Can you believe we’re already heading into March and a new spring season? I know that’s good news for many of you who are ready to shake the winter chill and move outdoors. I want to share with you what the Wanda team has been up to during the first quarter of 2012, and whet your appetite for some of the exciting activities we have planned for spring.
Our first event of the New Year took place in late January, as I headed north to Montreal, Canada, where A.B. Warehouse, our very first Canadian warehouse distributor to carry the Wanda Waterbase system, rolled out the red carpet for the 2012 “Evening with Wanda” season kick-off. I emceed the event and shared with new customers how theWanda Waterbase system is helping the Canadian collision repair industry utilize our core brand proposition of simplicity,color, and value, to get great finish results and exceptional color match accuracy—all through a an easy-to-use, value-priced system.
More than 30 area distributors and jobbers attended the Montreal event and were treated to refreshments and a special anniversary cake featuring my Wanda illustrated character. The Lingenfelter Performance Engineering LTA concept car that was first unveiled at SEMA 2010, was also showcased at the event, where guests could see firsthand the car’s custom Wanda Orange Mocha paint finish. Everyone was invited to come back the next day to attend a complimentary application demonstration of the Wanda Waterbase system at the A.B. Warehouse training facility. Check out some of the great pictures of the event at wanda.wpengine.com/news-events/wanda-photo-gallery.
In February, I headed to Detroit, MI, to attend the popular Autorama show and had a great time meeting lots of collision repair professionals and car enthusiasts alike, who wanted to know more about the Wanda brand! I then skipped over to sunny California to participate at the M.E.S. Autobody & Detail Supplies event in Bloomington. Next, I’ll be hosting several Evening with Wanda events throughout March and April in Wisconsin, Minneapolis and Missouri. If you live in or near any of those states and want more information on locations, check out the calendar of events. Hope to see you there!
