Prep to Finish hits the Industry Show Circuit in March.

A Contractor’s Update

A busy month of March for the Prep to Finish Trainers. Having completed several student workshops from late February to mid-March, PtF turns it’s attention to the annual tradition of trekking out to paint and remodeling industry national events. It’s planes, trains and automobiles with this crew.

PDCA ’13 – St. Louis, MO

Kicking off the ’13 Trade Show Season, Scott and Todd flew out to St. Louis in early March for the PDCA National Expo to join PtF Full Program Sponsor, FestoolUSA, in their booth on the floor of the Expo Tradeshow. Shows like this are a pleasure for Prep to Finish to participate in, mostly because of the opportunity to connect in person with contractors from around the country and talk shop for a couple of days – and socialize. This year was exceptional in the amount of engagement between contractors and manufacturer reps – networking at its best.

JLC Live ’13 – Providence, RI

The beat goes on in March, as the PtF Trainers make the annual road trip to Providence, R.I. for one of the larger remodeling industry events in the country: JLC Live. Scott and Todd will fit in a student workshop on Tuesday, 3/19, then hit the road for Providence on 3/21. The intensity of the JLC show, and the opportunity to do paint tool demonstrations with painting and remodeling contractors makes it well worth the trip. We are excited to join FestoolUSA once again for this fun show, and look forward to hanging out with the hundreds of contractors who will be present.

Contractor Training Series to Launch in April

Prep to Finish formally launches it’s Contractor Training Workshop Series in April. This program will allow small groups of painting and remodeling contractors to come to our private facilities for intensive prep and painting training. Course outlines and pricing will be announced soon. There has already been a high level of interest expressed in this concept by contractors, so stay tuned for details!
