April 16th, 2014 by Editor

Solar Gard®, a manufacturer of architectural and automotive window films, photovoltaics and custom coatings, 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 Lawrence Constantin, director of sales and marketing – Americas.

WFM: Why did your company choose to sponsor International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™ 2014?

LC: Continuing to grow every year in significance, the International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off is such an important event for our industry. Dealer/installer training and education—as well as strengthening the collective window film community—are crucial to creating successful window film entrepreneurs, and every year we look forward to being part of this exciting time together.

WFM: What will your company be displaying for attendees to view at the 2014 show?

LC: We couldn’t be more thrilled to share with conference attendees our just-released Clearshield® Pro paint protection film (PPF). Now available in 60-inch rolls, this next-generation product can deliver seamless protection to more vehicle areas than ever before. We listened to the market in developing this product, making the material stronger, clearer and more form-fitting for easier installation and greater protection across the entire vehicle.

We also recently announced availability of three new VLTs (12, 30 and 45) in our popular Galaxie automotive film series.

Additionally, we encourage attendees to stop by our booth and learn more about our comprehensive architectural film portfolio, now including Solar Gard Ecolux 70 Low-E (a sustainable, all-season low-E window film for homes and commercial properties), as well as business expansion opportunities with our ComputerCut® software.

WFM: Do you have any Show Specials you wish to announce or share early?

LC: We’ll definitely be offering some attractive incentives on both our automotive and architectural films—start planning now to stop by our booth and save!

WFM: Why is an event like the International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off important to the window film industry?

LC: The WFCT is where the window film industry comes together. Dealer attendees can connect with manufacturers and provide feedback on products and resources, as well as build relationships with fellow business owners. It’s the perfect forum for window film professionals to share installation techniques, local marketing ideas and advice, and their own unique experience in operating a successful business operation.

WFM: Does your company have any advice for the Tint-Off contestants?

LC: We wish all the competitors the best of luck, and can’t wait to witness the talent showcased each year in the Tint-Off (especially with the new PPF competition!). We wish everyone a very busy and profitable season, remembering that every car that comes in or architectural project you’re awarded is a new opportunity to perfect your technique and improve your speed!


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.
