SPRAYFOAM Professional - Summer 2018 - 24

Recap

The Sprayfoam Show 2018
have been worked upon for the past
year, and priorities for 2018. This review
is the most direct means of demonstrating how SPFA puts its members' funding and attention into initiatives that
directly help the industry grow.
Mason Knowles also delivered a
touching tribute to past SPFA Executive
Director, Daniel Benedict, who passed
away in late 2017. That video is available on the SPFA YouTube page.

In the tradition of honoring exceptional contribution to the industry,
SPFA recognized Mr. Ridge Stockdale
of Accella Polyurethanes (a Carlisle
company) with an SPFA Lifetime
Achievement Award. This award is not
an every-year event, but reserved for
someone that's had a long-term relationship with the industry, has contributed a
great deal to our organization's growth,
and been a widely recognized force for
good. Upon his announced retirement
(again), Mr. Stockdale has earned the
thanks of all that have benefitted from
his efforts, and all those that he has set
up for future success.

SPFA also recognized Mr. Ron Winkle
of Roof Asset Management with the
Strickler Award. Several Years ago
this award was bestowed to Bonnie
Strickler, Chairwoman of the SPFA PCP
program and in her namesake, for her
tireless efforts to build today's PCP
program along with most of its prior

iterations, and her overall contribution to
the educational landscape of our industry. This award has been continued and
recognizes outstanding contributions to
PCP program development, delivery or
effectiveness.
The SPFA Annual
Contractor Excellence
Awards Luncheon,
held Day 1 of the
show, received nearrecord submissions
demonstrating some
of the best SPF has to
offer. Benefitting from growing interest
and a new coatings category, the award
luncheon is as valuable to winners as it
is entertaining to the audience.

The Exhibit Hall
Spanning two days of direct interaction opportunities with customers and
vendors dedicated to all-things SPF, the
exhibit hall had high energy and consistent traffic. While most of The Sprayfoam
ShowTM agenda focuses upon education,
awareness, and outreach, the exhibit
hall carries a different energy. This is
where things get loud, where people are
playing with the shiny new things that
could improve their business, or making
purchasing decisions on a new formulation or a new rig. It's where the opening
reception happens with food and drinks
and where people get to catch up with
other people they haven't seen all year.
It's the energy of commercialism, one
of the few places within the show it's
accepted. You'll notice as an attendee
that session presentations by industry
people can't be commercials for their
own product. That corporate sponsors
present awards to people that used a
competing product. It's about education
and spurring discussions that make stuff
happen. It's about getting industry credentials or volunteering. Commercialism
is admittedly generally suppressed in
much of the show, and it is one of my
greatest pleasures to see dozens of volunteers all from competing companies
working together behind the scenes as
one team to make the show happen.
But it's my second greatest pleasure to
watch them then bang-away on each
other, competing for customers in the
exhibit hall.
