Interwest Distribution Co./Interwest Tools, a distributor of window film, paint protection film, vinyl graphics and vehicle wrap installation tools, has signed on to be a Sponsor of the 2014 International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™ (WFCT). The event is set to be held October 7-9, 2014, at the Baltimore Convention Center and will include educational seminars, an exhibition hall and the attendee-favorite Tint-Off™ competitions. The host hotel is the Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor at Camden Yards.
During the conference, attendees will be able to take part in educational seminars by industry leaders and expert speakers, network on the Exhibition/Extravaganza show floor with window film and paint protection film manufacturers and suppliers, as well as view three Tint-Off divisions.
We spoke with Patric Fransko, chief marketing officer.
WFM: Why did your company choose to sponsor the 2014 International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™?
PF:Interwest Tools wants to support the industry that makes our business run. The International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off brings together a great group of industry professionals for education, networking and fun. I have attended this event for many years and the quality of the show and the people attending gets better every year. We wanted to be a part of supporting this event and the window film and paint protection industries.
WFM: What will your company be displaying for attendees to view at the 2014 show?
PF: Interwest Tools will be displaying and demonstrating many of the tools that we offer online. We also plan to introduce a couple of new products that will be exclusive to Interwest Tools that we think everyone will love.
WFM: Do you have any show specials you wish to announce early?
PF: We are currently working with several manufacturers to make sure that we bring an extremely attractive show special to the event. It is still too soon to release the details, but we promise it will be worth the wait!
WFM: Why is an event like the International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off important to the window film industry?
PF: An event like this brings our industry together to increase our education and share ideas. It enables attendees the opportunity to speak directly to their suppliers about their wants and needs and allows the suppliers to gather unfiltered feedback from a variety of industry professionals. I often say that attendees learn as much from each other at events like this than they learn from anything presented on the stage. It is a great gathering of business owners, installers and suppliers that allows everyone to learn from each other to propel this industry forward.
WFM: Does your company have any advice for the Tint-Off contestants?
PF: First, Interwest Tools wants to wish the best of luck to all the competitors. The best advice that I can give is to try and relax and do what you do every day. I have often witnessed very good installers change their technique or method for the competition. However, the people I have watched win these competitions in many areas seem to just relax and get down to doing what they do back home every day to be successful.
Now in its 14th year, WFCT will combine Window Film magazine and the entire film industry for three days of networking opportunities and informative educational sessions in one convenient location.
