Toronto, Ontario — April 9, 2017 — PBE Distributors held its annual Spring Trade Show at Toronto Airport Marriot recently, bringing together dozens of top manufacturers under one roof. PBE Distributors is part of Color Compass Corporation.
In addition to the displays and equipment demos, two celebrities made appearances at this year’s show: Ryan Evans of the TV show Counting Cars and Ron “Flea” Fleenor. Evans and Fleenor demonstrated their pinstriping skills at the Matrix Finishes booth and took a few moments to chat with attendees. Fleenor also lent a hand to draw the winning ticket for the House of Kolor – 60th anniversary Sata 5000B spray gun. The winner was Eric Charbonneau of Bertrand Supplies.
The PBE Distributor’s Spring Trade Show is geared towards jobbers, designed to give them the latest and most up-to-date information on new products and equipment now available for their collision repair customers. According to a statement from PBE Distributors, the show regularly attracts jobbers from all over Eastern and Atlantic Canada.
