Grand Hotel Marriott

Contractor Connect, featuring some of the largest painting contractors in the United States, will take place Nov. 8-10 at the historic Grand Hotel Marriott Resort, Golf Club and Spa, in Point Clear, Alabama.

Contractor Connect is a hosted-buyer event that will provide key industry information and prescheduled one-on-one meetings between painting contractors and suppliers.

Panel Discussions, Activities

In addition to the private meetings, the curriculum will offer three panel discussions composed of participating companies aimed at giving contractors the latest updates and vital information on coating technology, equipment and OSHA's new beryllium rule. The panels will be videotaped and converted into webinars available to the entire PaintSquare audience in early 2018.

Contractor Connect will also feature a variety of networking activities, including an organized fishing charter into Mobile Bay and a special contractor vs. supplier, Ryder Cup-format golf tournament.

This very unique golf tournament, sponsored by BrandSafway, will be played on the Lakewood Golf Club, part of the legendary Robert Trent Jones Alabama Golf Trail.

"Contractor Connect helps fulfill this mission by bringing these two parties together to make new industry contacts, foster business opportunities and have some fun in the process.”

“The contractors that have committed to attending Contractor Connect represent more than $50 million in coatings and equipment buying power, according to our research data,” Palmer added. “The resort setting offered by the Grand Hotel Marriott provides a dynamic environment for networking in a relaxed setting and deal-making opportunities."

Companies still have the opportunity to participate in the inaugural Contractor Connect, but space is becoming limited. Contact Bernadette Landon at 412-697-0184 or via email at blandon@technologypub.com for more information.
