2017 Weat Coast Brush Manufacturer's Association Meeting Update

Tue May 23, 2017

The 2017 meeting of the West Coast Brush Manufacturer’s Association is shaping up to be a well-attended event.  As of today, 57% of our room block has been taken and there are still a large number of people/companies who have not sent in their RSVP or made their hotel reservation.

As our attendee list is turning out to be robust, please make your reservations sooner rather than later so I can increase the room block accordingly.  The Grand Hyatt typically has 95%-100% occupancy and I want enough time to get more rooms for us.

I’m not trying to be redundant but below is the info from my April 6 email:

This is a reminder that the WEST COAST MANUFACTURERS ASSOCIATION will have its 2017 WCBMA Meeting at the Grand Hyatt Resort and Spa on Kauai from October 1-5, 2017. Our group has been to this property four times and it remains a favorite of many.  Links are below for the following:

For those who have not attended in the past, look at the 39 resorts that we have been to.  They are all spectacular and lend themselves to serious networking.  At the conclusion of the meeting, we consolidate the expenses and then invoice each of the attendees for their share, with no difference in price for suppliers or active brush manufacturers.

Repeated below are the pertinent facts for your planning purposes and the hotel will accept reservations at this time.


  • Invited are all brush manufacturers west of the Mississippi River, and
  • All suppliers regardless of their location


  • The 2017 West Coast Brush Manufacturers Association


  • Sunday, October 1, 2017 – through Thursday, October 5, 2017 plus the hotel will honor our favorable price three days pre and post-convention.
