Welcome to the Brand Connection Expo, a table-top show designed to connect your customers with new ideas.

UMAPP has combined the best of its two major shows - the former Fire & Ice Booth Show with the newer end buyer expo.

The result? Not just another show, but an experience. A fun, summer golf outing the day before plus a national keynote speaker on show day, makes this a two-day networking and business event meeting with not only distributor sales reps but also their customers.

Early discount special: Sign up by June 1 for $50 off each table. Register now, pay later, if you choose. Early rate: $550 / $500
(regular rate $600 / $550).
Dan Nevins of the Wounded Warrior Project is a professional speaker who has been inspiring audiences around the world with his message of perseverance, resiliency and hope for more than a decade, and has been featured on the Steve Harvey Show, Good Morning America, BuzzFeed, Fox News, CBS News and ABC News among others.

A highly decorated soldier, Dan was severely injured during combat in Iraq in 2004 after an improvised explosive device (IED) detonated beneath his vehicle. He lost both legs below the knee, and lives with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and the emotional wounds of war.
