In the first of what Capitol Sales Company describes as the "ultimate training ground" for custom installation professionals, the San Mateo event, which attracted attendees from the entire Bay Area, presented a soup -to -nuts program on the latest and most relevant products and technology trends, as well as classes devoted to helping professionals market and merchandise their services through a variety of cost -effective means.
"It was a thrill to see the way attendees took advantage of the opportunity to engage some of the most high profile vendors in the business," said Jeff Kussard, Capitol Sales Company's Strategic Development Director. "It's one of the key advantages of taking the time to attend one of our Learning Institute programs, along with a near endless well of usable information."
Many of the attendees noted how the idea of a three -day educational program at first seemed almost intimidating.
"I came in not sure if I could do this. I left knowing I can," commented Megan Sohm, Arnold Electrical, Arnold, CA. (www.arnoldelectrical.biz)
