Bodypoint Honors its Partners
Bodypoint is grateful for the support and enthusiasm we receive every day from all our partners. At this year’s Bodypoint Partner Event, held in March 2020 at the International Seating Symposium in Vancouver, Canada, we celebrated together and gave out awards in a variety of categories to our international distributors and U.S. sales representatives for their hard work.
