PPA Connect

Supporting the events professionals within the PPA membership.


PPA Connect is a community for events professionals within the PPA membership network. We offer support to those who are involved in creating, selling or marketing events within Business Media or consumer magazine organisations.

Through our own broad portfolio of interactive events, we celebrate and promote the important role that events play in the wider industry, bringing like-minded people together to share their ideas and challenges.

We cater for senior strategic owners as well as the practitioners who are on the ground making events happen. Whether you’re a CEO, MD of an events division, a marketing exec or an event sales manager…we are here for all of you.

There are so many exciting new events springing up and PPA Connect gives its membership a way to hear about the creativity and innovation taking place.
