Auto Glass Week in Review and Look Ahead to SEMA
During Auto Glass Week held at the Baltimore Convention Center last month, there was a plethora of meetings and educational seminars but the most anticipated event was keynote speaker Tony Aquila, CEO of Solera Holdings. Solera is the new parent company for third party administrator, LYNX Services. Aquila shared his thoughts on the Auto Glass Industry and offered insight on his vision of Solera.
In addition to Aquila’s address, Auto Glass Week held the annual International Window Film Tint Off, the Windshield Replacement Olympics, and the Windshield Repair Olympics. All three competitions were intense, competitive, and the grand prize winners took home $10,000 each. After all of the seminars, meetings, and competitions there was a tradeshow. During the Tradeshow it is always Delta Kits’ ambition to keep things simple and practical as we strive not to add or subtract from the straightforward practice of repairing a windshield. We continue to stand by our company slogan “The Proof is in the Repair” and always show people how easy windshield repair can be with hands-on real time repairs in our booth. Thanks to those of you who stopped by.
Upcoming SEMA Show
Delta Kits is exhibiting at the 2014 SEMA Show November 4 – 7, 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center (Booth #11250).
As a long-time member of SEMA, we always look forward to participating at this world-class automotive specialty products trade event. In addition to attracting potential customers, we are thrilled to get involved with the industry’s brightest minds and to see the automotive industry’s hottest products all in one location.
For those in our community who haven’t yet attended, the SEMA Show provides attendees with educational seminars, product demonstrations, special events, and plenty of networking opportunities. Last year’s event was a smashing success! The 2013 show drew more than 60,000 domestic and international buyers. Displays are segmented into 12 sections and a New Products Showcase featured nearly 2,000 newly introduced parts, tools, and components. A similar experience is expected this year.
We encourage you to stop by and visit with us if you’re going to be in Vegas that week. Whether your interests lie in headlight restoration, windshield repair, or windshield replacement, we hope to see you there.
