The Professional Pricing Society concluded its Spring Conference in San Francisco with presentations from leaders in the pricing profession.

The Professional Pricing Society (PPS) has concluded the world’s largest pricing conference on May 5th at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco.

Pricing Society president Eric Mitchell said, "The interest in pricing and its role in the success of corporations today continues to increase worldwide. As a result, top management focus on its pricing function has never been greater than it is now.” Price management has grown consistently by double digits since 2000. As a result, The Pricing Society now has triple the number of members it had four years ago.

PPS is known for presenting the leading pricing experts, practitioners and the largest pricing software show in the world. Headlining the conference was the dynamic Thomas Winninger, author of “Price Wars” and “Full Price” and his latest book, “Bullseye.” Also contributing to the success of the program was Laura Preslan of Deloitte, Reed Holden of Holden Advisors, Frank Luby of Simon-Kucher & Partners and presenters at the 18 popular breakout sessions.

The PPS conference has become the marketplace to find technology solutions for pricing challenges. Leading technology firms showcased their products; eClerx, Manugistics, Metreo, Rapt, QL2, Vendavo, Vistaar and Zilliant presented their products to almost 500 attendees at the conference.

The next PPS event will be “Pricing in Paris, Pan European Pricing Solutions” in Paris, France June 14-16, 2006. The conference will start with 3 one-day pre-conference certified workshops. Again PPS will present a program designed to specifically meet the needs of the European pricer. You can see the entire program and a list of the current Multinational Corporate members on our Pricing Conference webpage.
