PPAI Announces Promotional Products Work! Day on October 20, 2021
Promotional Products Association International (PPAI) has designated October 20, 2021, as Promotional Products Work! Day. The celebration will reflect the original program’s concept of celebrating the power of promotional products, but on a single day instead of over a full week. Throughout the day, PPAI, together with its members and other industry professionals, will actively recognize and promote the value, impact and effectiveness of promotional products—the most memorable form of advertising.
This transition will allow the entire industry to focus its efforts on the one-day event and make a more significant impact. Each opportunity is intended to thank customers; spread awareness of the important role promotional products professionals play in all aspects of advertising, marketing, and business; and promote the power of promotional products.
Different organizations will celebrate in different ways, but the priority is for all industry businesses to engage with their customers and local community.
