On April 6, PBE Distributors, a subsidiary of Color Compass Corporation, hosted its 2017 Spring Trade Show.
This time, the event took place at the Toronto Airport Marriott Hotel at 901 Dixon Road, Mississauga, Ont.
As in prior years, the event featured an array of collision industry vendors displaying their wares, everything from refinish products to spray apparatus, measuring equipment, tools and body repair products. As was the case in 2016, PBE asked some of its jobber members to invite their collision shop customers to the event. By the time the numbers were in, almost 300 attendees had come through the door, making it the biggest PBE Distributors Spring Trade Show yet.
Star attractions included legendary pinstripers Ryan Evans of Count’s Kustoms in Las Vegas, and Ron “Flea” Fleenor of Fleaz Color Faktory in Rock Hill, S.C.
There was also onsite catering to enable attendees to grab a bite during the event, as well as the customary raffle draw. All in all, it was a fabulous event with some great products on display and a plethora of industry professionals—from across the country as well as the collision industry spectrum.
