Once in the industry Denham served 10 years as senior vice president at Geiger and prior to that was senior vice president at ASI. Most recently he served on the PPAI Board of Directors (2015-2020) and was chair in 2018 in addition to numerous other industry boards and industry organizations. Dale is based in Tampa with his wife & 4 kids.

END-USER / CLIENT ATTENDEES:

For the final two hours of the show, distributors will be allowed to bring clients. This is not intended to be as big as our Road Show, in fact, we encourage distributors to escort their clients on the show floor (there's no way they can see it all in two hours). This will give you the opportunity to bring clients who have a big project in the works or may have missed the show in August.

  • Distributor members, who are also show attendees, can invite clients to attend between 1-2 pm.

  • Distributors will be charged $25 for each client that attends.

  • You are responsible for escorting your clients and collecting all leads.
