PPAI’s Icon Awards celebrate the accomplishments of those who have gone above and beyond in service to the promotional products industry, the Association and their communities. The recipients of the 2024 Icon Awards are PPAI Hall of Fame inductee Dave DeGreeff, MAS, and PPAI Distinguished Service Award recipient Bill Petrie.

Celebrating individuals who have demonstrated monumental and selfless efforts and devotion to the promo industry, induction into the PPAI Hall of Fame gives permanent recognition to those whose creative spark and tireless dedication have helped the Association and industry prosper. DeGreeff’s 40-year career in promotional products has been one of significant professional accomplishments and continued support of PPAI, the Promotional Products Education Foundation and several regional associations serving the industry.

The annual PPAI Distinguished Service Award is presented to Association members who consistently contribute their skills and expertise toward the betterment of the organization. Through volunteer service or by offering their leadership to PPAI, these are members who have generously given the gift of their energy, time and enthusiasm. A long-time advocate for and educator in the promotional products industry, Petrie’s track record of supporting and giving-back to his field is extensive and laudable.

This month at The PPAI Expo Conference, part of The PPAI Expo 2024 in Las Vegas, DeGreeff and Petrie will receive official on-stage recognition and be guests of honor during a networking luncheon, as well as take part in a panel discussion allowing them to share stories and wisdom with the audience.

Anyone can sign up to attend the luncheon when they register for The PPAI Expo. Those who have already registered can return to their confirmation page and add a ticket to the luncheon.
