PPAI Hall Of Fame
The idea to establish a Promotional Products Hall of Fame was conceived in 1973 to honor those individuals whose contributions to the products industry are not only noteworthy but go beyond their own companies. The nominations for the first Hall of Fame candidates took place in 1976 and resulted in the induction of seven candidates in 1977.
The highest distinction that the promotional products industry bestows on its professional is induction into the PPAI Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame recognizes exceptional contributions to and long-term involvement with PPAI and the industry.
