“I get a lot from IDA. Going to the IDAExpo has exposed me to worldwide suppliers, educational programs that can’t be found anywhere else, and the ability to learn from people who do the same thing I do and have overcome challenges I’m facing.”

Education. Exhibits. Excitement.

All three well describe the value of attending the IDAExpo. The educational programming produced each year by the Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation (IDEA) continues to set an educational benchmark in our industry. The exhibits provide attendees an opportunity to discover what’s new, and to actually see and touch new products. In addition, visiting with product provider personnel face-to-face is truly invaluable. And, of course, such events as the Golf Outing, Motorcycle Ride and President’s Awards Banquet are very exciting to enjoy.
