ASI Chicago 2019 – Stand Out Products

We exhibited at the ASI Chicago 2019 show. Many distributors and suppliers came by for a demo and to see what’s new with ZOOMcatalog.

Our team also spent some time walking the show floor. There were many new and exciting products on display. Here are some of our favorites:

QuickFlip Apparel: QuickFlip Hoodies

The large crowd surrounding the QuickFlip apparel booth piqued our interest. Rener Gracie, the founder of QuickFlip Apparel, was there demonstrating his new convertible hoodie.

Rener Gracie, the inventor of the QuickFlip Hoodie, accepted a $500,000 offer from Shark Tank investor, Lori Grenier. Shortly after, Gracie entered the Promotional Product industry as he said he would on his Shark Tank episode.

Using Quickflip’s proprietary conversion technology, their line of outerwear options can quickly and easily convert into a drawstring backpack. The best part? There are two unique imprint locations available on every QuickFlip garment – the hoodie AND the backpack.

iClick: PopWallet and Iridescent PopSocket Grips

As the sole supplier of PopSockets, the iClick booth was buzzing! With a whole line of new “pop” products, including PopMinis, PopWallets, Vegan Leather and Iridescent PopSockets, it was difficult to choose one item as our favorite. Two that stood out were the PopWallet – a removable wallet (making wireless charging a breeze) with a pop socket on top and the beautiful new Iridescent PopSockets – the traditional design we all know and love with a new finish that really shines.
