BUSINESS CHANGING CONNECTIONS
This is the ONLY event that connects national sign companies to local sign and install companies across North America. National sign companies are seeking long-term install partners, installers are looking for lucrative new business relationships, and we're here to help bring everyone together!
National sign companies need to support the local installation and maintenance project needs of their major clients with projects ranging from – channel letters, wide-format graphics, electrical installations, and more – depending on the client.
Each attendee will meet 1-on-1 with representatives from 10-13 leading national sign companies for five minutes. National sign companies will recieve attendee company profiles prior to the meeting, so you can make the most of your time and get straight to business. (Pro Tip: Prep your elevator pitch before your meeting!)
Attendance is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
NOTE: Local Sign and Install Companies may only participate in one event per year to ensure opportunities for other local companies. Participants from the February 2021 and May 2022 events are not eligible to participate in the August event.

- "Get to meet people without travel, well organized, well executed." Chris (London, UK)
