buyers will be allowed to walk the show floor and learn about the power of promo while brainstorming ideas for the fourth quarter.
SAAC Expo is the perfect place to find inspiration for holiday campaigns and gives you access to two days of face-to-face conversations and the latest trends in promo.

SAAC Experience: Game On!
Wednesday, August 17, 5 - 9 pm
New at SAAC Expo 2023! It’s time to bring out that competitive spirit. We are constantly competing for revenue, retention, and market share. But at SAAC Experience: Game On!, the only thing you’ll be competing for is a chance to win awesome prizes. Your ticket comes with a buffet dinner, DJ, games, and a (maybe-not-so-friendly) cornhole competition. This is your chance to beat out the competition while developing deeper and more intimate connections with potential partners.
Individual tickets are $100/seat, or you can get a table for your team (or partners!) for $750. Compare that to the cost of a corporate or team bonding event (not to mention the headache of trying to plan it), and you’ll see the true value this night of fun can have!
