Business Networking at Villa Portofino

Professional Business Alliance

The Professional Business Alliance is an assembly of the finest service and business professionals in the desert, gathering to exchange ideas and build relationships with an emphasis on positive reinforcement and support. We have created a successful network of accomplished individuals, and provided an environment in which one can develop personal associations, with a structured and supportive system of giving and receiving business.

The PBA boasts a large membership of diverse firms and corporations, encompassing all aspects of the desert’s business sector. We seek to aid new enterprises, expand established companies and enhance the region’s development and job growth.

Business Networking in the Coachella Valley

To achieve success, your business must utilize effective marketing tools to create demand, strong sales to secure new customers and generate repeat business, and superior customer service that engenders loyalty, all of which are coordinated by way of meaningful communication and cooperative interaction. The PBA exists to encourage exceptional quality, as well as vigorous interaction and the active exchange of solid referrals, so members gain the opportunity to substantially increase their trade.

No business is an island, particularly in terms of marketing and sales. The PBA affords organizations the opportunity to intermingle with each other, establish formal relationships, and thereby increase member exposure and improve client base.

Membership in the PBA is only granted to businesses that have demonstrated they provide quality products and services, fair pricing and accountability. This selection process guarantees that when you connect with a Professional Business Alliance member you are connecting with the very best.
