PPAI Enhances Tradeshows by Unifying Housing with Registration

FREDERICK, Md. Promotional Products Association International (PPAI) and Experient plan to unify event housing and registration together at The PPAI Expo and Expo East.

For the past three years, Experient has been providing registration and lead services for these events. Combining demographic and behavioral data drived from registration and housing will allow event organizers to see and understand more about their events than ever. With this data, business decisions can be made that will enhance marketing efforts and result in better guest experiences.

“Experient has done a great job with our registration and we believe that combining registration and housing will enhance our member experience,” said Darel Cook, PPAI director of expositions & meetings. “Our ability to create individual experiences through complete data knowledge from combined registration, lead, and housing services separates us from our competition and furthers our goal to make the PPAI Expo and Expo East exceptional and unique events.”

This partnership casts further proof that Experient is the event industry’s leading provider of unified event services and technologies.
