Attendee Reviews of Previous DHI Summits:


Executive Summit was well worth attending and very much worth the investment.

– Byron Whetstone
President and CEO, American Direct


Attending DHI Executive Summit was an invaluable investment and gave us the opportunity to learn from business leaders and industry peers.

– Marty Sabel
COO, M&D Door & Hardware


Overall, worth every penny.


The right balance between strategic and tactical for this type of session. A tremendous amount of information was covered and I walked away with an understanding that would allow me to implement many of the ideas presented.


It outlined a formula for success in the hardware industry.


Excellent content and presentation.
