4 Reasons You Should Attend Restoration Management Conferences
The Restoration Management industry is a small, yet incredible community with a wealth of knowledge and experience in so many areas. Contractor services range from fire restoration, mold remediation, water mitigation, contents, carpet cleaning, duct cleaning, and so much more. With so many focal points in a single industry, it is essential that contractors play an active roll in the community and share their experience. One of the best ways to participate is through the abundant industry conference and tradeshows events available.
Conferences are held within the Restoration Management industry nearly every month of the year and there are several opportunities to explore – Contractor Connection Conference in June, the Experience Conference & Expo in September, and many more. The following are the top 4 reasons you should attend a tradeshow this season:
It’s critical that your staff keep their certifications updated, and nearly every conference event offers CE credits that you may easily take advantage of. The courses are detailed and enjoyable, and typically well attended by other attendees. Find out how your team can earn the credits through the tradeshow website.
Staying up to date with new product releases, technology, and other business ideas is best accomplished at a conference expo! Rather than combing the internet to find answers, conference expos pull together the cream of the crop within the industry all in one large hall. ClientRunner Software, for example, is very involved at nearly every industry tradeshow offering live software demos, answering questions about the pros and cons of restoration management software, and more. Take the opportunity to walk the expo hall to see what there is to offer, and keep your mind open to other workflows or methods that you may not currently be taking advantage of – you may just find the answers you are looking for to take you company to the next level. And if all this is not enough, many conferences offer free expo hall passes for other visitors to enjoy – bring your family or team to share the experience!
Attending an industry conference is a great way to rub elbows with other like-minded individuals within the industry. Both young and old, amateurs and experts are certain to find other contractors that may be experiencing the same challenges you are, or that may have more experience and knowledge to share on how to improve your business. Most attendees are very willing to share all their trade “secrets” and make new connections. Don’t forget to take business cards and be prepared to make new friends as you learn along side the best in the industry.
TO GET AWAY…
Typically, conferences are held at popular vacation or business destinations that are close to great local attractions, incredible food, or other intriguing locals. While usually difficult to leave office, getting away is a very healthy way to put life back into perspective and focus on your personal and business needs. Not only that, but it’s a great opportunity to take your family or friends along and spend some well deserved time away at a fantastic vacation destination. Take some time for yourself – you won’t regret that you did.
Whether you are looking at attending an industry conference for the first time or as a seasoned conference veteran, consider the ways that attendance will benefit you and your company this year. If spending time at tradeshows is nothing new to you, make goals to improve the experience further for your benefit. Lastly, don’t forget to visit the ClientRunner Software team at the show you are attending and make some new friends!
