DPHA Annual Conference and Product Showcase


The 2015 Annual Conference and Product Showcase will be held from October 15th through the 17th at the Hilton at Torry Pines, La Jolla, CA.

The hotel sits atop the cliffs in the Torrey Pines State Reserve and overlooks the legendary Torrey Pines Golf Course and the majestic Pacific Ocean. It's a beautiful property that has undergone a complete renovation. All of the guest rooms were remodeled within the last year, and offer a view of the gardens, golf course or the Pacific horizon.

Amenities include the Spa at Torrey Pines, heated pool, fitness center and a world class, U.S. Open golf course. DPHA will also be hosting a golf outing in the afternoon on Wednesday, October 14th. After all, how can we resist teeing it up at this venue?

The hotel is located approximately 20 minutes from the San Diego Airport, and is a five-minute drive to the heart of La Jolla, renowned for its shopping, dining and majestic views.

We are also pleased to have negotiated another fantastic rate of $189 per night (plus tax). To reserve, call 877-414-8020. Tell the agent that you are attending the DPHA Conference.

The Program and Showcase Committee, under the astute leadership of Gary Erickson (Renaissance Design Studio) and Richard Campbell (Belmont Hardware), will again offer dynamic programs and top-notch speakers who will present customized presentations to meet the specific needs of decorative plumbing and hardware dealers, manufacturers and representatives.

There are 60 exhibit spaces (10' wide by 8' deep) available for the 2015 DPHA Product Showcase, and applications for booth spaces will be issued sometime around the first of May. If you are interested in displaying in front of the most important group of showroom owners in North America, send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
