I have emailed the Mapei marketing department as you said to see if they would like to have their products, brochures, promoted through our training centre free of charge, heard nothing back.
I thought they would have jumped at the chance, we train over 800 people per year

Im not sure I would jump at the chance to give myself away . Maybe that's not what he meant but that's how I read it .

Hi Its not a person that i was refering to it's Mapeis adesive products, marketing materials, brand awareness that I could promote to people training to be tilers.
Business usually pay thousands to promote their business through advertising streams.

I was going to promote their company for free and send people down their way. I have marketing material already in our centre from BAL, weber, Schluter, Ardex, U Heat, Impey wet rooms, Dural, Marmox, No More Ply, Hardibacker etc which I give out so trainees are familiar with brands when they leave our tiling courses
It's no big deal to me if Mapei doesnt want their business advertised with the rest of them through our centre.
Just thought they might, that's all

Hi Darren, I've just double checked and if it's the same centre it appears it is being dealt with. Have Jason or Chris been in touch?

Hi, I invited Jason and Chris into the centre over 6 months ago and never heard from either of them since they came in.

I rang head office about a month ago again who put me in touch with Stephen the local rep who has been trying to sort things out with some brochures / literature etc.
I think an email come through today saying there is a parcel getting delivered next week.
Stephen gave me some dates when Mapei is running product courses, i have passed those details onto this weeks course
