Build Your Own Business Plans at EXPO

The annual PCA EXPO is the leading event for painting business owners and their teams looking to expand their skills, get up-to-date educational content, network with peers and connect with the brightest minds in the industry.

New this year at the EXPO, we’re offering interactive workshop sessions to support your business growth. Not only will you hear new strategies and success stories from presenters, but you’ll also have the opportunity to develop a custom plan specific to your business.

Each workshop consists of an in-depth presentation to introduce the topic, then shifts to a collaborative group session to work through the details of a plan for your own business. Once complete, you’ll have a solid business plan in hand to take home and implement right away.

Workshop Topics

Systems to Implement the Trade Best Practice Series in Your Company (Two Parts)

The Trade Best Practice Series is a series of videos produced by the Painting Contractors Association designed to help business owners on-board new employees. The video series helps new and existing employees learn more about the painting industry, learn what it means to be a part of a painting company team, and learn the basics of how to prep, clean, sand, prime, paint, and more! New instructional materials, learning pathways, and additional training aids will be available in February 2020, and the EXPO Workshop will help you create a Master Plan to start training first-time employees individually or in a classroom and will help you create refresher training for existing employees.
