December 27, 2018 - By Emily Potter

In today’s Round-Up, we’re taking another look at the hospitality sector as it relates to the promo industry. We will also talk about the entertainment market and some of the best and worst caps in the NBA.

Promo Marketing

A Roadmap to Successful Sales in the Tourism and Hospitality Market

In 2016, the U.S. travel industry generated 2.3 trillion dollars. This article discusses providing promotional products to hotels, airlines, wineries, and more. Last time I was on a cruise ship, they gave away Corona caps with every bucket of beer.

In addition to hats, consider offering customers promo items that help make the process of traveling more enjoyable like headphones, neck pillows, or backpacks.


Rise in Music Merch Means Opportunity for Promo Industry

We’ve talked about selling into the entertainment sector before. This article looks specifically at music merch. If you’ve ever been to a concert, you know the line at the merch table is miles long, and the products are marked up significantly. But there’s nothing quite like bringing home a memento after having the night of your life finally seeing your favorite band or musician perform live.

In 2018, with online shopping becoming more popular than ever, artists are selling their merch all year and all around the world instead of just while they’re touring big cities. Check out the full article to see more about the music market.
