DPHA is going VIRTUAL!


The events of the last year have changed brick and mortar retail and decorative plumbing and hardware showroom operations forever. There’s a new paradigm for communicating with and engaging customers, the trades, team members and industry partners. In the infamous words of the Grateful Dead, “What a long strange trip it’s been.”

Below is just a taste of what DPHA CONNECT 2020 will have to offer: 

  • An online, interactive exhibitor showcase with all of your favorite manufacturers
  • Live-streamed, industry specific keynote presentations
  • An exclusive + interactive Professional Development Training opportunity for you and/or your staff

Connecting at DPHA’s first ever virtual conference is essential. It is the only opportunity to work with best-in-class showroom owners, industry leading manufacturers and the nation’s most accomplished rep agencies, to capitalize on the industry’s most successful practices and to come together as a community stronger, smarter and more engaged. And the biggest perk, there is no need to travel for DPHA CONNECT 2020!
