Igloo’s Chief Marketing Officer, Brian Garofalow states, “Industry Resource is a great destination for brands like Igloo to connect to a network of quality vendors for nearly any need we have.  That is crucial as the pandemic affects in-person tradeshows, conferences and interactions where we would normally be meeting prospective resources.”
