Dates Set for 2023 Industrial Contractor Connect

MONDAY, APRIL 17, 2023

The sixth annual Industrial Contractor Connect will be held Nov. 7-10 at the Lake Las Vegas Westin Resort & Spa in Henderson, Nevada.

Produced and hosted by Technology Publishing Company, industrial painting contractors and industry suppliers convene for three plus days of networking, education, activities and one-on-one meetings. Contractor Connect is well-known and valued for providing important industry connections, establishing new relationships and facilitating commerce.

The current list of participating suppliers this year include:

Additional companies are expected to confirm their commitment to participate in the coming weeks.

As part of the event this year, Sherwin-Williams will be offering a genuine bucket list experience: a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon. The group will land on the canyon floor and enjoy a short reception along with many photo opportunities. The flight will capture both the beautiful sunset over the Grand Canyon and witness the amazing light show of the Las Vegas Strip on the return.

“The event continues to grow in stature and importance to the industry,” said Brion Palmer, TPC CEO. “It is the only industry event that truly connects executives from industrial painting contractors with key industry suppliers in an intimate setting that allows for proprietary and mutually beneficial conversations.”

Successful 2022 Event

The fifth annual Contractor Connect took place at the Hammock Beach Golf Resort & Spa in Palm Coast, Florida, from Oct. 25-28. Qualified buyers (contractors) and sellers (suppliers) came together for a variety of networking activities, educational sessions and prescheduled one-on-one meetings.

As the sun set on Contractor Connect, attendees continued to share their success with the TPC team and praise for the event as a whole.

“Every time we come here I meet more and more people in the industry that I didn’t know before and I learn from all of them,” said Andy Odorzynski, National Sales Manager, Induron Protective Coatings. “We learn a lot from the other suppliers that are here. We manufacturer paint, but everyone here manufacturing equipment, abrasives, things like that, they all touch what we do, so that’s important to us.”

“This event met all my expectations,” said Vinny Lagares, Manager, Dynamic Sandblasting and Painting. “Food was great, events were great, I definitely will leave here with a lot of friends and good business contacts.”

“The best part of this event was meeting the vendors, and it goes beyond just meeting them,” said Lew O’Neill, Industrial Sales Representative, Vanwin Coatings. “It’s getting to know them personally and them knowing exactly what us contractors need from them.”

“It was a great honor to participate in the 2022 Industrial Contractor Connect, especially to sit on the esteemed ‘Coatings Panel’ with guys that I truly respect,” Davies Hood, President, Induron Protective Coatings, wrote in a comment on LinkedIn.

“As one of the few who have participated in every single Contractor Connect, I highly recommend this truly valuable networking event. The ‘culture’ that this event has developed is really cool and something that I look forward to annually!”

“Thank you for putting on another excellent event. We were a very proud sponsor and look forward to next year!” wrote CRW Consulting & Distribution.

“Another great year of connections at Industrial Contractor Connect in Hammock Beach, Florida, networking with industry professionals,” wrote Steven Brook, Director of Sales & Business Development at Abrasives Inc.
