Networking At The Show

We provide two signature opportunities to connect with attendees while at HD Expo. The Opening Drive Party gets things started at Top Golf on the first night of the show, where guests network with friends old and new as they celebrate being together again.

Party by the Pool is the largest and most talked about see-and-be-seen soiree of the year. Guests mingle poolside in Las Vegas, meeting new colleagues and catching up with peers at HD Expo’s legendary poolside party. Put your brand name on these evenings of networking and snag a VIP networking venue for your company.
