Annual Conference App Now Available


A mobile app is now available for download as a way to help registered attendees navigate PBH's 2015 Annual Conference: The Consumer Connection, March 16-18 in Scottsdale, Arizona. The easy-to-use app, which works on most iOS, Android, and Window devices, will keep attendees up-to-date, connected and informed before, during and after the conference.

The free app will afford attendees personalized access to the conference with these special features:

  • Know where you’re going and where you’re supposed to be with your own in-app agenda and navigation map.
  • Swap contact information and instantly communicate with a fellow attendee with the private messaging feature.
  • Gain access to exclusive downloadable content from presenters and sponsors with the click of a button.
  • Get more of what you like and less of what you don’t by sharing your feedback about sessions, speakers, and special events.
  • Stay in the loop with a tailored social activity feed based on your mobile app interactions.

National Nutrition Month® Contest


In support and celebration of the “Bite into A Healthy Lifestyle” theme for National Nutrition Month® in March, PBH is celebrating with our “Healthy Fruit & Veggie Bites” contest. This consumer-focused contest will run on our Instagram channel, March 9-22.


The contest will highlight PBH’s featured fruit and vegetable for March, honeydew and asparagus.  Original healthy recipes featuring the fruit or vegetable can be uploaded to our Instagram channel, March 9-15 with voting occurring March 16-22.  Each recipe ‘like’ will count as one vote; the winner will be announced on March 23 via PBH’s social media channels and will receive a Nutribullet® to help make healthy and great tasting smoothies, sauces and soups.


To learn more about the contest, or to have the contest promo graphic sent to you, contact our Social Media Manager, Kevonna Robinson.
