Vendor Prospectus (PDF Format)

Your products may withstand the tests of time but what about your professional and personal relationships?

Nothing replaces the strength of a memorialist’s trust in the knowledge that a vendor partner will deliver on their promises. That is why professional and personal relationships are the cornerstone of the monument industry. And at a time when it is increasingly more difficult for manufacturers, suppliers and wholesalers to differentiate by price alone, the value of a solid, long-term relationship is immeasurable.

In 2012, the MBNA JAM with the California Monument Builders and the Pacific Northwest Monument Builders Association can help you enhance and develop those relationships by bringing you face-to-face with hundreds of memorialists from throughout the United States and Canada, making it the most effective and efficient use of your time and resources. It is an excellent opportunity for you to meet with key decision makers with purchasing power, develop new customer relationships and boost existing ones.
