IDA Expo Las Vegas
Once a year, the International Door Association hosts the IDAExpo. The week-long conference and exposition is focused on the North American door industry including membership dealers and manufacturers from across the United States and Canada. The IDAExpo includes educational seminars and workshops, two days of industry exhibits, President's Banquet and Awards and Golf Tournament. This year's IDAExpo took place in Las Vegas in late April. Several Hörmann companies exhibited, met with dealers and took the opportunity to get acquainted with their new "Hörmann family" members.
TNR Doors shared their exhibit space with Hörmann High Performance Doors, presenting a powerful new partnership in the high performance door market in North America. Dealers visiting the booth had the opportunity to talk to TNR and HHPD regional sales managers while "test-driving" working models of both companies' high performance door solutions. Featured in the booth were the insulated CHILLFAST Freezer Door, the rubber Park-King garage door and the fabric SpeedCommander 1400. Expo attendance was terrific with exceptional traffic through the booth and very positive dealer response as these door models immediately expand the offering of high performance doors now available to established TNR and HHPD dealers. After the first day of the expo, TNR Doors hosted an enjoyable Dealers' Cocktail event back at the Rio where several TNR and HHPD dealers were invited to mix and mingle in a casual atmosphere with members of our staff and sales teams.
After a busy few days in Las Vegas, we came away with new connections in the Hörmann Group as well as in our dealer network. These new relationships leave us optimistic about new business opportunities to pursue within our growing dealer network, together with the other North American Hörmann divisions.
