CONTRACTOR CONNECT: PROVIDING ACCESS TO QUALIFIED BUYERS
Contractor Connect is a three-day “Hosted Buyer” event for the protective and marine coatings industry that brings together qualified buyers (contractors) and sellers (suppliers) through a variety of networking activities and prescheduled individual meetings.
Over the course of the event, major industrial coating contractors and suppliers will have substantial opportunities to further develop personal and professional relationships. These enhanced contacts will lead to new business and the growth of existing customer accounts.
“At first, we were hesitant to sign up for Contractor Connect, because we didn't think we needed third-party help
to talk to customers. But after crunching the numbers, we realized that Contractor Connect sponsorship was
more cost-effective than doing our own event. We signed up, and it was a success. We gained valuable insight on
what was important to the contractor; we strengthened existing relationships; and we learned about important
new opportunities. We've sponsored every year since. It's a great event.”
