KD Kanopy Takes 2015 By Storm


This year is looking bright for KD Kanopy. Not only are we off to a great start planning our annual charity golf tournament, but we have a ton of conventions to attend throughout the year as well. These events bring together some of the biggest companies and organizations in America, as well as people from all walks of life . Also, it doesn’t hurt that they are held in some pretty fun places! Take a look at what we have coming up.

2015 International Franchise Association 55th Annual Convention

The IFA Convention, held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas takes place on February 15, 2015 and ends on 18 February, 2015. The IFA Convention is one of the biggest events for franchising, franchise management, franchise and distribution, distribution commerce, merchandise, business and entrepreneurship spots. This is an annual event that we often attend and it always proves to be great for networking and building upon the relationships we have with our current franchising clients. In 2015, there are about 2,000 people expected to attend. Below is a picture of our booth at last years IFA.

2015 National Restaurant Association: Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show

The NRA Show will be held May 16-19, 2015 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. The NRA show is a four day showcase of all things culinary. There will be education sessions as well as keynote speakers consisting of world famous chef’s including Elizabeth Falkner, Robert Irvine, Maneet Chauhan and many more! The hospitality industry brings their A game to this event by showcasing up and coming trends in the food/restaurant, and hotel/motel industries. KD Kanopy is no exception. We are proud to show off our canopies and marketing accessories, as well as meet some great people in the process. Check out the NRA Show in action last year here. We are more than excited to attend this show!

United Franchise Group World Expo 

The 2015 UFG World Expo will be held June 14-17th in beautiful Las Vegas, NV. This Expo is another great franchising event we get to attend in 2015. Along with the IFA, the UFG brings together some of the biggest franchises in the world into one giant room in the grand Caesars Palace Hotel & Casino. This three and a half day expo allows us to speak with clients directly and see their canopy in action, as well as address any needs that come up during these events such as set up and teardown time. This helps us to refine and perfect our products even further.

A professionally done tent at events like these goes a long way. Our clients and their custom KD Kanopy tents always stand out from the crowd and make a lasting impression on the participants. We cannot wait to attend all of these events and to show the participants exactly what KD Kanopy can do for them!
