International Awards & Personalization Expo Trade Show


2021 International Awards & Personalization Expo is Cancelled

It is with great disappointment we are announcing that the International Awards & Personalization Expo scheduled for February 23–26, 2021 will not be held next year. The Board made this difficult decision with the health and safety of our attendees and exhibitors as our top priority. After careful consideration, we could not find a way to safely hold the event and deliver the close networking and educational experiences that the International Expo has provided over the years.

Over the coming months, be on the lookout for new educational programs and networking opportunities that will connect you with industry experts and leading suppliers!
