Sign Shop Tours

 Like our Idea Exchange Conference concept, you will have access to view and learn about other MSSA sign shops. Join us as we virtually tour member companies Canedy Sign & Graphics in Cape Girardeau, MO, and Munn Enterprises in Hattiesburg, MS. You may leave with new ideas to implement into your own facility.

Panel Discussion

 Join Betsy Swan of Allen Industries, Patrick Knotts of faces, and Rachel Walton of Florida Certified Sign Erectors for a discussion on "Fostering Communication" facilitated by Mike Lev of Harbinger. Use this opportunity to learn from these successful companies and come prepared with any questions you may have.

"The Art of Neon" Demonstration, Rick Nipper

 Meet Rick Nipper, custom neon maker and owner of MSSA member company Knoxville Neon USA. Watch as we explore the nuance, patience, and craftsmanship it takes to create neon: a true and long-lasting art.


Building Code Updates: Focus of Florida Edition

 We are combining one of our popular Brown Bag Club Webinars into Live Spirit Week 2.0 with a segment from, Elrod Engineering’s, Rob Alley on sign engineering changes to the Florida building code. Rob's presentations are always sure to educate and entertain.
