PostNet, a global leader in high-quality printing and shipping solutions, celebrated franchise owners, welcomed vendors and discussed future endeavors at THRIVE 2022, PostNet’s annual convention held recently at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas.

“Thrive isn’t just a conference theme for PostNet and its franchise owners, it’s a mindset,” said Bill McPherson, vice president of franchise development. “To say that the last few years have been challenging is an understatement, yet PostNet not only faced these challenges head-on, it overcame them and continued to grow. It feels good to be able to come together and celebrate the franchise owners and corporate staff responsible for this success.”
