Get ready for an epic battle in LasVegas at the 3M booth at the 2014 SEMA Show. 3M is challenging all graphics installers to showcase their unique talents and expertise using 3MTM Wrap Film Series 1080, and battle it out in the inaugural Wrap2Wrap Battle. Graphics installers will compete in online knock-out rounds beginning August 11, with the final two contenders sparring in a head-to-head competition on Thursday, November 6, at the 2014 SEMA Show.

The Wrap2Wrap Battle is open to all installers of 3M Wrap Film Series 1080 in the United States (except where prohibited by law). The contest is an opportunity for installers to demonstrate their skills and compete against industry peers, with judges and the public helping to decide installers’ fates each round.

During this final round, contenders will direct 3M Preferred Graphics Installers in one final wrap challenge live on the SEMA Show floor. A panel of judges will crown the champion.
