Read the December 2018 issue of PPE

The December issue of Progressive Party Europe is available to read now, packed full of great content including the H&P Expo preview, industry news and opinions, product updates and much more.

Retailers and buyers looking to start planning for Halloween 2019 should be looking forward to our full preview of the Halloween and Party Expo 2019, which is taking place from 25 – 27 January at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.

This year’s show has more than 350 exhibitors making the most of the unmissable opportunity to show off their latest lines – with 40 of those brand new to the show. H&P Expo is also partnering with popular haunt tradeshow HauNTcon for the second year running, ensuring it will be more jam-packed with events, workshops, exhibitors and attractions than ever before.

This issue is also the first chance we’ve had to consider Halloween and the overall feeling this year was that really, Halloween 2018 was nothing much to write home about. It didn’t break any records, but equally, it didn’t break anyone’s spirit either!

You can also read more about the financial side of these results (with both UK and American breakdowns, because we’re good to you like that) in the news pages.

We also take a trip down under where we speak to the team at A Party Place, Australia’s biggest party retailer to find out more about the family business celebrating its 20th year in business.

Product features in the issue take look at the new business that is Carnival as well as the old favourite – especially for balloonies – Valentine’s Day.

As ever, please drop us a line with any news, views or anything else you’d like us to look at in the future.
