A wraps event, for wrappers, by wrappers!
National Business Media, producers of WRAPS and GRAPHICS PRO magazines and GRAPHICS PRO EXPO (GPX), presents THE EVENT for graphics installers: WRAPSCON, June 2-4, 2022 at GPX Indianapolis.
With the huge potential for growth in the graphics market, especially vinyl wrap professionals serving the vehicle wrap advertising, commercial fleet graphics and other related graphics markets, WRAPSCON has become the must-attend event of the year.
The top graphics installers and leading manufacturers and distributors in the business will come together under one roof, with a national audience of installers, to share tips and tricks, install techniques, and the latest products to boost this rapidly growing market.
WRAPSCON is back with more in 2022! Come see the latest in digital printing, vinyl technology, lamination, vehicle templates, wrap specific artwork and tools, plus an expert educational panel (WRAPSconnect), a thrilling competition (Wrap Olympics), Meet the Masters, and more. If you have skin in the WRAPS game, then you gotta be there!
This moderated morning session, on Thursday, June 2 at 8 a.m., is an in-depth panel discussion covering everything you need to know about running a wraps business. There will be a 45-minute moderated session followed by 30 minutes of Q&A.
Panelists include: Jim and Starla Miller, Miller Decals; Daren and Mary Merkle, Shadow Graphix, Indianapolis; Adam Sumner, WRAPIX Academy; John Duever, Vinyl Images and Design; Brad Rapone, TradeWraps; Matt Richart, Digital EFX Wraps; Matt Wolynski, Phenomenal Vinyl; Jeb Breitzke, B5 Installations; and Charlie Trujillo, Lettering Express.
This one-of-a-kind wraps contest will test the wrap skills and mental toughness of 32 two-person teams as they battle through a Decathlon of ten grueling stages of competition. Do you have what it takes?
Judges include Starla Miller, Miller Decals; Jen and Steve Carney, Carbon Wraps; Adam Sumner, Wrapix Imaging; Luis Tirado, WBC Graphics; and Keith Vu, Savage Wraps. This year’s emcee is Kevin Kempf, PG Nola.
Have you walked WRAPSCON in previous years and thought, “Too bad it’s only focused on installers?!” Well, you may have had a point, but not anymore…
For WRAPSCON 2022, we are introducing the WRAPSCON Designer Throwdown! This contest is 100% focused on you, the designer, to highlight your skills and show the market what you do best!
