The call went out to all Duradek Distributors, Dealers and Installers that Duradek is hosting a Convention in Kelowna, BC this week. This event celebrates Duradek’s 40th Anniversary and promises to be an action packed few days of meetings and recreation for all.
Taking place at the Delta Grand Okanagan Resort, this occasion brings the vinyl decking industry’s experts back to where it all began…the beautiful Okanagan region of British Columbia. For those of you who don’t know, vinyl deck membranes were first conceived by two Okanagan fishermen when they realized that the marine vinyl on their pleasure boat would be a perfect solution for protecting decks and balconies so popular in the region. The rest of the story is history! (see The Duradek Story for details).
During the meetings, Duradek will present information on the decking industry and some interesting specifics including technical installation details and how to get the most leverage from marketing efforts…and maybe even give a sneak peak for what is up and coming for Duradek’s new products before the official announcement at the decking industry’s next big events – Deck Expo in Baltimore and the International Builders Show in Las Vegas.
But Duradekers are more than just hard working deck builders…they are a pretty social bunch too so chances are that while in a region that is known for it’s wineries and golf courses, there will be plenty of recreation activities to enjoy as well.
We are looking forward to seeing you all there, and for the Duradek installers that can’t make it – we will be sure to pass along the best of the meeting information (and maybe some of the fun stories) after the convention is done!
