CN – The official dinner of the international alliance Ippag (International Partnership for Premiums & Gifts) took place on the eve of the HK Gifts & Premium Fair on April 26, 2018 at the Hong Kong District Central at Restaurant Mercato in the California Tower. Amid a thoroughly relaxed and friendly atmosphere the international members met up to dine, engage in a casual exchange of ideas and – following good tradition – award diverse prizes and welcome “newcomers”, who had to give the obligatory vocal performance as new members. Furthermore, the company from New Zealand, Prime Source, traditionally donated the Sheep Award for the best presentation at the official meeting of the group in Guangzhou. This time the Ippag President, Thibaut Fontaine, presented the award to the donating company: Greg Banks from Prime Source was honoured with the prize donated by himself.
On the evening of the first exhibition day, the annual Partner Supplier Reception of Ippag was held inside the HKCEC exhibition complex. Here selected suppliers presented their product ranges – classics and innovations – exclusively to the Ippag members away from the hustle and bustle and stress of the trade show. Here too the relaxed and yet business-like atmosphere positively stood out.
