The IDA Expo is a great opportunity for the Wayne Dalton dealers to get face to face contact with customers and showcase what's new in the industry. The Expo was important this year because of the new Model 7409 Harrington Carriage House Wood door, which allowed dealers to have a face to face showcase with new customers. The commercial doors were also a big hit this year, and we can't wait until next year to showcase even more products.
