Graphics installers meet industry leaders and receive hands-on learning opportunities on the show floor
The Professional Decal Application Alliance (PDAA) is headed back to the 2014 SGIA Expo (Las Vegas, October 22–24) for three fully loaded days of unbeatable presentations, training and networking events for graphics installers. Whether you're a novice installer or an industry pro, there is something for everyone at this year's sold-out trade show.
Beginning Wednesday morning, get free, one-on-one industry information at the PDAA homebase on the show floor — the PDAA Graphics Installation Zone. Meet with the experts, gain new trade knowledge and expand your business. Focused sessions provide a hands-on learning experience and discuss a wide array of subjects, including:
Specialized film applications
Automotive color change
Innovative installation tools
High-spec, high-performance vinyls
PDAA Master Certification
Each day of the Expo will also feature two sold-out vehicle wrap training classes taught by PDAA Master-Certified Instructors. Wrap Like a Pro (beginner to intermediate) teaches the "right" way to install vehicle wraps, followed by hands-on training to practice what they've learned. Extreme Vehicle Wrapping (intermediate to advanced) explores advanced techniques for wrapping extreme shapes such as bumpers, mirrors, helmets and more, and will give graphics installers the opportunity to install car-wrapping vinyl on the bumpers and mirrors of several cars.
Thursday kicks off right with the Keynote Breakfast, where Stephen Shapiro will show you how to get better answers with better questions in "Innovate Where You Differentiate." And before heading out on the town that evening, stop by the PDAA Graphics & Installation Reception for the chance to meet your fellow professionals and grow your business network.
Attendance is by invitation only.
