2016 DHI TRADESHOW
What better way to make industry connections and listen to top-notch educational speakers than to attend DHI? After all the vigorous planning, VT can add yet another DHI (Door and Hardware Institute) convention to the books! This year’s DHI made its appearance at the Orlando World Center Marriot in Orlando, Florida on May 4-6th.
Unlimited resources, presentations, and meetings were compacted into a three day schedule. Items on the schedule included forum education sessions featured by our very own Tim Petersen- Vice President of Sales (Door Division) and Stephen Farley, Vice President of Commercial Sales, Trustile Doors, LLC. Their session topic, “The Green Horizon- What’s Next in Sustainability,” discussed LEED requirements and the latest green initiatives such as Life Cycle Assessments, Health and Environmental Product Declarations, and the new online claims platform among others.
VT selected six top selling doors to be showcased at the booth. Among these elegant pieces were two Supa doors- the Linen fold door with Walnut scalloped panels and ebonized walnut feature strips as well as the Baccarat door featuring a two Panel with S sticking and a double back panel. VT also brought a flush mahogany with a chocolate finish, a flush makore with a ravine finish, a flush white maple with a riverstone finish, and a two panel stile and rail cherry veneer with a clear finish.
Be sure to mark your calendars for the 2017 DHI convention on May 10-12 in Phoenix, Arizona!
