Continuing Education And Training On Our Products Keeps Us On Top Of Our Game!
Given that we are an innovative and growing company, it is a MUST we stay up with the times. The business world is ever-changing and requires adaptation before being left in the dust. That's why at City Apparel, we educate ourselves on the latest and greatest products as well as associations to learn what the brilliant minds in business are doing to stay successful!
City Apparel is a member of two great associations, PPAI (Promotional Products Association International), which is a community of suppliers and distributors across the country that facilitates relationships between suppliers and distributors, provides educational training on sales techniques and product safety, and large scale trade shows to exhibit new and existing products in the field. We are also members of OPPA (Ohio Promotional Professionals Association), which is a regional affiliate of PPAI and is a non-profit trade association whose membership is comprised of distributors, suppliers, multi-line reps and service providers of imprinted promotional and advertising products. Their primary function is to enhance the image of promotional product advertising and increase utilization in the marketplace, provide education and development to increase standards of professionalism among members and the industry, provide ample opportunity for distributors and suppliers to develop meaningful relationships, and provide regional trade shows for members. The invites above are upcoming events we will be attending to better our knowledge on the latest products!
City Apparel attends the annual PPAI trade show which includes a New Product Pavilion and educational courses to refresh our sales training each January. We participate in local OPPA activities as a mean of fostering relationships with highly rated suppliers in the industry. We also have one on one training sessions and product overviews with top rated suppliers in office on a regular basis. Over the course of the past year, we have branched out our training into off-site supplier visits in which we have toured various apparel and promotional products factories to ensure that we are selecting the highest quality product for our customers.
So in simpler terms, we learn the boring stuff so you don't have to! All of the hours spent on the road and attending trade shows are to make sure we have the top knowledge on what's going on in the business world and how we can provide better service and products to our customers. We have the latest knowledge on what are the top products in corporate apparel, flame-resistant apparel, uniforms, promotional products and many more! Contact us today to learn more about our products from our excellent employees!
