As SEMA and the WWrap party just concluded not long ago, the producer of WRAPS and Sign & Digital Graphics magazines has announced the dates for another upcoming big event – Wrapscon, which has already become a must-attend event for anyone who is involved in the graphics market.
This is especially for those who are determined to learn more after we keep telling the importance of proper training, Wrapscon is for you. In fact, The Wrap Institute (TWI) has just created an event page on Facebook, telling people to join its TWI Live event at Wrapscon, which there will be certain training provided during the time.
So the third annual Wrapscon event for 2017 will be launched in Long Beach from July 20th to 22nd. Registration will open on April 10th. If we say SEMA is an event that contains this and that from the general auto industry, Wrapscon is particularly for wrap installers – Just as it says on the website, “A wraps event, for wrappers, by wrappers”.
Wrapscon brings the best professionals and leading manufacturers in the graphics market together into one venue, where you will get to know the trend by seeing dozens of latest surprisingly fascinating products, including those vehicle templates, wrap specific artwork, vinyl technology, tools and so on.
More than that, you will be able to learn different install techniques by hearing professionals share their tips and tricks. You can also bring your most difficult issue to them and ask for feedback. There will be different training sessions during the event, so we assure you that Wrapscon will no way disappoint you.
We have not yet got the complete list of which installers and manufacturers are going to attend yet, but you might want to know who did join Wrapscon last year so that you can roughly guess who you will see.
For manufacturers and organizations, big names like 3M, Mutoh America, Orafol, Roland, Wrapify and The Wrap Institute were all parts of Wrapscon 2016. And in fact they all provided useful trainings for the attendees. TeckWrap plans to attend Wrapscon in 2017 too and we hope to see you there.
The topics ranged from usage of knifeless tape, how to choose the right tools for your application, to installing different kinds of wraps and even sales tips for your business.
As for master installers, there were Justin Pate from The Wrap Institute for sure, and others like Dallas Fowler, Matt Richart, Adam Summer, Jim Miller, Nate Place, Tood Straub, Ritchie Daize, Zachariah Lujano.
I do not think I have to keep going through the whole list now. Just make up your mind and mark the dates on your calendar. What else can be better than staying under the same roof with the greatest minds of the industry?
