PPAI’s Annual Sales Volume Estimate studies sales within the promotional products industry to survey its size as well as the size of specific industry-related segments like product and program categories. This year, PPAI has again engaged an independent market research agency, Relevant Insights, to conduct this vital research.

“As we begin to evaluate the year that was 2020, never has your participation been so important,” says PPAI Interim President Bob McLean, CPA, CAE, CEM. “We have always received a tremendous response to this survey, but as we measure the impact of the past year, it is extremely important that we have your input. As with any research, the better the participation, the more accurate the results. Our industry was very forthcoming in our 2020 quarterly research. I now ask that you do the same for this study. The results of this survey will serve as a benchmark for future years, as we begin to emerge from the challenges of 2020.”

All PPAI distributor member companies have been sent a print or digital version of the survey. The email is coming from this address: surveys@relevantinsights.com. The deadline to respond is March 5. Distributors who did not receive a survey, or who have questions on responding to the survey, can send an email to surveys@relevantinsights.com.

All companies providing results by March 5 will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win an Apple AirPods Pro set, a Bose SoundLink Revolve Portable Bluetooth Speaker, or a Fitbit Versa 3 Smartwatch. 

To see how the results are reported and how they may be useful to industry businesses, a snapshot of the 2019 PPAI Sales Volume Survey is available here.
