Events

Events and locations can vary from year to year.  PPAChicago prides itself on offering many different venues to fit our member’s needs for networking and to hone their skill sets.

  • Charity Golf Outing:  Come join the PPAChicago board members for one of the top Golf Outings of the summer typically held in conjunction with ASI Chicago Show.  Network with other Supplier’ and Distributors within the industry while enjoying golf with colleagues and industry friends and supporting local charities.
  • Lunch & Learn:  Held several times a year, three suppliers will captivate you with the latest trends, selling ideas, samples.  This provides some of our smaller distributor members an opportunity to be introduced to supplier lines and reps that they might otherwise not have met and establish business relationships.
  • The NPI Show:  Traditionally held in March each year is often referred to as the “Best Regional Show” in the industry.  Suppliers come with truckloads of product and samples. Hundreds of Distributor and their customer make this show a must attend every year to see the latest products and walk away with new ideas. What better way for Suppliers to meet the end user and for Distributors to provide value than to spend at day at this show!
  • Evening Networking Events:  A great way to get to expand your work network while having fun at industry events.  Mingle with other distributors and our fabulous suppliers and have some laughs. These events such as beer tasting, billiard’s tournament, wine tasting are scattered throughout the year.
