The Recipients of the “Awards of Distinction”
BEST Suppliers & Salesperson Awards for 2016”

Presented in conjunction with
GreenTrade Expo 2017…


Even though the Gala had to compete for attention with Valentine's Day this year the “Awards of Distinction” Gala, presented by Connon CBV was an overwhelming success.

And for those who attended, there was plenty of excitement as the awards were presented with lots of laughs and the humorous antics of Bruce Morton and Ed Hansen as they shared the MC duties for the evening.

After the Gala, we hosted a Vegas-style Casino Evening, presented by Gifford Associates, which featured gaming, a great DJ, finger food, networking, good times – and everyone had lots of fun! 

Special thanks and our appreciation to the sponsors who made it all possible…
