The Security Hardware Distributors Association (SHDA) will hold its 2022 Industry Advancement Summit in the Dallas area on April 25-29, 2022. The 2022 summit, which brings together distributors and manufacturers across the country, will also serve as an official recognition of SHDA’s establishment in 1970 and more than 50 years of supporting the professionalism and proficiency of security hardware distributors.
“Each year we look forward to building business relationships at the summit,” said SHDA President Robert Justen, who also serves as president of Minneapolis-based Doyle Security Products. “We’ve always designed the summit to maximize ways in which manufacturers and distributors can create new business opportunities and strengthen existing relationships.”
On the evening of Monday, April 25, SHDA members will kick-off the summit with a dinner and casino night to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the association’s founding.
“After some delays and sidetracks, we are delighted to finally take the time to celebrate more than 50 years of promoting and supporting our distributors,” said SHDA Executive Director Amy Luckado. “We’re planning a fun and festive evening to commemorate our achievements over a half-century, and we’re looking forward to welcoming past presidents and others who have led SHDA to its success.”
As in years past, the bulk of the five-day conference’s schedule is built around business development meetings and networking events. Returning this year is the Ben Silver Seminar, an educational session covering key business topics. SHDA will welcome Morgan Stanley Wealth Management Head of Cybersecurity Rachel Wilson. Wilson will bring her unique perspective as a former National Security Agency executive on the increasingly hostile cyberenvironment and how companies can defend themselves.
SHDA’s Industry Advancement Summit will be held at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Dallas-Frisco. Registration is now open with an early-bird discount available through March 1.
