We know this is an uncertain time for many gift & souvenir retailers as we all stand against the impact the coronavirus is having on the world’s health and economy.  Our thoughts and best wishes are with everyone being impacted.

In our goal to support the industry year-round, we have created this page to serve as a resource for you and your business. We continue to look for ways for gift & souvenir professionals to stay connected and informed – with each other, and with vendors. If you have any questions, concerns, other ideas or content to share, never hesitate to contact us.
