Tempe, AZ – On the heels of their sold-out “hands-on” Restoration Symposium in Nashville, Tennessee, Piranha Marketing CEO Lisa Wagner announced the dates for their national “Rugs & Restoration Road Show.”

“The feedback from our blend of hands-on technical training and our education-based marketing systems was phenomenal, so we decided to hit the road and help cleaners and restorers coast-to-coast grow their businesses,” shared Lisa.

The nationwide tour will visit Tampa, Atlanta, Denver, Seattle, Las Vegas, and end up in Phoenix for the Rich Cleaner Conference & “Disaster Demo” Trade Show.

Lisa, a Certified Rug Specialist, will be leading the high-end rugs and specialty flooring session. Technical training on improving rug cleaning results, mitigating damage to textiles from floods, and trust-building marketing strategies to high-end homes and large commercial contracts to generate more loss work from cleaning clients.

David Brinkley, Piranha’s Vice President, will lead a team of Restoration Coaches on how to secure work as an independent “small fry” in a large loss environment. Marketing strategies for generating residential and commercial losses will be covered, as well as strategies for building profitable relationships with insurance professionals, existing clients, and referral networks.

Joe Polish, Piranha’s Founder, will be the special headlining presenter at the Tampa and Atlanta events, sharing some of the most successful marketing systems working for his clients this year.

The Road Show will wrap up in Phoenix at the September 23-26 Rich Cleaner Conference & Trade Show where the hands-on “Disaster Demos” will include flooding the entire hotel restaurant and its contents.  The structural and contents clean-up, dry-out, remote monitoring, estimating and documenting will allow teams of attendees to literally get their feet wet and learn the entire scope of a major loss.

Fire restoration will also be instructed as teams of attendees will convert major smoke contaminated rooms into non-smoking rooms.  New tools, techniques, and technologies will be used for odor-removal of the structure and contents.

For more information about the Rugs and Restoration Road Show can be found at or by calling 615-720-1231.
