We strongly believe that our products have the power to transform businesses, and tradeshows are the perfect medium for us to share this belief with the people on the front lines.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 25, 2014
Academy Inc., a renowned expert in the design and manufacturing of high quality commercial awnings, canopies and cabanas, is kicking off the 2014 tradeshow season by announcing its presence at several upcoming industry shows.
Academy Inc. made its initial 2014 appearance at the Restaurant Facility Management Association (RFMA) Annual Conference in Dallas, Texas. Slated for February 16-18, this down south event was one of the largest gatherings of restaurant facility professionals and vendors in the country. Business and franchise owners flocked to this show to learn about the newest products and services needed to succeed.
Academy Inc. will attend another major conference -- the Professional Retail Store Maintenance Association Conference (PRSM) in Orlando, Florida -- from April 6-8. A plethora of retail facility professionals depend on PRSM to help them achieve success and a competitive advantage through quality programs and resources.
Academy Inc., which holds over a century of industry experience, will have a large presence at the trade show in order to enlighten retailers on the many benefits of investing in an awning or canopy for their property. This includes all-important brand recognition via customized designs and logos; protection from the elements for customers; and of course energy savings by reducing the amount of heat entering the building and thus the amount of air conditioning needed. The latter two points will especially interest property owners near the Texas and Florida areas – talk about a strong sun!
“At Academy Inc. we love having the opportunity to go to trade shows throughout the country,” said James Richman, CEO of Academy Inc. “We strongly believe that our products have the power to transform businesses, and tradeshows are the perfect medium for us to share this belief with the people on the front lines. Whether someone owns a restaurant franchise, a small café or a medium sized storefront, we are eager to help them take their business to the next level with the perfect awning or canopy.”
