The IDAExpo is the premier educational venue for those who derive their living from the door and access systems industry. In addition, exhibitors from throughout the globe display the latest in products and services making the IDAExpo the place to be to learn about what’s new.
You can’t afford to miss the educational programming at the 2014 IDAExpo! Each year, IDEA produces two full days of seminars covering the most timely and critical challenges and opportunities facing door and access systems dealers. Attendees take away solutions, new ideas and answers to critical questions that benefit their companies and enhance profitability, efficiency and overall performance.
All educational seminars at the IDAExpo are CEU-eligible. Topics range from business management, sales and marketing, current regulatory issues and technical training. You will find motivation and quality education from nationally-recognized professional speakers who bring their expertise to our industry at this event
Focused on the specific needs of Door Dealer Companies
It is the event’s primary reason for existence. Unlike other construction-related trade shows where it’s difficult to single out door dealers from the general attendees, the IDAExpo™ audience buys and specifies the door-related products you sell. Because of this focus, you get much more value from your participation as an exhibitor of the IDAExpo™.
Without sugar coating the response, the IDAExpo™ has drawn an average of 2,685 attendees to the past four
events. This was accomplished during one of the most difficult market conditions experienced globally in history. These professional Door Dealers were ones who not only survived the soft market, but in many cases realized productive, profitable sales years. For those who exhibit, the IDAExpo™ provides an opportunity to meet face-to-face with these buyers...real buyers...buyers seeking new products and opportunities.
