DPHA heads to Austin September 22nd -26th!

The 2021 Annual DPHA Conference intends to keep it weird in Austin! We will be offering an exclusive event that follows all of the current 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 10' and include a virtual booth for our hybrid virtual conference. DPHA is one of the only in-person industry events happening in 2021, to say we are excited to have everyone work together to build business in the post COVID climate is an understatement! We will welcome all those craving new products and industry rich content throughout the weekend. Dealers, Reps, Manufactures and A+D all under one roof for the first time since 2019, you don't want to miss thatI
