STRONG EUROPEAN ASSOCIATION NEEDED The particular importance of international industry associations manifested itself not only in their strong showing. Michael Freter expressly emphasised their significance in his opening speech in the scope of the press conference: “Actually there is also a need for a strong European association of the promotional products industry. Actually. Because we need associations who also make their voice heard politically and in dialogue with the advertising industry. This is the only way to present the strength of our advertising medium even better in the broader market of the advertising industry”. < PSI Journal 3/2016 www.psi-network.de FRENCH ASSOCIATION INVITED GUESTS TO THE APÉRIPUB Whilst the space behind the PSI Institute – Competence Area in Hall 9 began to fill with party goers of the PSI AFTER WORK Party, French exhibitors and suppliers met at the Apéripub right next door in the Executive Lounge.
