Orlando is the site of the 2016 Annual Meeting of the EIFS Industry Members Association on May 4-6. This year’s new format will be held in Florida and adds an extra day to the meeting to accommodate all the activities that are lined up.
The location of the meeting is the Omni Orlando Resort at Championsgate, and the overall theme for this meeting is “Engage,” which is a signal to the attendees, encouraging them to dive in and get involved. Scheduled over a three day period, the meeting will be a non-stop cavalcade of events in which participants can engage. The program is structured to encourage interaction between all who attend and includes events that span the spectrum from those that are educational and entertaining to those that are recreational. They are all married to networking opportunities that are the hallmark of EIMA annual meetings. The annual Duncan Crowther Golf Tournament will be a major part of the meeting, as well as a recreational event for non-golfers, which will run concurrently with the golf tournament.
Key agenda topics include the importance of branding, how to obtain EIFS insurance, using social media more effectively, and of course, the latest in the technical and advocacy arenas as well as new membership services that are being launched. Attendees will walk away knowing more than ever before about the ever-growing EIFS industry and the initiatives of EIMA in 2016 and beyond.
This meeting is the first time in at least eight years that the EIMA annual meeting is not being held in conjunction with the AWCI Convention and the INTEX Expo, which is in New Orleans on April 16-19.
