What’s the difference between leading a remodeling project and running an airport? In one sense, not much. Airports recruit the airlines, manage the gates, and keep an eye on the weather. You recruit subcontractors, manage the arrival of materials and people on the jobsite, and keep an eye on the weather. Both you and the airport work with myriad groups in order to deliver the kind of service that brings back customers.

Like you, Remodeling regularly aligns itself with the best people in the business in order to please you—our colleague and customer. And thus it’s with pleasure that we can report we have teamed with Remodelers Advantage and two other operations to produce the Remodelers Summit and Awards Gala this coming Oct. 25-27 in Kansas City, Mo. Stay tuned for registration and program information.

The Summit will serve as the capstone for Remodeling Excellence Week, where we’ll be 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’s induction of the Big50 Class of 2016, GuildQuality’s Service Excellence Awards, and the new Remodelers Advantage Impact Award.

In addition, the Summit will be immediately preceded and followed by Remodelers Advantage Roundtables Peer Group meetings. Roundtables members include nearly 200 remodeling companies from across the U.S. and Canada, representing more than $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. They are the cream of the remodeling crop, as is evidenced by the large number of Big50 members in the group.

We’ve worked with Remodelers Advantage for more than 30 years; today, every issue of Remodeling includes the firm’s “To Your Advantage” column. 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. It’s the ultimate in teamwork.
