This can prove to be invaluable to your company, and help to boost your company to the next level!

Based on the word cloud, the focus was rather balanced, and some words that stood out to us were “Promoproducts” and “Branding”. This is expected, as the expo is heavily focused on promotional products, and product branding has certainly become more important.

Aside from the word cloud, we also tracked who was tweeting. There were plenty of tweets on promotional products.  This shows the popularity of the expo.
