October 23, 2017 // // MOKENA, IL - Creative Colors International, the nation’s leading on-site repair and restoration franchise, hosted the most successful Creative Colors International Conference and Awards Gala to date at the DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel & Conference Center in Downers Grove, Illinois from September 22nd – September 23, 2017.
