Working with a variety of clients in different industries takes us to events around the country each year. Whether for hospitality, education or government, The Refinishing Touch seeks out the best opportunities for us to demonstrate the benefits of refinishing. We love any opportunity to get in front of our current and future clients!
This philosophy recently took us to San Diego for the GSA (General Services Administration) Training Conference and Expo. ‘Inspire, Innovate, Interact’ was the theme for this year’s show and with all three of those tenets being core fundamentals of our business, it made perfect sense for us to make the trip to San Diego to attend. The show started strong with the opening keynote coming from Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
Along with Lindsay from our fabulous marketing team, TRT’s president Mario Insenga was on hand during the show to take to the show floor and reconnect with our many friends in the government. The TRT team was thrilled to hear about this year’s training sessions, specifically designed to educated companies on how to sustainably work with the government.
We were fortunate for the opportunities to connect with representatives from all sectors of the government – many stopping by with sincere interest in working with us. Mario and Lindsay had the opportunity to speak about the benefits of refinishing as opposed to replacement and the green methods we practice.
The GSA’s goal is to completely eliminate its environmental footprint, and through the continuous learning programs at the show (more than 200 hours worth!) and event initiatives such as printing its promotional materials and the program guide on recycled paper using soy based ink, the GSA is definitely making strides towards achieving its goal.
With new contacts at the federal, state and local level, as well as many within military, the show was certainly a success for The Refinishing Touch and we can’t wait to attend next year’s conference in San Antonio, TX!
