Over 150 window film professionals came to see manufacturer, supplier and distributor exhibits, and to attend valuable seminars to learn from top experts in their field as well as from one another. There were over 30 registrants for accreditation courses. Fifty professionals competed for the trophies and cash awards and recognition at the event organized by many volunteers from the IWFA Members Action Committee.
