"I'm thrilled to partner with PTPA Media on their tech-focused campaigns," says Tech expert Marc Saltzman.

With summer just around the corner and so many great new tech products on the market, how does a family choose which is best for them? It’s not easy to decide, but PTPA Media together with Marc Saltzman, are here to help make technology purchasing decisions easy.

PTPA Media is North America’s largest parent tester community – a credible third party resource for parents with over 40,000 volunteer parent testers. PTPA is proud to join forces with Marc Saltzman, one of North America’s most recognizable tech experts specializing in consumer electronics, internet trends and interactive entertainment as well as the author of 15 books. He also contributes to nearly 50 high-profile publications in Canada and the U.S.

"I'm thrilled to partner with PTPA Media on their tech-focused campaigns," says Saltzman. "I was honoured to be a judge and I enjoyed seeing how other Canadian families also rated these tech products. I’m certain the winners will benefit from the prestigious PTPA seal, which serves as a coveted endorsement many parents look for before buying new products," adds Saltzman.

“Seeing the PTPA Winner's Seal on a product package or website helps consumers identify products that have been tested and recommended by their peers. It's like shopping with your best friend,” says PTPA Founder and CEO, Sharon Vinderine.

Since 2008, PTPA has evaluated thousands of products and services from leading manufacturers and emerging brands. Parents evaluated these products in their own homes and this allows for PTPA Award-winners to be selected based on merit as well as consumer experience, rather than just commercial considerations.

PTPA Media is a well-known and trusted source by media for credible and reliable recommendations for their audiences. Recognized TV personality, PTPA Founder and CEO Sharon Vinderine has presented PTPA Award-winners on over 50 morning shows including the Rachael Ray Show, Fox and Friends, Canada AM and Global and has been featured in the National Post.
