“This was our first-ever meeting of the Federated Alliance and The Pronto Network and it was a very productive week of working together and setting our agenda for the next year,” said Larry Pavey, CEO of The Group. “At The Group, we value our relationships with all of our supplier partners, and we feel it’s crucial to acknowledge those who exceed expectations. We extend our congratulations to this year’s award winners and express our gratitude for their outstanding support and partnership.”

Over 1,000 members, vendors and associates of The Group attended last week’s conference and expo. Attendees participated in general sessions, informational meetings and networking events, as well as participating in one-on-one sessions and a vendor expo featuring over 150 booths.
