The Refinishing Touch team recently attended the Western Association of College and University Housing Officers (WACUHO) show in beautiful San Diego. The show, held at the University of San Diego campus, was an intimate event, but that didn’t lessen the amount of information we gained there.
Throughout the show there were various interest sessions. These informative discussions brought vendors and university officials together to share their thoughts on the steps needed to improve university housing. Given our close relationship with universities across the country, it was no surprise that our founder Mario Insenga was a participant in one of the interest sessions.
Along with two other exhibitors and ten university officials that were in attendance, Mario helped lead a discussion on university budget cuts, and getting best value for work that needs to be done within campus dorms. For an hour, Mario and other participants shared knowledge and learned from one another about the steps needed to move university housing forward.
With over 50 exhibitors and an ideal location, WACUHO is quickly becoming a must attend event. It’s expanding the discussion of dorms and other university housing – not only on the west coast, but for college campuses across the country. We were honored to share our insights and gain some additional knowledge from those in attendance. Now we’re looking forward to next year’s show, which is sure to have an even bigger impact.
