The JW Marriott Indianapolis will be the meeting place for our 2024 One Team, One Dream Conference. DPA suppliers will be exhibiting their latest products and meeting face-to-face with each DPA distributor attendee. Exclusive promotions will be available for all distributors that place orders during the show. This is the perfect time to connect with fellow safety experts and increase your profits. You cannot afford to miss this!

Once again, DPA's Safety, Industrial and Janitorial shows will take place simultaneously (in separate exhibit halls). This means that in addition to the Safety show, you will have an opportunity to network with distributors and vendors in the Industrial and Janitorial product categories throughout the course of the conference.

We look forward to seeing you at DPA's 2024 "One Team, One Dream" Conference in Indianapolis, IN!

Distributor Protocol

Since the meetings (“rotations”) are structured so that each distributor has the opportunity to meet with every supplier, distributors must plan to attend ALL rotations.

Special Promotions

DPA distributors who attend the conference will receive special offers from our exhibiting suppliers. These show special promotions will be emailed to you a few weeks before the show. Cash prizes will be awarded to distributors who place orders with the most suppliers and also the largest volume of orders at the show.

Dance Card

At the conference, all distributors will receive a dance card with a list of suppliers that are exhibiting. Each supplier must initial your card during the rotation meetings to show that you met with them at their booth. At the end of the conference, your dance card will be collected by a DPA staff member.
