The International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™
(IWFC) 2013 is quickly approaching and Madico Window Films is once again a
supporter and exhibitor. The event will be held September 18-20 in Tampa, FL,
at the Tampa Convention Center and Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina.
During the conference, attendees will take part in
educational seminars by industry leaders and expert speakers, network on the
Exhibition/Extravaganza show floor with window film manufacturers and suppliers
and view the Tint-Off™ competitions.
This year, Madico Window Films will also be taking advantage
of the show’s close proximity to our manufacturing facility and offering tours
of the Madico factory to interested dealers. You can register for the tour, here.
During a recent interview with Window Film
magazine, Madico’s marketing and customer relations manager Angie Leonetti,
described what attendees can expect to see from Madico at the show, “We will be
showcasing our full line of Madico and Sun-Gard automotive and flat glass
films. We are also looking forward to meeting with prospective dealers who are
interested in our new Sunscape Designer Film program. In addition, we’ll be
hosting a presentation on installation techniques and specific tools geared
toward safety/security film products and improving flat glass installation
This year’s Tint-Off competition is the largest one yet with
60 automotive and 25 architectural competitors. Madico has sponsored two tinters
in the competition, Hahn Kim from Song’s Tint Masters in Los Angeles, CA and
Damon McKenzie from Performance Tinters in Babson Park, FL. We also have a
number of other loyal customers participating in the competition. The
Tint-Off’s bring together tinters from around the world to showcase their
skills and compete for the $10,000 prize. Industry veterans judge the
competitors’ tint installations as well as their procedures, safety,
cleanliness and customer interaction. It is also a chance to learn from other
professionals, execute quality installations, pick up innovative techniques and
of course compete for the chance to hold the title of “World’s Best Architectural
or Automotive Window Film Tinter.”
Our very own Andy Hayes, technical services engineer, has
been chosen as a presenter for the show’s seminar series. Andy will be
presenting “Installation Techniques for Architectural Glass and Safety/Security
Films.” This session will review installation techniques related to safety and
security film products and how you can gain a better understanding of specific
tools for the flat glass market. There will also be a review of installation
techniques that are specific for flat glass, to help you improve productivity.
We look forward to meeting with our valued dealers at this
year’s show. Please plan to visit the Madico Window Films booth, # 313!
