Reflecting on PPAI Expo 2017
As the 2017 PPAI Expo comes to a close, we spoke with Paul Bellantone, president and CEO of PPAI; and Mary Jo Tomasini, MAS, chair of the board of directors for PPAI, about this year’s event.
“I think this Expo has been fantastic,” Tomasini said. “I am hearing just incredible feedback from distriutors that are walking the show floor and suppliers that ares showing. They’re saying people are more engaged when showing up to their booths and asking insightful questions, and they just seem to really have a stronger interest in the product. And I know the traffic is up. Our pre-show registration was up, and then we had people who showed up to on-site registration. I think this is going to be one of our best shows in recent years.”
