PPAI Diversity Development and Engagement Manager Seth Barnett was on the road last week, speaking at the Tri-State Promotional Professional Association’s (TSPPA) Fall Showcase in Cincinnati, Ohio, and the Virginia Promotional Product Association’s (VAPPA) Fall Showcase in Richmond, Virginia.

At  both events, Barnett addressed the changing consumer market, the need for social media integration and the increasing presence of younger people in the promotional products industry. He says, “I am continually impressed with the number of people pursuing education at these regional events, as it shows that PPAI and the regionals are providing necessary, valuable content.”
