PPAI Expo Direct-2-You To Celebrate The Industry And Its Brightest Stars
The industry’s largest virtual trade show, PPAI Expo Direct-2-You, arrives next week, January 11-14. It will feature hundreds of industry companies on the virtual trade-show floor, inspirational and relevant education content delivered in live and recorded sessions and interviews, several options to connect with favorite suppliers and establish valuable new connections, and explore product pavilions featuring top category searches, all from the comfort of attendees’ homes and offices. Expo Direct-2-You will also recognize the promotional products industry’s best and brightest, with Monday evening’s PPAI Icon Recognition Event.
During this virtual event on January 11 at 6-7 pm CT, the Association will celebrate the 2021 PPAI Hall Of Fame inductee Teresa Moisant, MAS; the 2021 PPAI Distinguished Service Award recipient Mark Abels, MAS; and the 2021 PPAI H.

The evening will also recognize the latest accomplishments of the Promotional Products Education Foundation, the contributions of Promotional Products Pioneers, celebrate company milestones and more.
Show participants can stop by the PPAI Icon Award Networking Lounge between 8 am and 10 pm each day of the show to leave a personal video message for this year’s honorees and engage with this unique community.
