New Commercial Industry Event Announced


Technology Publishing Co., home of the Journal of Protective Coatings and Linings, PaintSquare Press, PaintSquare Daily News, Paint BidTracker and Water BidTracker, is announcing the launch of a new event.

Following the lead of its successful Contractor Connect, a hosted-buyer event for the protective and marine coatings industry, TPC is announcing Commercial Contractor Connect, a premiere event for commercial painting contractors and their suppliers.

This inaugural event will take place Oct. 19-22 at the Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast, Florida.

“Our Connect events have been extremely generative for both the contractor and manufacturers participants,” said Brion Palmer, CEO of Technology Publishing.

“The benefits of participation include stronger relationships with key industry executives, business intelligence into market trends and dynamics as it relates specifically to their company, critical insight into new technologies and new business opportunities.”

At Commercial Contractor Connect, an exclusive group of the nation’s top commercial painting contractors will join executives from their suppliers for three days of networking, recreation and education, and will include private meetings between each sponsor and contractor.

In addition to the industry meetings, multiple expert-lead panel discussions will also take place, focusing on best practices, new technology and emerging trends in the commercial painting industry.

And, to top it all off, contractors and sponsors will mix over meals and recreational activities such as golf, fishing and more.

How to Participate

Commercial Contractor Connect Sponsorship is limited to 20 companies that sell products or services to commercial painting contractors.

Charter Platinum, Platinum and Gold sponsorships are available for this year’s event.

“Contractors tell us it’s the best event they’ve ever attended,” TPC said. “They prize the opportunity to build new ties and close connections with C-suite execs at their suppliers, and trade tips and advice with their peers.”

Qualified commercial contractors attend at no cost and other benefits include:

  • Make powerful new connections with industry peers and executive-level industry suppliers;
  • Learn about emerging technologies and potential new solutions;
  • Get maximum efficiency for vetting new products and technologies; and
  • Gain critical insights into key market intelligence and trends.
