Paper First Affiliates held its 24th annual Conference & Tradeshow at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio from Feb. 1-3, 2018.

The show and conference drew more than 70 PFA members and nearly 90 vendors, including representatives from the balloon, costume, décor, party, toy, games and retail technology industries.

On the opening day of the conference, PFA members attended the buying group’s annual member meeting before Boot Camp Digital representatives broke down the always-changing ins and outs of Facebook and other social media platforms and how they can help retailers reach potential customers.

The two-day trade show portion of the event brought members together with vendors in a rotation-style format that allowed members 11 minutes at each booth.

The evenings were a time of social interaction in relaxed setting, as an opening reception was held Feb. 1 at the Grand Hyatt. On Feb. 2, attendees were bused to the historic Sunset Station for an evening of live music, dancers and Mexican fare.

Next year’s PFA Conference & Tradeshow, which will be the 25th, will be held in San Diego from Jan. 10-12, 2019.
