Solar Gard Moves Up to Sapphire Sponsor for WFCT 2016

May 25th, 2016 by Casey Flores

Solar Gard is expanding its presence at the annual International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™ (WFCT) this year. The San Diego-based company has become a Sapphire Sponsor. WFCT, set to be held October 5 – 7 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk, will include educational seminars, an exhibition hall and the attendee-favorite Tint-Off™ competitions.

Window Film magazine spoke with Lawrence Constantin, director of sales and marketing for the Americas, on what the company will bring to the event this year.

WFM: Why did you decide to sponsor WFCT™ 2016 this year?

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 do you find to be the most beneficial part of being at WFCT™?

LC: As a leading window film manufacturer, supporting WFCT is a key way to move our industry forward. It’s very important to us that we show dealers across the world that Solar Gard believes in them and their future.

WFM: Describe WFCT™ in one word.

LC: Collaborative. 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: What’s the top product Solar Gard will be showcasing at the event?

LC: In addition to the wildly popular Clearshield® Pro – our next-generation True Hard Coated paint protection film (PPF) that delivers seamless and unprecedented protection to more vehicle areas than ever before – we invite dealers to check out our new Panorama® CX Ceramic Architectural Series. We will also be showcasing our latest extension of the Solar Gard Ultra Performance Nano-Ceramic Automotive Series, Ultra Performance Plus 80. On-site demos will be conducted on all our new products throughout the show, so make sure to come by and try your hand at installing them!

WFM: Will you be offering any specials?

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!
