With over 500 attendees, the Piano Technicians Guild 2014 Annual Convention and Technical Institute was quite the show stopper. Held in Atlanta, Georgia, technicians from the United States and around the world gathered to learn new techniques and to share ideas. From July 16th to July 20th, the event allowed technicians to attend classes, participate in discussions, and to take their certification exams.
In the showcase, Hailun USA was the main presenter and demonstrated eight pianos, among them including the 2012 and 2013 MMR Piano Line of the Year Award Winners Hailun Upright 5P and the Hailun Grand 178. Joe DeFio, the Hailun Senior Vice President, was very pleased with the response from spectators. “I like watching people’s faces when they sit down at one of our pianos. They see the quality and the improvements that we’re making to them, and they’re impressed.”
Among showcasing eight amazing pianos, Hailun USA also provided all the pianos used in the classes to train the technicians throughout the five day conference. The Piano Technician Guild President, Norman Cantrell, said he was “…thankful for Hailun’s participation and we’re very appreciative of our long term cooperation and strategic partnership.” The training’s would not have been possible without the assistance of Hailun USA.
With the help of Hailun USA, the PTG 2014 Annual Conference and Training Institute was a complete success. Hailun USA looks forward to participating in future conferences and helping technicians achieve their goals.
