PPAI, in conjunction with the Germany-based Promotional Product Service Institute (PSI), announces a partner association agreement with a key goal of providing each association’s membership open access to tradeshows, resources and networking opportunities.
The partnership with PSI, which produces Europe´s largest trade fair for promotional products, the PSI Trade Show, is a natural extension of PPAI’s offerings to its members. The focus of the agreement is improving access and encouraging 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 attend the PSI Show 2013, January 9-11, 2013, in Dusseldorf, Germany, and likewise, PSI members are invited to attend The PPAI Expo, January 14-18, 2013, in Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition, members of each association are welcome to attend the opening ceremony/general session for each event.
“PPAI is committed to providing products and services that afford our members the opportunity to continually enhance their business and relationships,” says Paul Bellantone, CAE, PPAI president and CEO. “We are excited to partner once again with PSI, and we will work together to elevate our respective show brands and create greater opportunities for access both in the U.S. and international markets. We are pleased to welcome PSI members to The PPAI Expo 2013 and look forward to the interaction and exchange of ideas.”
