Our Journey

We've come a long way from our humble beginning in 1987.

Let’s start at the beginning

Established in 1987, with a concept of a simple name tag. Promotional Plastics cc began when Cheryl Odello, our founder, saw a need within the conference and exhibition industry to allow event organisers to locate delegate name badges easily and efficiently. 

From the basement of her house, Cheryl crafted the first designs for a quality name tag with a simple clip and pin attachment. A lot of time and effort went into the packaging. The presentation box was well thought and included an alphabetical sorter and A4 sheets of perforated card inserts. It created a simple solution for arranging delegate badges during registration. The high-quality presentation box allowed organisers to re-use the name tags by making it easy to store and transport them between events.  

30 years later and today Promotag ® is a leading supplier of Name-tags, ID Card Holders, Lanyards, Wristbands, Promotional Items as well as Security and Travel Accessories to the MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conference, Events, and Exhibition) and Corporate Industries in Southern Africa and Africa.
