PPAI and Promo Marketing Media Group Join Forces, Collaborate on Leadership Conferences and Power Meeting Events
PPAI and Promo Marketing Media Group have recently announced they will join forces in 2016, working together on combined Leadership Conference/Power Meeting events. The two organizations will partner on marketing, sales and planning for the events. Each organization has extensive experience hosting successful events in the industry, and with their combined resources, the two upcoming shared events are sure to be without equal.
The two events the organizations will be collaborating on are PPAI’s Women’s Leadership Conference/Promo Marketing Power Meeting, in June 2016, and PPAI’s North American Leadership Conference/Promo Marketing Power Meeting in August 2016.
PPAI’s Leadership Conferences delve into the most relevant, top-of-mind business issues and ideas impacting the promotional products industry. Promo Marketing’s Power Meetings are exclusive relationship-building events, created for the industry’s elite. The Power-Meetings format features pre-scheduled, one-on-one sessions between distributors and suppliers.
“PPAI is committed to growing and protecting the promotional products industry,” Paul Bellantone, president/CEO of PPAI, said. “To help us do that, we frequently look toward like-minded, forward-thinking organizations to collaborate, partner, develop and deliver programs and services that help our members and the industry grow. The team at Promo Marketing Media Group shares our vision,” he said. “These two event co-locations are a first step in a relationship that will benefit both organizations, the industry and our respective members and customers.”
“I am thrilled our organizations are working in collaboration with one another,” Nichole Stella, president for Promo Marketing Media Group, said. “By joining together on venues, dates, marketing and sales, both PPAI and Promo Marketing's highly respected events will be exponentially more powerful for those businesses that attend.”
“We are very excited to partner with PPAI to present co-located Power Meetings with their distinguished industry leadership events,” Meghan Defrancesco, vice president/publisher/brand director, said. “By pairing our proven Power Meeting format with the powerhouse attendees at both PPAI events, we are sure to provide a business- and relationship-building experience for all in attendance.”
Each shared event will take place in the same location and will follow a cooperative schedule between its PPAI and Promo Marketing portions. Attendees participating in both events will be able to participate fully in each, allowing them to capitalize on the networking and camaraderie each of the events are famous for.
Attendees of both events will benefit from the high standard of professionalism expected during both the leadership events and Power Meetings.
Print+Promo's Distributor Connect events will continue as planned in 2016.
