Having a “Blast” at the 2013 PGI Convention

Everyone at Papertec is just thrilled to have participated in our first Pyrotechnics Guild International Convention. Known this year as “BOOM & a Blast”, the PGI’s annual convention is an exciting weeklong event that includes technical seminars, classes, a trade show, an art show, a banquet, and exciting nightly pyrotechnic displays. The 2013 PGI Convention ran from August 10-16 and was held in beautiful Butler County, PA.Papertec-Google-plus_03

We had an amazing time, and met a whole host of great people including many of our current and past customers. As well, the outstanding atmosphere and set up of PGI’s 2013 convention, gave us the opportunity to make new friends and customers and spread the word about our specialty papers, films, packing tapes, and boards. Some of our favorite parts of the weeklong celebration included:

We had a chance to check out everything from lectures to more hands-on presentations.

·Trade Show
Trade shows are always a great way for Papertec share our amazing products and ideas. PGI 2013 gave us a first chance to mingle with leaders in the Class B and C pyrotechnics industry.

·Public Displays
Every night was a celebration, with music, food, and simply the best fireworks displays we have ever seen!

Overall PGI 2013, certainly lived up to the “Boom and a Blast” title! We learned a ton, gained new friends and customers, and had our own blast! No doubt, we will be returning for PGI 2014 next year. To learn more about the PGI you can always visit their website.
