EMI will work with you as an extension of your team to provide hands-on project management with one point of contact, with an unparalleled level of responsiveness, creativity and flexibility to navigate any issues.

“Our strength is more than simply providing a service, but also using our people, our skills and our tenacity to reach the optimal outcome every time.

SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT - Brand Evolutions

Brand Evolutions is a Cincinnati based print shop, offering ANY custom design for ANY activity!  

OFFICIAL SUPPLIER OF THE CINCINNATI FLYING PIG MARATHON

Their specialties include athletic events and charity walks/runs, large and small. From apparel to signage, your event will be in good hands.

"It is my pleasure to be a part of Product Camp again this year", said Trey Walker, C00/President of Brand Evolution, "and to participate in a sponsorship capacity as well as providing the t-shirts to be given out to attendees".

Their Mission - Help companies, organizations, teams, and individuals represent their Brand.

Their Passion -  Partner with you to Evolve your Brand through merchandising!

Brand Evolutions began as a simple idea to streamline and evolve the merchandise offerings for the Flying Pig Marathon. We saw a need and a way to take the burden of merchandise procurement and e-store management/fulfillment away from the long list of staff responsibilities, allowing them to focus on what they did best, putting on one of the country’s most popular marathons. That following year the Flying Pig Marathon saw record merchandise sales, adding to the Pig’s ongoing mission of raising money for local charities.

Trey also noted,  "We feel it is important to support the local product community because it is in this community that our company lives and breathes.  It is where we, like so many other businesses find our life blood to thrive and grow.  A strong local "product" community naturally distills down to a strong "person" community, and at the end of the day it is great people behind great companies that make great communities."

Let them help you Sport Your Brand!

SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT: 50 West Brewing Company

Located in a former roadside speakeasy on US Route 50 heading west into the city of Cincinnati, Fifty West Brewing Company first opened its doors in November of 2012. Since then, one thing has remained the same. Every time you have a Fifty West beer, you know it was handmade in small batches with a focus on the four virtues we hold closest to our hearts: craftsmanship, tradition, innovation, and patience.

"Fifty West is proud to sponsor this year's Product Camp Cincinnati", Said Tommy Hemmer, Director of Marketing and Communications.  "We believe that innovators and product developers ceaselessly advance our culture by creating solutions to problems that people may not even know they have. We believe that self-discovery can only be achieved through self-exploration, and product developers are constantly exploring. The partnership couldn't have made more sense."  

Tommy - we all totally agree, and are thankful that our ProductCamp attendees will get to enjoy 50 West's innovation ... a truly craftsman beer!  

If you haven't already, you certainly will make a visit to the brewery, after sampling 50 West beer!
