PITTSBURGH — The VERSATEX Road Show will tour much of the eastern U.S. beginning March 9 and 10 in Durham and Goldsboro, N.C., and March 11 in Irmo, S.C.
Between this spring and the fall, nationally-recognized builder Bobby Parks will bring a training center on wheels to about 100 dealer locations. He’ll conduct informal, informative demonstrations, specially designed for industry professionals, at every stop. “In the course of about 20 weeks, we’ll roll through 27 states east of the Mississippi,” Parks said. “You’ll have a chance to see the latest VERSATEX products, pick up inspiration and best practices, and get to know some VERSATEX team members and dealers, too.”
Opening tour dates include:
• Tuesday, March 9, noon to 2 p.m., at Talbert Building Supply, 3101 Hillsborough Road, Durham, N.C.; RSVP (919) 286-5561
• Wednesday, March 10, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Goldsboro Builder Supply, 701 Patetown Road, Goldsboro, N.C.; RSVP (919) 734-4074
• Wednesday, March 11, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Stier Supply, 1075 Lake Murray Blvd., Irmo, S.C.; RSVP (803) 999-1882
Parks is a nationally-known deck, porch, patio, and remodeling contractor with more than 30 years’ experience. He’s completed residential and commercial projects valued at more than $40 million; regularly presents building and business courses; often speaks at remodeling shows; and contributes widely to trade publications. He has spearheaded the Road Show since 2015.
“This year the Road Show provides more value and covers more ground than ever. It’s a whole lot more than just than a guy with a card table; you’ll see real techniques, tools, products and experts. You can learn a lot just by walking through the instructional exhibits in our roomy new trailer,” said VERSATEX’s sales V.P., Rick Kapres.
Building-supply dealers interested in hosting Road Show events still have time to apply for spots on the 2021 schedule. The website offers a dealer application form.
