Whereoware’s sales and client services teams stayed busy this Las Vegas Market, meeting with clients, demoing our Pharos E-commerce Suite, and of course, socializing!
Las Vegas Market features a number of prestigious panel discussions, receptions, award ceremonies, and special events.
Gift + Stationery 40 Under 40 Awards
The team’s visit kicked off with the presentation of the Gift + Stationery 40 Under 40 class of 2019, honoring the gift and stationary industry’s next generation of leaders.
Whereoware’s own Teddy Pekalski, Sales Manager, was recognized at the reception on Sunday as one of the Gift + Stationery 40 Under 40 honorees representing all facets of the gift and stationery industry.
We’re so proud of Teddy for this important honor and congratulate him and the other honorees for propelling the entire gift and stationery industry forward.

We joined industry leaders for an inspirational discussion on mentorship, followed by a reception in support of the WithIt scholarship fund.
