Who We Are

About Us

Proforma Mega Marketing Solutions is your hospitality partner. We have worked with over 40 hotels and resorts in the US and across the Caribbean over the past four years, growing by referrals from our client partners, who are like family to us. We believe we give added value because of the following four areas of strength:

1TECHNOLOGY

TECHNOLOGY – as the technology and business success leader in the industry, our business management technology platform is fully integrated with many of our promotional products, printing, and packaging distributors. Since 2015, we have invested over $15 million dollars in our Provision and ProStores technology platforms and with over 85+ in-house technology team members, we continue to ensure our technology is cutting edge. Our technology allows us to do real time reporting and analytics, and integrate our system with our supplier partners and shipping carriers. This increases our efficiency, and lowers our cost of doing business. We always pass on these savings to our clients.

2 RELATIONSHIPS

RELATIONSHIPS – we develop close relationships with all of our clients and get to know their vision for their brand, and find solutions to bring their visions to life, while always protecting their brand integrity.

3HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY & BRANDING EXPERTISE

HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY & BRANDING EXPERTISE – More than half of our current clients are in the hospitality industry. Over the years we have built up strong partnerships with industry vendors, and our extensive experience in the industry and working in the Caribbean has contributed to our success in this area.

4 ONE SOURCE

This excellent buying power and our strong vendor partnerships are how we are able to ensure we give you the best available options at the best prices, and ensure your brand is consistent across all collateral. With over 60 years of combined experience in the industry, our team is ready to partner with you to achieve your goals.Many of our partners love that we are their one source for all of their branding needs.

Creativity and consumer experiences have traced her path for more than 12 years, a path that she cultivated in Venezuela working for some of the most important mass consumption brands in Latin America.

In this way, finding creative solutions that give brands the push they need to differentiate themselves and generate empathy with their target market, is part of her contribution, with good humor and sometimes, some craziness.
