Showroom Membership Benefits

  • Industry Voice - DPHA offers its members a focused place to meet and interact with professionals across our industry to discuss our common goals and concerns. It is the only place where your voice has equal weight with those of your competitors, both large and small.
  • Education and Training ResourcesDPHA University is the perfect tool for onboarding new associates and refreshing seasoned ones.  Our Education Manuals provide a breadth of product category training, and The Vault uses the information from the manuals to create an engaging online testing platform allowing managers to hold their associates accountable for the information they're learning and give them a sense of accomplishment. Speakers at the annual conference present new and interesting thought-provoking ideas that are relevant to our industry and the world we are living in.
  • Network with industry leaders – Connecting is one of the cornerstones of DPHA, and members are given opportunities to network throughout the year on our social platforms, committee calls and at our annual conference. Membership is made up of the industry’s best showrooms, manufacturers and reps. Networking with DPHA allows you to share experiences, create lasting relationships and turn those into business relationships. In a large international industry, DPHA makes it seem smaller and more intimate.
  • Increased Profitability – DPHA believes that increased profits come from investing in your people. While other groups may focus on the bottom line, we focus on the top line.
  • Access to the latest products – The Product Showcase at the annual conference allows DPHA members to see the latest and greatest products from our manufacturing members in a more intimate and personal setting than large trade shows. DPHA is an excellent source of information on new products and market developments, and the weekly newsletter, Connections, provides great information on the industry.
  • Gain competitive advantages – Only DPHA members have access to the 20+ industry education manuals and training sessions offered at the annual conference. Through volunteering on different committees, one gets to contribute their own knowledge and also share and learn from others.
  • National recognition – Awards are given out at the DPHA annual conference each year, including Showroom of the Year and Showroom Professional of the Year.

"With the ever growing market over the past 4 years due to the influx of people moving to Florida, MH Fine Hardware has inevitably grown as well in order to service our market accordingly – everyone knows growth means “new employees” and new employees means more training and a huge success in being able to get our new hires up and running with the vast learning curve within our industry, has been the DPHA University & Vault program.”

"DPHA has been a big part of our company’s growth. The relationships with manufacturers, rep agencies, and other companies like ours have all contributed to our success. The sharing of knowledge and ideas and support from industry professionals energizes me each year, and I return from the DPHA Conference renewed in enthusiasm and inspiration and excited to share with my team and my community."

"When creating a new hire training program, I knew the DPHA University would be an integral part. The DPHA University and The Vault program contain a wealth of information that explains the “nuts and bolts” of our industry. The learning provided is invaluable not only to those just starting in the decorative plumbing and hardware industry but also seasoned professionals. I highly recommend including The Vault in all your learning efforts with your teams."
