Deckorators provided all airfare, lodging, transportation and meals.
At the Pro Summit, Certified Pros participated in product overviews, collaborative discussions and a plant tour. When not in educational sessions, the Certified Pros enjoyed Pacific Ocean views, including a sunset cruise.
“The Deckorators Pro Summit not only thanks our Certified Pros for their partnership, it also gives us an opportunity to learn more about their product needs and business challenges,” said Chris Camfferman, managing director, marketing for Deckorators. “We use the input and feedback we receive at the Pro Summit to develop and enhance our products and programs.”
To be considered for the Pro Summit, contractors must be a part of the Deckorators Certified Pro program, a deck contractor loyalty program which is designed to increase contractors’ professional business opportunities and drive deck sales and installation services. The Deckorators Certified Pro program provides resources and promotions to contractors to become trained as specialists for Deckorators products.
Certified Pros receive benefits to build and promote their business through a preferred contractor listing on Deckorators.com, are the first to know about new products and promotions prior to the launch and are equipped with information and resources to expertly sell and install Deckorators products.
Another unique opportunity for Certified Pros is the Deckorators apprenticeship program, which helps qualified Certified Pros meet the challenges of the skilled labor shortage by connecting them with vetted and trained local apprentices.
