PPAI And PSI Present 2014 Trade Show Partner Agreement
Promotional Products Association International (PPAI; www.ppai.org), the world's largest and oldest international not-for-profit promotional products association, in conjunction with the Germany-based Promotional Product Service Institute (PSI), recently announced a 2014 partner association agreement providing each association's membership open access to trade shows, resources and networking opportunities. The agreement provides market access and encourages global outreach in the promotional products industry. PPAI serves members from around the world and has agreements and alliances with more than 30 U.S. and international associations.
Under the agreement, PPAI members are invited to register for and attend the PSI Show 2014, January 8 through the 10, 2014, in Dusseldorf, Germany. Likewise, PSI distributor members are invited to attend the PPAI Expo, January 13 through the 17, 2014, in Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition, members of each association are welcome to attend the opening ceremony/general session for each event.
"The PPAI and PSI partnership further strengthens the discourse between distributors and suppliers providing greater market access for our members," said Paul Bellantone, CAE, PPAI president and CEO. "Once again we are pleased to welcome PSI distributor members to The PPAI Expo."
Last year, The PPAI Expo brought more than 20,315 participants together under one roof for the five-day event. The PPAI Expo featured more than 1,300 exhibiting companies and 3,300 booths presenting more than 100,000 products occupying 1 million square feet of The Mandalay Bay Convention Center, the fifth-largest convention center in the U.S.
