With this spring’s ISA Sign Expo now in our rear-view mirror, we are eagerly anticipating our next big event this year – the FASTSIGNS® 2017 Outside Sales Summit!
This big annual event, which will be the seventh put on by FASTSIGNS®, is happening on August 18th in St. Louis, Missouri at St. Louis Union Station. We will have booth number 205, and look forward to seeing all the other outstanding displays and getting another great look at everything happening in our industry.
Last year’s FASTSIGNS® convention was the largest yet, and in addition to the trade show featured 133 outside sales professionals from the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Australia, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates being recognized for their achievements in sales. It was a neat opportunity to see some of the best salespeople in the industry recognized for their hard work.
At the trade show itself, there were more than 300 attendees, with 18,000 square feet of booth space, making it the largest vendor show yet. Attendees had the chance to participate in a number of different classes and roundtables, and also heard from some keynote speakers.
As we mentioned before, this will be the seventh year FASTSIGNS® has put on the event. The company is North America’s largest sign and visual communications franchisor, with more than 615 independently owned and operated FASTSIGNS® centers all over the world. The company is among the standard bearers for the industry, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to attend their event this year.
There will be two other expos to attend later this year: the NSSA Northeast Sign Expo and the USSC Sign World International. It’s shaping up to be a great second half of 2017 for us at Erie Custom Signs in terms of the upcoming conferences and trade shows we have. We look forward to learning and sharing more with you!
