The economy roars out of the pandemic in a state of uncertainty. Supply and demand wobbles in a state of flux between over-stimulus and demand. And as global inflation rises, talk of a recession looms in many headlines. The impact of an economic slowdown on the cost of materials, fuel and transportation, jobs, and importing, could dramatically affect the promotional products industry.

In this interview with two of the industry’s leading suppliers, we’ll explore their unique insight into the state of the economy from their perspective and the impact inflation and a potential recession could have on the industry.

Join us to:
