Go for it! at The Pro Expo

by WOHe








PELLA, IOWA — As builders, remodelers, contractors,
architects and students prepare for a new year — Pella
Corporation
wants to help them
“Go for it!”  

“We want builders, remodelers, contractors, architects and
students to know they’re not alone in this unpredictable
time,” said Pella Corporation Trade Marketing Manager Jarred
Roy. “We’re inviting them to The Pro Expo
Presented by Pella events so they can be reenergized about the industry
and receive the tools they need to help them succeed.”

The Pro Expo Presented by Pella events are half-day exhibitions that
bring local professionals together to network, share ideas, earn
educational credits and learn about the latest product tips and trends
in the building industry. Events will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays at
stadium arenas in major markets across the U.S. and Canada from January
through May 2011. This year’s “Go for
it!” theme will be brought to life through basketball imagery
and motivating leadership quotes.

Pella partners with leading companies and brands — including
AZEK, Daltile, Dow, DuPont, FastenMaster, Ferguson, GE Money, Heat
& Glow, Heatilator, Henkel, James Hardie, James Hardie Artisan,
Kohler, Latricrete International, Lutron, MasterBrand Cabinets Inc.,
OSI, Schluter Systems, Silestone, Sprint, Thermador, USG, VELUX and
Wellborn — and takes them on the road to meet with
professionals in 30 markets to provide updates on new building
practices, products and services.

“The goal of The Pro Expo Presented by Pella event is to
bring a VIP experience to attendees while reducing their travel time
and costs,” Roy said. “Professionals network with
peers in their own region while learning about new trends and products
that will help their businesses succeed during these challenging
times.”
