Golbon Fall Member Conference and Awards

Golbon hosted the 2019 Fall Member Conference and Awards at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa October 15 – 17, 2019 in Palm Springs, California. Golbon distributor members and supplier partners came together to engage in networking and business-building opportunities.

The Golbon achievement awards kicked off the conference during breakfast. Attendees then began their first busy day of appointments as suppliers and distributors came prepared to discuss new business opportunities. Barry Friends, Co-Founder and Partner at Pentallect Inc., presented at lunch providing Golbon members valuable information regarding the state of today’s industry. On the show floor, attendees were excited to see that Golbon Convenience Store Services brought back the Pit Stop area where you could find all your favorite c-store treats: hot and iced coffee, frozen beverages, irresistible donuts, prepared sandwiches, pizza, roller grill favorites, ice cream and more.
