Much More Than Endless Speaking...

Finally Vanquish Your Enemies of Success During Your Personalized ‘Hot Seat’ Session!  

What’s a “Hot Seat” Brandon? During our two “hot seat” sessions, owners are broken into different peer groups based on sales volume ranges. During your session, you’ll have a specific amount of time to address the ENTIRE GROUP to do two things that could transform your business forever...  

#1 SHARE Your Best Kept Painting Secret – This is the one single strategy, tactic, or tool that has been responsible for breakout success in your painting business. Don’t be stingy... every attendee will be sharing their secrets and bringing an example to leave with each member of the peer-group.  

#2 SHARE Your Greatest Arch-Enemy in Business – Everyone struggles with a specific, recurring problem in their painting business. It could be recruitment, management, operations, sales, marketing, winter work, breaking into commercial, lead generation... you name it. What if you could finally solve your biggest painting problem by tapping into the wisdom and knowledge of high-achieving painting contractors? You can! Owners report remarkable changes in their painting business when they directly access the “GROUP MASTERMIND” at the Painting Profits Summit. What will you learn?  

Meet & Mingle with Super-Successful Owners & Help Recognize Remarkable Achievements!

Many of the “real” secrets to business success are found when owners sit down face-to-face and share their strategies and stories one-on-one. You’ll get a chance to do that at Thursday night’s welcome reception at The Boatyard – at the epicenter of the Yachting Capital of the world, Boatyard is Fort Lauderdale’s premier new waterfront dining destination. Join us Friday night as we honor the business and personal achievements APPC members at The Academy Awards Dinner.

Hot seats are designed in two parts: Sharing your greatest success strategies and getting help on your biggest struggles. So, what you learn from your “Hot Seat” experience is in your control.

Is the hotel right on the beach? Yes, the Bahia Mar Hotel is BEACHSIDE!!!  

How many attendees do you expect? We expect well over 100 attendees.  

Is there a limited number of rooms in the room block? YES! Last year, we RAN OUT OF ROOMS! Despite warning people again and again to register early, some people ended up staying in off-site hotels that cost MORE than the negotiated rate. If you are considering attending, register and book your room NOW! The rooms will sell out before the tickets do.  

How much do the hotel rooms cost? We have negotiated a low rate of $209 per night, which is very affordable for Fort Lauderdale during the “Snow Bird” season.  

What’s the best airport to fly into? The Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport is 14 minutes from the hotel by Uber, cab, or rental car.  

Are meals included? Yes, all luches and dinners. Thursday welcome reception, Friday/Saturday lunch, Friday dinner at the Academy Awards Ceremony is included in your registration. You are on your own for breakfast, but the hotel has an affordable Market Deli where breakfast is around $7.00.
