Fabricators and other professionals within the decorative surface industry are invited to explore growth opportunities at the International Surface Fabricators Association’s (ISFA) 2023 Annual Conference, which will be held October 16-19 on the Caribbean island of Sint Maarten. Attendees will enjoy four days of educational sessions, business development workshops, networking opportunities and more at the stunning Sonesta Ocean Point Resort.

This signature event will kick off with a welcome reception and dinner amid idyllic views of the sand and sea. The first night will conclude with a celebration that honors the 2023 ISFA Award recipients and the introduction of ISFA’s 2024 board of directors.

In subsequent days, attendees will benefit from powerful presentations, discussions and workshops focusing on strategies to strengthen your business. Topics include leadership approaches that impact all sides of a business, onboarding and optimizing modern technologies and tools to improve production, shop efficiency tactics, and creating a strong and positive company culture. The programming is curated to benefit fabrication companies of all sizes and scopes.
