Thank you, Chicago: The #PPSCHI18 Recap

On May 1-4, 2018 PPS hosted the Pricing event of the season in Rosemont, IL, the 29th Annual Spring Pricing Workshops & Conference! Well-over 500 registered attendees descended on the Windy City for another wonderful Pricing Conference event. We were thrilled to return to the luxurious Loews Chicago O'Hare hotel, the host location for all of the Pricing Workshops, Keynotes, Breakout Sessions Town Hall events and more. On Tuesday and Wednesday, we welcomed pricing practitioners from across the country for two, full days of Pricing Workshops. Building on the lessons learned, attendees had the option to pass the quiz in order to receive Certified Pricing Professional (CPP) Credits toward their designation.       Attendees heard from dynamic Keynote Presenters on the Pricing Conference days Thursday and Friday, absorbing important pricing strategies and ways to capitalize on existing business models. Another highlight was the return of the Town Hall Sessions. This exclusive opportunity gave practitioners more time with our expert presenters and a deep-dive into their action plans. During the evening there was time to explore the beautiful city of Chicago, dine at the delicious restaurants around the Loews Chicago Hotel, and of course, interact with the PPS Team. We had a blast - and have the photos and hashtag traction (search #PPSCHI18 across social media platforms) to prove it!
