The DMP Owners Forum is taking place today at the Wynn Las Vegas as a kick off to ISC West. This ‘by invitation only’ event takes place every year in Las Vegas at such venues as the Vdara or the Wynn the day before the ISC West Exhibit opens. It is hosted by DMP Executive Management, and DMP personally invites the executive level of management (Owner, President, Vice President) at the top 50 DMP dealers based on their annual revenue.
The Owners Forum is an opportunity for like-minded executives and entrepreneurs to network and listen to industry acclaimed speakers who take the stage to present their successful findings. The invitation list changes each year depending on the dealer's DMP sales ranking; a dealer needs to place in the top 50. If you are a DMP dealer and are expecting an invitation, you can expect to receive it 2-3 months in advance of the ISC West Show. At DMP we sincerely welcome all dealers to strive to this level and be invited to this premiere event.
