DPHA heads to New Orleans October 21st -25th!

The 2020 Annual DPHA Conference will be held in the Big Easy and we will be offering an exclusive event that follows socially distanced safety guidelines. The Program + Showcase Committee have coordinated leading industry relevant educational keynotes, top tier vendor showcase and plenty of time to network and build business strategies.

Exhibit spaces will be 10' by 20' this year allowing the addition of a safe staging area. DPHA is one of the only in-person industry events happening in 2020, to say we are excited to have everyone work together to build business in the post COVID climate is an understatement!
