Hanley Wood, Remodeling magazine’s parent company, announced today that REMODELING magazine will partner with Remodelers Advantage Inc., an international consulting firm dedicated to the remodeling industry, to produce the Remodelers Summit and Awards Gala this coming Oct. 25 – 27 in Kansas City, Mo.
The Summit will serve as the capstone for Remodeling Excellence Week featuring inspirational guest speakers, provocative peer-to-peer discussions, and a dinner at which several groups will assemble to present the biggest awards in the remodeling industry. Those honors include the Fred Case Remodeling Entrepreneur of the Year Award (the largest cash prize in the remodeling industry), REMODELING magazine’s induction of the Big50 Class of 2016, GuildQuality’s Service Excellence Awards, and the new Remodelers Advantage Impact Award.
“No publication does more than REMODELING—in print, online, and through videos and newsletters—to provide home improvement pros with business tools so they can run successful companies,” said Rick Strachan, President of Hanley Wood’s Remodeling and Contractor Group. “And Remodelers Advantage is the only company that delivers relevant business education, training and valuable resources through a program as robust and unique as the Roundtables Peer Groups. That’s why we’re pleased to join forces to create an event that will deliver to our mutual audiences a comprehensive set of tools to help them thrive.”
In addition, the Summit will be immediately preceded and followed by Remodelers Advantage Roundtables Peer Group meetings. Roundtables members include nearly 200 large volume remodeling companies from across the U.S. and Canada, representing over $1.4 billion in annual remodeling revenue. The members of this organization work together to share business best practices, provide input and advice, and spur each other to even greater successes, and are recognized as leaders in the industry. Over 400 industry professionals will be in attendance including 300 business owner and key manager members that will take part in the Remodelers Advantage Roundtables.
“Remodelers Advantage has worked for over 30 years with REMODELING as contributors to the magazine, events, and innumerable other initiatives,” added Victoria Downing, President of Remodelers Advantage. “We are especially pleased to join the REMODELING team for this event as a majority of our members have been recognized as Big50 remodelers in the past. Our members, like those who are awarded the Big50 award, work hard to continually improve business results. By working together to produce the Remodelers Summit, we’ll create an event that will deliver cutting edge content and information to an ever-growing audience of industry leaders.”
The Remodelers Summit will take place at the Sheraton Crown Plaza Hotel in Kansas City, Mo.
