SRP chose to sponsor Auto Glass Week 2013 for many beneficial
reasons, one being the competitions. "We've always felt it
is important to support the industry in whatever way we can. Quite
frankly, we enjoy being in the middle of the action and there is
no better action in the industry as the repair and replacement Olympics.
There is just something about being around people whom are proud
of their craft and willing to show it off that is exciting,"
"Every industry needs a singular place to meet, interact,
exchange ideas and bond as a whole. For years we were a little bi-polar
with two main shows and a bunch of smaller conferences. Now, with
one show encompassing all things auto glass, everyone can concentrate
and bring their energy to one place," Osland added.
Auto Glass Week draws more than 1,000 attendees and features top
industry players on the show floor each year. The event will be
held in Tampa, Fla., at the Tampa Convention Center and the Tampa
Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina, September 18-20.
Osland offers his support for technicians at this year's competitions,
"What you will be doing on the show floor during competition
is what you do every day, just with less people watching. Relax,
take a deep breath and enjoy the event knowing you are in the top
of your field."
