Breaking News: Ban on Promotional Products distribution in the State Agencies of California

Published by at 5:46 am under News,Promotional Products

The governor of California has declared that there will be a ban on the distribution of promotional products in all the Californian state agencies and departments. With the state departments being one of the major clients in the promotional products industry, this news is estimated to impact the businesses of about five thousand which deal in the promo items industry directly.  Apart from this, it will also impact several companies which rely directly on business gifting to state agencies for their growth.

The different promotional products associations, like PPAI, SAAC and PMANC have joined hands to help the businesses regain revenues. These agencies are also trying to inform the governor on the long term losses that the state will have to incur due to this rather drastic step. To participate in the drive against this decision, please click here and contact PPAI if you fulfill the criteria.

If you think this step is rather drastic and unfair, you are welcome to voice your opinions under the comments section.

    I think the ban is unfair because companies are just doing ways to further market their products and services. I mean how will they earn if they dont do promotional activities?

    Really this ban is unfair,Every company wants to promote there company name at high level and promotional product is good for that. What is wrong in this?

    This is a reactionary step to the budget problems facing California (as well as every other state). The long-term effect of not using promotional products will be felt for decades if California experiences a population decline after businessses leave the state.

    Sure thin,it’s unfair.Promotional items and activities go with business,help brand building and maintain connections with prospect and customers,i really think it’s unnecessary to ban it.

    I still just shake my head at this. As an industry, we definitely have to educate people about what promotional products are and why they’re valuable marketing tools.
