A Woman’s View, an organization dedicated to supporting women in the promotional products industry, recognized women for their accomplishments in 2021 during its annual networking reception, held January 12 during The PPAI Expo in Las Vegas. A Woman’s View was created by distributor iPROMOTEu, originally to benefit its women affiliates, but its programming is now available to all women in the promotional products industry.

At the reception, sponsored by SAGE, PPAI, ASI and iPROMOTEu, more than 150 women were on hand to celebrate the recipients of the organization’s 2021 Visionary Awards. The 2021 Affiliate Visionary Award was presented to Brittany Smith, president of A4 Promotions & Incentives. Smith was presented the award for her notable sales growth achievements and ingenuity in business. The 2021 Supplier Visionary Award was presented to Shari Garvalia, strategic account manager for Showdown Displays. Garvalia was recognized for building a stellar reputation as a trusted partner with her creative approach and dedication to always providing the highest level of customer service.

“We’re thrilled to continue to recognize, support, and empower the women in our industry through A
Woman’s View,” says Lori Bauer, senior vice president of affiliate sales and support at iPROMOTEu and
chair of the company’s Women’s Advisory Council, which leads A Woman’s View. “The women we are able to bring together are some of the best leaders in the industry, not only for their knowledge but for the way they lift one another up. We couldn’t be prouder of the work they do.”
