Team Autogeek to visit Rupes in Milan, Italy! (http://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/ask-expert-featuring-mike-phillips/81658-team-autogeek-visit-rupes-milan-italy.html)

We're excited to announce this Sunday a team from Autogeek will be traveling across the Atlantic ocean for a 3-day visit with the engineers and marketing staff at Rupes in Milan, Italy. :righton:

Rupes Schedule

On Monday there will be a tour of Rupes corporate offices as well as their manufacturing facilities.


On Tuesday Mike Phillips will be the guest speaker at their International Sales Meeting to talk about current trends today and moving into the future in the car detailing industry. Mike has also been asked to share at this meeting what the detailing environment is like in the United States and how Rupes Bigfoot polishers are carving out a strong niche and following among all segments of the market.


On Wednesday Rupes Marketing Manager Francesco Ginocchio and staff have organized a tour of Milan and the surrounding area to share a taste of Italy and all it's history and beauty!




This is exciting news and a new chapter in Autogeek's history as well as partnership with the Rupes company.

I know Mike will be taking a lot of pictures to share on the forum so stay tuned to AGO! Im the MAN

Good to see! Looks like Rupes is comin' in hot into the detailing world. Can't wait to see Mike teach how to use it in September.

What, no contest to take one lucky contestant along?Oh yes....do another count down on posts again. That was the craziest thing I've seen on this forum. So many people on here in the middle of the night.

Have fun and bring back some fun facts about Rupes. Just don't tell them we don't all use their pads and polishes all the time.

It's a real honor to travel to Milan, Italy and be the guest of Rupes. I really like their polishers and sanders and later today I'll share a project my buddy Jay and I knocked out last night using Duettos with Rupes pads and polishes.

Ask an Rupes Engineer a question?
I know a lot of you if given the chance, would like to ask the engineers at Rupes a few questions.

Since I'll be there in person attending meetings with the engineers, if anyone has a question they would like to ask, if it's a serious question and asked in a professional and courteous manner, I will be glad to ask these questions while I'm there and then post the answers when I return to work.

Sharing pictures on the fly
I will also be taking pictures with my iPhone and posting them to my Facebook page starting on Sunday and continuing throughout the entire trip for anyone that wants to follow along.

Trusty dusty Canon
I'm also taking along my trusty dusty Canon T5i and with their permission, if I'm allowed to take pictures I will and then I'll post them here on the AGO forum.

Rupes Detail Shop
Marco D'Inca has been to Autogeek and attended one of my detailing boot camp classes and since then he's been building a new state-of-the-art detailing studio. I've seen a few pictures of this new shop while it was being built so I'm also excited to see it in person.
