Become a Sponsor at Commercial Contractor Connect, and you’ll spend three days with a hand-picked selection of top commercial painting contractor owners and executives ready to discover new products and technologies – and committed to private, pre-scheduled meetings with each Sponsor.
Proven Success
CCC is patterned after our highly successful Industrial Contractor Connect event. Sponsors call it “better than any trade show” for gaining customer insight; learning about new opportunities, and closing business. Contractors prize the opportunity to build close connections with C-suite execs at their suppliers and trade tips and advice with their peers.
How it Works
Recreation. Contractors and Sponsors mix over meals and a choice of world-class recreational activities (golf, fishing, kayaking, etc.)
Education. Q&A with the contractors, and Charter Sponsors lead panel discussions on best practices, new technology and emerging trends in commercial painting
Sales. Each Sponsor gets private, pre-scheduled meetings with the Contractor attendees

Sponsor Feedback from Prior
"Contractor Connect" Events


“We didn’t think we needed help to talk to customers, but Contractor Connect was more cost-effective than us doing our own event. We gained valuable insight on what was important to the contractor, strengthened relationships, and learned about new opportunities. We’ve sponsored every year since.”
Doni Riddle, The Sherwin-Williams Company

“Contractor Connect is a great event for PPG. The networking and one-on-one meetings with the contractors are extremely valuable; we closed business as a direct result.”
Scott Doering, PPG

“You told me this would be a great event. You undersold it. It is a fabulous event. Let’s do it again.”
Chase Bean, President, Tnemec Company to Brion Palmer, CEO, TPC

“Much better than the interaction you get at a trade show.”
Eric Rennerfeldt, Graco Inc.

“Contractor Connect 1 was great. Connect 2 was better, and Connect 3 even better. I look forward to 4. Outstanding event!”
Kevin Coleman, Wagner-Titan
