E very day it seems that the wrap and graphics world is pushing new boundaries. From the creativity of our industry's design- ers, to the talent and dedication of our installers, innovative and exciting new trends are being produced like never before. Eye-catching, new wrapping films capture the attention of new and returning customers who allow us to have the oppor- tunity to do what we love and succeed at it. Looking back on the events of 2016, a few highlights such as WRAPSCON, SEMA, and some exclusive industry-parties show that this industry we all love is ascending to new heights. The National Business Media group (NBM), known for Sign & Digital Graphics and WRAPS magazines, stepped forward to host the 2nd annual WRAPSCON event, as a part of the NBM Show in Indianapolis—a wraps event, by wrappers, for wrap- pers. WRAPSCON has become an opportunity for our industry to come together to meet, learn, exhibit and network without the chaotic schedules of some of the other trade shows. Live demos, new products, training sessions, and social events such as "Meet the Masters" allow old and new members to discuss new ideas, teach tips and tricks to one another, and overall, make new connections in the industry. No trade show would be complete without the social events, such as group dinners and afterparties. KPMF, one of the lead- ing film manufacturers, hosted a once-in-a-lifetime IndyCar racing experience for a few lucky attendees. A special, two- seater IndyCar raced participants up to 180 mph around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The racing event ended just before their product release party, at the Dallara Indy Car Quite the Show Wrap events reflect growth of the industry B Y K E V I N P U T N A M A N D T H E C R E W A T W R A P F O L I O 16 • WRAPS • 2 0 1 7 BUSINESS & SALES
