Summary: Corporate leaders and store franchisees attended the Tint World® Annual National Convention, which was held at SEMA in Las Vegas from November 5-8, 2013.
Weston, FL – November 14, 2013 – The Tint World® corporate and franchisee team attended the SEMA show in Las Vegas, NV during November 5-8. While at the show, Tint World® participated in product knowledge and sales training, strengthened vendor relationships, and scouted the latest technologies and trends in aftermarket products and services.
SEMA is the premier aftermarket tradeshow in the world and showcases specialty automotive aftermarket products and services to tens of thousands of attendees, buyers, and vendors. The New Products Showcase features newly introduced parts, tools and components and attendees may also take advantage of educational seminars, product demonstrations, networking opportunities, and special events.
Tint World® corporate officers who were in attendance include Charles Bonfiglio, CEO, Robert Garza, COO, Paul Pirro, VP of Operations & Vendor Relations, and Anthony Foley, Director of Franchise Development. While the Tint World® headquarters is located in Florida, franchisees traveled from all over the country to attend the Tint World® National Convention.
“I feel that this year’s Tint World® Convention was the most meaningful event to our organization because Tint World® has grown so fast in recent years,” shares Charles Bonfiglio. “With nearly 40 franchise family members attending, it was our largest franchise attendance that came together in our training seminars and round table discussions where everyone shared their business successes and toured the SEMA Show. We also spent a lot of time together enjoying our many breakfast and dinner parties that Los Vegas is famous for”.
During the four-day tradeshow event, the Tint World® team took part in sales and product knowledge training held by partners such as SunTek, Memphis, Avidworx, Focal, and Compustar. Tint World® also attended general sales and leadership training by Del Ellis Sales Training International.
In addition to technical training from existing vendor partners, Tint World® representatives met with other top automotive aftermarket brands during the Tint World® Floor Tour. While Tint World® is already an authorized dealer for most major aftermarket brands, the Tint World® Floor Tour allowed the team to explore new technologies, installation techniques, and product opportunities.
Tint World® has experienced rapid growth in 2013, and SEMA was a first look at the scale of the aftermarket industry for many of the new franchisees. Overall, SEMA was a great success for Tint World® and gave franchisees a renewed sense of commitment and excitement to drive Tint World® forward. Complete 2013 SEMA photo coverage can be found here.
