Last week, PPAI® hosted a visit from Don Freeman, CEO of event marketing and management firm Freeman, along with members of his senior leadership team. PPAI has partnered with the Dallas, Texas-based company for more than 50 years on The PPAI Expo and other Association initiatives.

Freeman, who is also chairman of the Freeman board, visited PPAI along with Rob Engelhardt, senior vice president of client development; Danny Ferguson, senior client solutions manager; and Chris Mahoney, a client development executive to meet with PPAI staff and tour the Association’s headquarters. Freeman also delivered a Valentine’s Day-themed cupcake display for staff.

Darel Cook, director of expositions and meetings, says, “PPAI has been a customer of Freeman for more than 50 years, and Mr. Freeman and his team wanted to express their appreciation. PPAI and The Expo have benefited from this long-term relationship in several ways, including high-quality and consistent products and services; their consultative services on the best practices within the trade show industry; and as a long-term customer, we are afforded ‘early adoption’ opportunities that haven’t been widely disseminated in the trade show industry.”
