Important Update for DEMA Show Attendees and Exhibitors Regarding Hurricane Irma

DEMA Show will be open for business as planned on Wednesday November 1.

We have everyone impacted by Irma and Harvey in our thoughts.  Please consider donating to established charities that will be helping in the recovery efforts from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, such as the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, local charities, and others.
