Storm Ventures Group (SVG) CEO and founder, Anthony Delmedico, is set to host the 9th annual “Win The Storm” conference and tradeshow expo. The event targets general contracting, restoration, roofing, and solar companies from around the world, offering advanced education, training, technology, and tactics to help property owners recover after large storms and catastrophic events. The conference also aims to address the skilled labor shortage in the industry and provide solutions for storm recovery.
According to Delmedico, the explosive $100B+ storm and catastrophic event industry faces several issues, including a shortage of labor. The construction industry will need to attract nearly 650,000 additional workers on top of the normal pace of hiring to meet the demand for labor. To address this issue, Delmedico and his team of experts opened up SVG, a consulting management and joint venture firm that focuses primarily on catastrophe management.
One solution to the labor shortage concerns was the SVG University (SVG U) Virtual Reality (VR) Goggles, launched a few years ago. The VR training provides a 360-degree virtual reality environment and comes with the SVG U VR Training App, VR Training Room, and several VR industry-specific courses to help contractors recruit, onboard, and train employees. This technology enables contractors to train indoors in a real-life virtual platform, saving hundreds of hours of training alone and providing proven systems for higher management.
Delmedico emphasizes that underinvestment in technology for training and development has been the root cause of low productivity. The competitive landscape is ever-changing, and SVG University’s Virtual Reality training fills a massive void in the market. The content of SVG U includes a course library of hands-on, engaging, industry-specific training videos with courses, chapters, and testing to help contractors scale.
In a few days, the 9th Win The Storm Conference (WTS) will take place, showcasing solutions to the skilled labor shortage and providing alternative paths to lucrative careers. The conference will include topics such as entrepreneurship, business development, technology, AI, drone photography and video, building team company culture, and more. The three-day event will be held at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Broward Convention Center on March 15-17, 2023.
The conference aims to show contractors throughout the U.S. how to tap into and connect with their local markets, school systems, and colleges to recruit and beat the skilled labor shortage. The event will include educational speakers, panels with live Q&A, over 100 industry-specific breakout sessions, evening receptions, awards night, and an entire tradeshow expo floor full of the industry’s leading vendors and suppliers.
Entrepreneurs, owners, and CEOs looking for real strategies, systems, tools, and the “secret sauce” to grow their companies to millions are welcome to attend the #1 best training in the $100B+ restoration industry.
