Now in its third year, the DTE has sold out each of the past two years and early registration makes it likely the event will quickly do so again. Designed for counter sales, outside sales, parts managers and branch managers, the Distributor Training Expo allows suppliers to train 200 salespeople across North America in a single weekend.
An early-bird all-inclusive registration for distributors of $459 is in place until Nov. 30, 2017, then prices will rise to $495. That rate covers all flights, hotels, transportation and meals for distributor attendees. More than half of the 200 available distributor spots (maximum eight per company) have already been sold.
Additionally, event organizers say 11 of 31 supplier openings also have been sold for 2018’s event. Next year’s event will again feature Gold and Silver sponsorships. Organizers say five of the eight Gold sponsorships have been purchased, as well as six of the 23 Silver openings.
