November 02, 2016 // Franchising.com // BOCA RATON, Fla. – Tint World® Automotive Styling Centers™, a leading auto accessory and window tinting franchise, hosted its ninth annual National Franchise Convention at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas October 31, providing seminars, sales and technical training, and honoring multiple franchisees for their commitment to success at the fourth annual Awards Banquet for outstanding Tint World® business owners and technicians.
“This is one of my favorite times of the year,” said Charles J. Bonfiglio, Tint World® CEO. “It’s a chance for the entire Tint World® family to come together in one place and share and learn from each other.”
The Tint World® National Franchise Convention and Awards Banquet allowed all attending Tint World® owners and employees to benefit from special training sessions, round table discussions, and meetings with vendor partners; and offered the opportunity to networking with the thousands of automotive exhibitors at the 2016 SEMA Show. Current Tint World® owners had an exclusive opportunity to meet with a number of new vendors and received a sneak peek at what is in store for 2017.
“This event is all about our franchisees,” said Paul Pirro, executive vice president of Tint World®. “We want to show our appreciation for them, but we also want to go beyond that and offer them the opportunity for continuing education and the ability to meet our key vendor partners.”

“We’ve got so many owners and their employees growing their business and we want to show that they are appreciated for their hard work,” said Bonfiglio. “This is the fourth time we’ve done our awards, and every year I’m even more impressed than the last at what our owners have accomplished.”
