The DLN Team

The team of Kevin Hinken, Gerritt Smith, Marc Gordon, Cindy Traylor, and Phil Schaafsma will be on hand at DLN’s Booth 203 in the exhibiton space.

Gaylord Palms Resort & Conference Center

On Sunday the 24th, attendees will arrive and begin registration at Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center. The center includes a 4.5-acre soaring glass atrium with winding waterways and lush gardens, so we are looking forward to seeing this in person.

Monday the conference kicks off at 8 AM with a keynote by Dick Johnson, Chairman and CEO of Footlocker. Then sessions begin led by execs from CVS, Dollar Tree, Patagonia, Target, Petco, Gamestop, and many more recognizable brands.

At 4:30 PM, on both Monday and Tuesday, the sessions end with networking in the exhibition space until 6 PM.

There is also Expo time on Monday 1:15 – 6 PM and on Tuesday all day 8 am until 6 PM.

Wednesday closes with a keynote at 9:30 AM.

Marc Gordon, Director of Sales & Marketing, is looking forward to meeting with current and prospective clients at the conference.  “This conference has been an important event for DLN the past several years, and we are eager to attend the sessions, meet with retailers, and make connections.”

Senior Account Executive Kevin Hinken says “I am looking forward to collaborating with my peers in the retail industry and making important connections to help drive our business.”
