June 9th, 2011 by Editor

The 2011 International Window Film Tint-Off™ is receiving contestant registrations from around the world. While a majority of the participants hail from the United States, technicians from around the globe are throwing their hat into the ring and hoping to walk away with these top honors.

With the prize money increasing to $10,000 for the top spot, there are more reasons than ever to compete in the preliminary contest to be held on September 15, 2011 at the Memphis Cook Convention Center. Educational sessions and exhibits on the show floor make attendance at this event a solid business decision for anyone looking to improve or grow their business in the window film industry.

Kurt Groenendaels of Cf-Windowfilm Bvba in Limburg, Belgium is a 13-year veteran of the window film industry. Mr. Groenendaels has competed in a number of tinting competitions and placed first in the European tint-off in Belguim in 2007. When asked why he wanted to compete, Groenendaels said, “I like the spirit of competition and the chance to meet other people from the trade. During the years I have learned a lot from these competitions and there is always room for improvement.”

Each contestant has his or her own reasons why they want to win the title, “World’s Greatest Tinter.” In addition to the $10,000 prize money, the winner receives extensive media coverage and press releases; use of the Tint-Off Winner logo on stationery, business cards and advertising for one year; use of the 2011 International Window Film Tint-Off and Conference logo for an unlimited time; and a congratulations ad and coverage of the victor in Window Film magazine.

If you think you have what it takes to compete globally, there’s still time to register.
