SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA (June 24, 2010) – Counselor "Top 40" distributor, HALO Branded Solutions (ASI 356000; PPAI 106462), concluded their National Sales Meeting with record attendance. Nearly two hundred account executives from the industry-leading firm attended the four-day event, with one hundred and twenty top industry supplier firms exhibiting at a company-only trade show at the picturesque Rancho Bernardo Inn.
