ISA’s THE LINK…INSTALL continues to deliver important connections between local and national sign companies in unique one-on-one virtual networking appointments. The next round will be held November 3-4, offering the final opportunity for 2021.
Past participants praised the experience as well as the connections they made. Soon after the event one said already been contacted about future projects. Another called it a “great way to network. It was nice to interact with people and actually speak with them.”
Even in a virtual setting, the event provided an opportunity to “speak about our qualifications and offer our services with more detail.”
The virtual event grew out of the popular in-person event held at ISA International Sign Expo in the past. Without an in-person event for two years, this important aspect of the sign, graphics and visual communications industry was threatened. This new virtual event has helped fill the gap—and will continue even when ISA International Sign Expo returns to an in-person event in 2022. (And yes, a version of the local-national networking event will occur in-person at ISA Sign Expo in Atlanta May 4-6.)
It’s a win for national sign companies, too. “It’s a great way to expand your vendor network without all the work of finding them yourself,” said one. Another noted it was a “great opportunity to see many people and vendors for the money.”
Space is limited for the November event and the deadline is fast approaching. Interested companies should contact ISA today by emailing TheLink-Install@signs.org or calling (703) 778-6303. Local sign and install companies may only participate in one event per year to ensure opportunities for other local companies.
