I always look forward to seeing the final project. Each edition, I am certain the MMA’s annual magazine will be perfect. We have been courted by other publishing companies – but I said no way; I love working with DEL!

I’d also like to thank all the staff of DEL Communications Inc. and S.G. Bennett Marketing Services who helped develop [the MRFA directory] from an idea to the glossy publication you have in your hands today. A lot of time and effort was spent on their part to ensure the MRFA’s message was clear, as well as providing a well-laid-out showcase of the exceptional restaurants we have here in Manitoba.

I could not be more pleased with the end product which we received. I literally had goose bumps on my arms as I opened the NLCA Construction Journal for the first time! You have met and exceeded my vision for this, our inaugural publication. It has been a pleasure working with your team on this project. I am not sure how we are going to top this for next year, but I am sure with the dedication and commitment from DEL Communications and the NLCA we will. Again, thank you to all of DEL’s staff for a job well done.

Many thanks to DEL Communications for creating this magazine for us for the past four years, as we are very pleased with the professional quality of the publications.

The publications team at DEL has been a dream to work with and their professional organization and writing skills have made my job very easy.
