PPAI Magazine November 2023

Music City Will Host The PPAI Women’s Leadership Conference In 2024 THE 2024 WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE will be held at the Hutton Hotel in Nashville on June 2325. It will mark the first time in more than 15 years that the event has been held in Music City. WLC is one of the promo industry’s most pivotal events of the year. Women in every stage of their careers gather to share empowering business advice, triumphs and their hopes for the future. “This event supports an important community that has always been exceptionally engaged, supportive of one another and supportive of PPAI,” says Ellen Tucker, CAS, CAE, vice president, revenue and expositions, at PPAI. “We want to keep prioritizing the growth of WLC because it’s an investment that continues to pay off for our industry in more ways than we can count.” With promo veterans making WLC an integral part of their schedule every year, the event has also grown each year, creating a blend of fresh and experienced attendees. Organic mentoring opportunities have blossomed through WLC weekend like perhaps no other industry event. “The event was overall extremely inspiring,” Mary Jo Tomasini, MAS+, CEO of Competitive Edge, said of the 2023 event. “It was so great to meet so many new women. The relationship aspect is what I love.” A boutique hotel just steps away from Nashville’s historic Music Row and catering to the musically inclined, the Hutton Hotel includes a recently renovated meeting space, and PPAI expects to have an exclusive buyout of all the hotel’s rooms. “I’m so looking forward to enjoying this city with these amazing women,” says Lindsey Davis, MAS, director of business development, at PPAI. “Even more, I am excited to have an entire boutique property to ourselves.” The Hutton Hotel in Nashville Inside PPAI | Community PPAI: 111248 | ASI: 35375 | SAGE: 50327 | UPIC: ACCENTS | DC: 101273 888.287.7883 www.americanaccents.com Scan for more info!
