The Professional Pricing Society (PPS) Story
For decades professional associations around the world have dramatically assisted the growth of major industries, while contributing to the betterment of society in general. PPS carries on this tradition by acting as the voice of the pricing profession and providing valuable pricing strategies, publications, research and other pricing resources. Founded in 1984, it now serves thousands of members, representing all leading industries and over 50 countries.
The Professional Pricing Society’s mission is to nurture a growing community of pricing professionals committed to disseminating pricing expertise throughout the business world. We do this by providing a multi-platform forum through which exceptionally talented and creative experts can exchange cutting edge pricing strategies, tactics and technology. In short, we connect great ideas with great people.
Currently, PPS produces three major annual pricing conferences in Europe and North America. Each conference also houses a technology hall where sponsors display the latest in Pricing Solutions software. PPS also offers more than two dozen, full-day training workshops every year, taught by leaders in the pricing community. These workshops serve as the foundation for PPS’s Certified Pricing Professional (CPP) designation, our state of the art pricing certification program. Candidates may be certified after mastering a multi-stage curriculum followed by rigorous testing. Successful CPPs have acquired the core knowledge which not only places them in the top rungs of the pricing field, but also gives them the tools to enhance substantially their own careers.
To encourage further the exchange of innovative pricing strategies and ideas, the Society publishes an eight-page monthly newsletter and a 36-page quarterly journal to our worldwide membership. Further, the PPS website is a central resource for state-of-the-art pricing knowledge and hosts a job site where professionals can post or review new opportunities in the industry.
