San Antonio’s Made for Conventions

Jun 1st, 2016

Forget Las Vegas. After a recent trip to San Antonio, home to the 2016 International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™ (WFCT), I’m convinced this city is one of the best locations to hold a convention in the U.S. Furthermore, the city’s size, amenities and hotspots seem to be made exclusively for the members of our […]

Millennial Probs

May 4th, 2016

We ran a guest blog recently by one of my colleagues, Nick St. Denis. Titled “OH NO! THE CREATURES ARE COMING!” the blog explains why he thinks working with Millennials (the generation born between the early 1980s and late 90s) should not be as big of a deal as it’s been made out to be. […]

Bring Your Kids to WFCT

Feb 17th, 2016

For many of you, living in a small town is a strategic part of your business plan. You’ve cornered the market, are the only tint shop in town and you’re doing quite well. Such exclusivity to your customers has allowed you to live the life you want, including raising a family. And while monopolizing a […]

There’s No Place Like CES

Jan 13th, 2016

It’s a trade show unlike any in the world. Every year, nearly 200,000 people descend on Las Vegas to attend CES (formerly known as the Consumer Electronics Show). It fills multiple convention centers and, if you’re lucky, your hotel, food and Uber ride will only cost 4.1 times what it usually does. What Is CES? […]

2016 Window Film Projections

Dec 22nd, 2015

It’s the end of the year, and while many people use this as a time for reflection, I want to do the opposite. Rather than reflect, I’m going to project. Here’s some of what I know will be happening in window film this year, followed by some predictions. Window Film Magazine This magazine is hard-launching […]

SEMA “Of Note” Notes: Day 3

Nov 6th, 2015

Day three of SEMA brought a lot more than three bullet points to be shared, but at this point, it’s become tradition. Here are day three’s standout: 1) Distributors are Key Many manufacturers new and old to window film are at SEMA because of distributors. Whether it’s that they’re exhibiting alongside their distributor, as is […]

SEMA “Of Note” Notes: Day 2

Nov 5th, 2015

Today, it rained in the desert. There was also some decent-sized hail falling from the sky. But even that couldn’t keep business from happening. Here are a few things I picked up on during the SEMA Show’s second day. 1) People are Doing Actual Business So yesterday I told you about how the show floor […]

SEMA “Of Note” Notes: Day 1

Nov 4th, 2015

A total of about 150,000 people have descended upon Sin City this week (at least that’s what my cab driver told me)—all in the name of the automotive aftermarket. Today was honestly one of the rougher days of my Window Film magazine tenure. Despite trying to stay up until a decent time to adjust better […]

Genesis Window Tinting is on a Roll

Oct 21st, 2015

Every once in a while, it’s good to give credit where credit is due. This is certainly one of those cases. Elk Grove, Calif.-based Genesis Window Tinting has been on fire lately and the “why” behind that deserves a look. TintTV First, let’s start with TintTV. The goal of these episodes is to provide viewers […]

Camaraderie > Competition

Oct 7th, 2015

It’s true that competition makes you better. But so does genuine camaraderie. This year’s International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™ (WFCT) in Reno felt a bit different from the previous year. The 2014 event, held in Baltimore, had such a competitive vibe about it that when I wrote my event recap, the headline ended up […]
