Although every day we compete with each other for the attention of customers, each of us has one goal, which unites us - we want to build the image of an advertising product as an effective marketing tool. I am proud that together we shape good practices, educate the market and fight for the preservation of certain standards. I say goodbye to the old Board with nostalgia and welcome the new one, hoping to face future challenges,” says dr Edyta Lisowska, President of PIAP.
