Our History

Since its commencement in 2006, the Point of Purchase Online Network was created to bring POP designers a reliable resource that would inspire and influence their decision making process from design through retail activation. From this foundation, we started reaching out to other industry segments that play crucial roles in the retail marketing space and eventually created what you see today.

The Point of Purchase Online Network has grown into a robust, global community that believes in the power of collaboration and sharing insights. From the articles we post to the images we host in our gallery, our community continues to support a diverse association of solution providers that are vital to in-store marketing.

So why is this section of the website called Point Of Purchase International Network then? Since our gradual expansion outside of the U.S., we felt it was time to create an extension with popon.net to better represent the POP industry and the professionals who use it on a daily basis.

Our new website now offers a more robust platform that enables powerful search capabilities and a more organized approach to cataloging our articles and news releases. Note that the Point Of Purchase Online Network which will still host our image gallery and buyers guides.

As always, we encourage you to contact us with your comments and thoughts.
