The theme of the 2018 convention is "Visionary Leadership." The goal of this event is to help you approach future in a strategic manner and share your vision with others in an effective way to reach those goals. We have carefully chosen the speakers and trainers to inspire you and to give you the new tools you need to compete in today's marketplace. You will take home ideas that you can put to use right away to benefit your business and career.
A key element of the convention is a trade show displaying and demonstrating the latest tools, systems, equipment and services to the wall and ceiling industry. It is a one-stop source for information to those who want to stay abreast of the latest products to help enhance their businesses. To the exhibitors, it is precious chance for face-to-face time with existing and new customers in a relaxed, fun environment.
The new benefits offered to exhibitors this year include:
- Facilitated, pre-arranged appointments in the exhibit hall Thursday afternoon.
- Lead retrieval capabilities.
- Badge scanning.
- Fun gamification -- attendees will be awarded points for visiting booths.
- Use new event app to arrange meetings outside official events and communicate with customer before and after the show.
In addition to the trade show, the convention offers educational sessions providing the latest must-know information and ample opportunities to connect with industry peers and partners at meetings. The 2018 Outstanding Project of the Year Awards will be announced at the opening ceremonies as we celebrate the contributions of our industry.
