The Orlando Who’s Who Showcase presented by Blue Book Network was last week. P & A Roofing and Sheet Metal attended to view the exhibitor’s booths. This event was the most beneficial to business building since I started working in construction in February. We had six representatives of our company at the showcase. General contractors set up booths to exhibit and advertise their services. We were able to connect with many businesses like Gator Construction, Graystone Contractors, Great Southern Contractors, and many more. In the last three business days following this event, P & A Roofing and Sheet Metal has added our services to over ten NEW bid lists.
We hope to continue to create and foster relationships through similar networking events. We realize that we are not just gaining exposure to the people in a particular venue, we are building connections within their network too. If someone they know has a need that matches our business, and we have made an impression, we will likely get a referral. We also know that it’s not just a one-way street. If someone in our network matches a business we encounter at an event, we won’t hesitate to share their details. Referrals will only strengthen relationships.
Tomorrow P & A Roofing and Sheet Metal, Inc. will be exhibiting at the FAPPO 50th Annual Conference Trade Show. We are looking forward to connecting with public procurement officials here in Florida and creating new relationships to lead to mutual referrals in our industry.
