PPAI has named Chicago, Illinois-based supplier Pacesetter Awards as its new PPAI Pyramid Award sponsor.

The PPAI Pyramid is the most recognized award in the promotional products industry and continues to advance the awareness and prestige of its talented companies and individuals. First introduced in 1958, the PPAI Pyramid Award recognizes promotional products businesses and helps spotlight the collaborative business model unique to this industry. PPAI presents approximately 100-130 Pyramid awards on an annual basis.

“We are delighted to be chosen to create this year’s Pyramid Award that symbolizes greatness and prestige in the promotional products industry,” says Jim O’Neill, Pacesetter’s executive vice president. “Pacesetter has designed a bold, yet classic pyramid crystal trophy design that demands the attention this honor holds.”

Pacesetter Awards was founded in 1982 as a producer of acrylic awards and plaques for the promotional products market. It has grown to a staff of more than 100 artisans and product creation specialists in a 40,000 square-foot facility, and has diversified into crystal, glass, metal, resin and custom awards of all shapes and complexities. A family-owned and operated company for three generations, Pacesetter’s products are sold and shipped worldwide.

The new award piece will be unveiled at The PPAI Expo 2022 in an awards case located in the PPAI Headquarters booth on the trade-show floor.
