2016 Annual Conference – Save the Date!


Mark your calendars for PBH’s 2016 Annual Conference: The Consumer Connection scheduled for April 4-6 at the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia.  This 5-star hotel, nestled at the base of Camelback Mountain, is an intimate oasis inspired by the exotic locale of Spain’s Andalusia region.  Reminiscent of a picturesque Andalusian village, the resort features arching entryways, tranquil fountains and floral walkways.  



PBH’s daily room rate during the conference, $250, is almost 50% off the regular room rate of $459 plus no resort fees and complimentary Wi-Fi in every guestroom!  If you haven’t yet attended a PBH Annual Conference, 2016 is the PERFECT time to do so!  Registration opens Monday, August 3, 2015.


Celebrate Fruits & Veggies—More Matters® Month in September


This September, PBH is celebrating Fruits & Veggies—More Matters month with a ‘Grab N’ Go’ theme focused on quick and easy ways to include more fruits and veggies in daily meals and snacks.  A graphic, one for electronic posting and one for print, and sample social media posts and tips are now available on the site.
