(West Palm Beach, FL) It was an ISA International Sign Expo and Signarama convention for the history books. ISA and Signarama teamed up for the second year in a row to bring in record numbers of attendees to a stellar event held in Las Vegas. Over 400 Signarama attendees walked through the Expo doors among many other visitors to the industry’s largest trade show.

Signarama’s franchisees were together for their 2nd annual convention entitled “Momentum Makers”. The bold agenda and name were meant to keep up the spirit and momentum of record sales the company has been experiencing in recent years and throughout 2017 thus far.  Pairing with ISA allows Signarama franchisees the opportunity to network, create new connections and feel the pulse of the entire sign community through vendors exhibiting the latest in technology, and systems, and informed keynote speakers.

Roundtable sessions were highly attended on topics such as; generating more leads, how to build successful road maps, selling profitable products, direct and online marketing and assessing P&L’s for hidden profitability. Vendors presented new technologies to franchisees in a dedicated VIP room and discussed consumer demands today in the industry. There was also a private after hours’ tour on the ISA show floor that numerous Signarama preferred vendors participated in.

HP, worldwide provider in over 60 countries, was named Signarama’s Vendor of the Year, for delivering exceptional products and services to the network of Signarama franchisees. “We are privileged to work with such an outstanding vendor such as HP. Their commitment to top level support and innovative products will not only strengthen our partnership but will allow our franchisees to offer high-quality products at competitive prices,” said “JT” Jim Tatem, President of Signarama.

“On behalf of my colleagues and HP partners, we are thrilled to have been presented the Signarama Vendor of the Year Award.  This award symbolizes the true partnership HP and Signarama have built over the last 10 years and we continue to work together to provide more solutions for Signarama franchisees,” commented Tom Giglio, Strategic Accounts Manager of HP.

Signarama recognized over 100 franchisees who excel in customer service, marketing, quality service and sales. 58 franchisees were among the Million Dollar Circle to be honored. The MVP award went to the top franchise exceeding $5 million in annual sales. Joining the 66 Signarama Hall of Fame members, two new members were recognized for their outstanding achievement in business and exemplary overall performance.

The most memorable highlight of the Signarama convention was when 400 red shirts came down the escalator and “stormed the ISA show floor”. “It united us as a franchise family and showed our strength in numbers.” said JT.
