IDAExpo is focused on TM 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™. If one compares the square foot cost for an IDAExpo™ exhibit to that of other construction-related trade shows, the IDAExpo™ is the least expensive of all. Here are four examples: r *OUFSOBUJPOBM #VJMEFST 4IPX QFS TRVBSF GPPU WFSTVT *%"&YQP *%"&YQP r .FUBM$PO *%"&YQP r 'FODF5FDI *%"&YQP -&44 '03 r %PPS )BSEXBSF *OTUJUVUF QFS TRVBSF GPPU WFSTVT -&44 '03 9 QFS TRVBSF GPPU WFSTVT -&44 '03 9 QFS TRVBSF GPPU WFSTVT -&44 '03 9 The IDAExpo™ will provide additional savings for those who exhibit in Nashville as they will receive a discount on their exhibit space in 2014…we refer to it as continuity support. The IDAExpo™ Operating Committee is responsible for the planning and execution of the event, and is utilizing input from the membership as well as surveys such as the one conducted by Industry Insights. This Committee is comprised of four dealers and four manufacturers. Therefore, a balance view, representing the various aspects of the event is involved. Ultimately, it is the decision of the IDA Board of Directors that guides the future of the IDAExpo™, again with representation of both dealers and manufacturers from throughout the globe. Beginning in 2013, the IDAExpo™ has been and will continue to be enhanced to place an even greater emphasis on edu- cation. As an example, the 2013 IDAExpo™ to be conducted in Nashville, Tennessee, will feature an extensive educational program for door technicians. Through the year 2015 and beyond, the event will focus on expanding educational op- portunities, and enhancing the presentation environment for exhibitors of products and services. Both components of the event will receive equal attention. 10 International Door & Operator Industry™ 9
