About the RMG

The PPA’s Retail Marketing Group (RMG) is dedicated to promoting the magazine category to the retail sector.

The Retail Marketing Group’s objective is to champion the magazine category at retail; to act as a forum to communicate with retailers on any non-competitive needs and requirements; and to create opportunities for retailers to work with a collective group of publishers and distributors to promote the category in stores and to drive sales.

The group is made up of representatives from the PPA, member publishers and associate member distributors. The key representatives on the group are shown below.
