PCA Painting Contractors 2020 Expo, Make the most of Expo 2020

Make the Most of EXPO 2020

EXPO 2020 kicks off Feb. 19 in Phoenix-Glendale, Arizona. EXPO is the place to learn from the best in the industry, make hundreds of new business connections, gain applicable advice for growing your business and have your top industry questions answered. 

Check out five tips for making the most of your time spent on the ground at EXPO.

Ask Your Top Industry Questions

You’ll spend your week surrounded by peers, many of which are contractors having similar experiences as you. EXPO provides a non-competitive environment to speak openly with others and get answers to your top questions. Our daily brain meld sessions give you dedicated time to share your ideas, challenges and solutions on a variety of topics. 

Have questions about the industry as a whole, PCA membership and opportunities at EXPO? Be sure to find a PCA staff member at the venue and they’ll be happy to help you. 

Attend Our Networking Events

In addition to networking at breakfast, lunch and during breaks, you’ll have dedicated conversation time with our nightly networking events. On the first night of EXPO, Benjamin Moore hosts an evening reception at the venue. On the second night of the EXPO, Sherwin-Williams hosts an off-site (transportation provided!) evening reception. Be sure to join us at these receptions to make new connections. 

Join Us for Our New Workshops

We’re offering four interactive workshops at EXPO this year. Each workshop is designed to teach you new concepts and strategies, then guide you in developing your own business plan to implement when you return to the office. 

Attend the Trade Show

On the second day of EXPO, 60+ companies join us for our trade show. This is the opportunity to get a look at the most up-to-date technology, supplies and equipment in the industry. You’ll experience demonstrations and even some free samples along the way. 

Build Your Schedule Beforehand

While we don’t require you to select your sessions before EXPO, we recommend picking out the sessions you plan to attend before arriving. This gives you more time to look at the objectives for each session and helps you make the choice that best meets your business needs. Check out the full schedule here. 

Catch you in Phoenix!
