Business Boot Camp for Wrap Professionals

Two day course: $1200

It’s one thing to know how to wrap, it’s another to know how to run a wrap business. We're excited to introduce, the first ever, comprehensive workshop on how to run a business in the wrap industry. The workshop has been created in collaboration with, and hosted by, Justin Pate, from The Wrap Institute, and John Duever, co-owner of Vinyl Images and Design - both pioneers in the wrap world. Dallas Fowler will present on design and production and you will hear from James Heller from Wrapify. Destiny Rotuno from Avery Dennison and Sean O’Brien from Topic Design will teach you how to maximize your online presence with a focus on social media.

The wrap industry can be extremely exciting and rewarding. Equally, it can be very frustrating as it has unique business challenges that most industries do not face. This can lead to long hours, tension in the workplace, frustrated clients and financial goals not being met. The Business Boot Camp for Wrap Professionals has been specifically designed to address these issues head on by offering comprehensive solutions combined with detailed analysis of every aspect in a wrap shop from ownership, sales, design, production, installers and marketing. The Business Boot Camp is entirely geared to create clear communication channels, facilitate growth both short and long term by streamlining workflow and increase profits.

Business Boot Camp will be hosted at Car Wrap City in Dallas, TX. It will include a special evening event that will allow participants and presenters to network and further the education process in a relaxed setting. This event will feature special guest speaker, James "Ruggs" Kochevar, Publisher for NBM. 

Topics to be covered during the two-day workshop:

  • Marketing - Destiny Rotuno, Marketing Associate at Avery Dennison
