Secured in the final quarter of 2016, the contract will see the agency lead a series of incentive trips for the business that is expected to be worth approximately £1.5m for the agency.

The deal means XSEM will continue to deliver PPG’s Golf Masters competition, which has been organised and executed by XSEM for the last nine years. The agency will also continue to deliver PPG's Trade Elite loyalty programme, which has been hosted in different countries, including Brazil and Mauritius. As part of the new agreement, XSEM will organise the PPG VIP and PPG 100 Club.
