International Window Film Conference Full Seminar Schedule Now Available Online

June 7th, 2012 by Editor

The full seminar schedule is now available online for the International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off (IWFC). The IWFC is set to be held September 20-22, 2012 at the Kentucky International Convention Center and the Hyatt Regency Louisville in Louisville, Ky. The Exhibition/Extravaganza, including the two Tint-Off™ competitions, will be held September 21-22.

Special sessions include a keynote presentation by Captain Richard Phillips, who was captured by Somali pirates in 2009 when they hijacked the ship he was commanding, the Maersk Alabama. Captain Richard Phillips is scheduled to speak Friday morning about the vital importance of leadership and teamwork. A “floating CEO” in charge of the day-to-day operations of a multi-million dollar ship, Captain Phillips has a compelling story and valuable lessons for anyone involved in running a business today.

Kelly McDonald, a favorite from last year, will be sharing with attendees how to keep their customers coming back for more. McDonald will speak Saturday afternoon following the close of the Automotive and Architectural Tint-Off™.

IWFA accreditation classes will be offered as well. The IWFA will hold review and testing for the basic solar control accreditation, safety/security accreditation, automotive accreditation and advanced solar control accreditation Thursday afternoon. Interested participants must register prior to the event with the IWFA and pay the required fees, after which the IWFA will send the educational study manuals to review before testing.

“For our IWFA members, the IWFC event in Louisville, Kentucky is a natural extension of the many benefits of membership in our trade association. A very key benefit is to learn, first hand, how the IWFA supports our industry and moves it forward in a number of areas,” says Jack Mundy, chairperson of the IWFA’s member action committee. “It is also an opportunity to earn important accreditations, share information with industry experts, see new products and get involved with the business of our industry. For non-members, it brings the opportunity to see why being a member of the IWFA can help make them more successful and it also offers an easy venue to join and be a part of supporting our industry. There is also a great opportunity to network throughout the IWFC. Last, and certainly not least, it is a reality that tinters like to compete, and we are offering both an automotive and flat glass Tint-Off competition this year.  ”
