Vincent Mallardi, Chair of the
Printing Brokerage Buyers Association International introduces Honorees.

Old Town Scottsdale AZ US, May 7th, 2014, 12:30 p.m

Alohas! Once again it is a special honor for me personally to recognize the unique contributions made by printing intermediaries here on America’s mainland.

On this 30th anniversary of the Printing Brokerage Buyers Association International, we are recognizing the 2014 Printing Intermediary of the Year and two PBBA Superstar Honorees.

Together, at this first-ever Print + Promo Summit event, we professional printing broker resellers, along with our esteemed and vital trade suppliers, express our support for all 14,874 peers across this continent who contribute to a more efficient marketplace, and more satisfied end-users, today and throughout the decades.

Congratulations and “mahalos” to the Honorees and to all who are here in Scottsdale today!
