Join PDBA? Of course! PDBA has been a great resource. PDBA offers free listings on Explore the Pearl website, various levels of participation in Pearl events and a Pearl Magazine with advertising available. All have been successful for FlairWalk. Certainly our selection as ‘Emerging Retailer of the Year – 2015’ was in part due to benefits deriving from our PDBA membership. Thanks PDBA!”

Valuable Connections and Resources

Joining the PDBA was one of the most beneficial actions I took when launching Pregame in the Pearl District. I’ve made valuable connections that have led to strategic partnerships and new clients, returning my investment within months. The resources provided by the PDBA are refreshingly simple, current, and above all, effective for marketing, networking, and building a strong reputation in Portland.”
– Ciara Pressler, Founder, Pregame
