For 50 years, the annual SHDA Summit has served the security hardware industry by featuring invaluable One-on-One business appointments where leading Distributors can meet with the more than 60 SHDA member Manufacturer partners in one convenient location. This year, we will honor 50 years of industry prosperity, explore ways to increase employee engagement and maximize performance, and build and strengthen manufacturer-distributor partnerships for 2020 and beyond. We’ll welcome SHDA Past Presidents and other industry “Legends” to this year’s special summit, as we celebrate the past and secure the future of Security Hardware Distributors.
The 50th Anniversary Summit will once again feature three full days of One-on-One appointments at the Embassy Suites beginning Tuesday, May 5 at 10:30 AM and ending on Thursday, May 7 at 5:25 PM. The One-on-One sign up session (fondly referred to as “The Running of the Bulls”) will be held Monday, May 4 from 4:30 pm – 5:30 PM
All appointments will be twenty-five (25) minutes in length, allowing distributors to make up to 48 appointments! SHDA encourages distributor companies to bring more than one principal to enhance their capacity and increase their exposure to all manufacturer participants. Any company that purchases a Manufacturer Suite and stops taking appointments before 5:00pm on Thursday, May 7 could forfeit its privilege to participate in future Industry Advancement Summits.
