"Being a Vendor is a terrific way to interact with DRA members one-on-one, to put faces to names, to get an update on their year, and know how to best serve their current and future needs. We really appreciate the "homecoming" and the opportunity to share our own industry updates during the Vendor Intro's. We're in this together - feeling more of a Partner than simply a Vendor. Having a week of insight into the challenges and magic of the DRA world and the people who make it what it is, is priceless." -- Patty Ceglio, Coolworks.com
