We love being part of this fantastic group of vendors who meets once a month to discuss how to grow our businesses and be the best we can be in our industry. So happy to share what we learn together to vendor peers in our 5th annual spring educational event at Terranea Resort. Here’s a highlight of this year’s brunch and presentation we held on May 8, 2018 at the award-winning and wonderful seaside venue.
