Update on the Exhibitor Appreciation Happy Hour
2017 has seen many disaster impact people around the globe. In an effort to assist and make it easier for DEMA Members located in recently impacted areas to exhibit at and attend DEMA Show, the DEMA Board of Directors has activated the Disaster Assistance Program. With so many regions and DEMA Members impacted by recent disasters, the Board has voted to reallocate funds typically used for the Exhibitor Appreciation Happy Hour to the Disaster Assistance Program to provide as much assistance as possible to those impacted.

On behalf of the DEMA Staff and Board of Directors, we thank all exhibitors for your continued support! We appreciate your hard work and dedication to the industry, the Show and DEMA. We wish you a successful and productive DEMA Show and prosperity in 2018!
