Window & Door Dealer Day Celebrates Excellence

WDDA event features networking, education, round table discussions and an awards presentation
More than 80 professionals from across the country gathered in Las Vegas on Sept. 13 for a full day of professional and industry development. With an emphasis on networking and sharing insights, dealers left the program with actionable ideas to further their business.
“It’s encouraging to see people take time out of their business to work on their business,” said Katie Gregg, WDDA Associate Director. "The turnout this year suggests that the industry is thriving. Dealers want to hear from other professionals on how they are managing growth, maintaining and attracting staff, and planning for the future, and I think that’s exactly what the participants got from their time at Dealer Day.”

By Katie Gregg, WDDA

In June, we wrote an article on the importance of the art of your sale. And earlier this month, business growth strategist Madeleine MacRae joined us at Window & Door Dealer Day in Las Vegas to present on sales and marketing tactics during her sessions “What’s the Truth About Trial and Error?” and “Building Your Business: Old School Versus New School.”

With varied focus on customer relationships, goal setting, hiring, marketing, and more, the purpose of sharing these tips and tools is the same – moving your business forward.
