The SMACNA Premier Partner Program is the most powerful sales, marketing, brand and relationship-building tool available within the SMACNA business environment.  A small number of companies are selected by SMACNA to interact year-round with members at the Annual Conference and Product Show, plus at formerly private member meetings that have never before been open to sponsors. 

Premier Partners are welcomed into the elite levels of the SMACNA business environment where members invite the Partners to interact with them year-round in a collegial, peer-to-peer, solutions-oriented environment. 

The Program is limited to a small number of industry partners.  It offers the industry’s highest level of interactivity with SMACNA decision-makers. 

Industry leading companies who believe that the SMACNA Premier Partner Program is a good fit for them should contact Mel Poole at (704) 664-1714, or, for a candid discussion of the program’s benefits and costs.
