CONCRETE COLLEGE 2014
It’s that time of year again. The chill wind of fall comes upon us and over 50 contractors and dealers from around the world come together in Paragould, Arkansas, for one purpose – the annual Allen Concrete College. Last year saw attendees from Connecticut to Mexico arrive at Allen headquarters to learn the tricks of the trade. They even demo’ed many products from the Allen line-up — some of them for the very first time.
“I had never been on a riding trowel machine before, so I got some experience on that,” said 2013 attendee Ryan Prince. “I feel that if I have to demo one for a customer now I’ll actually know what I’m doing.”
For two days, attendees learn terminology and methods to provide flat and level concrete floors and how to use certain tools (including Allen tools). They even have a chance to chat with the Allen family. Attendees can learn much from the AEC staff and can also bounce ideas off of the fellow attendees.
“Great group of guys here,” said 2013 attendee Brady Frederick. “It’s great to see all the people from different companies and different states just greeting and meeting one another. It was just awesome.”
The 2014 Allen Concrete College takes place October 6th – 7th in Paragould, Arkansas. For more information, contact Jennifer at 800-643-0095 or check out our Concrete College page.
