2022 grand expo sponsorship

What’s new in 2022?

Due to the success and growth of the event in past years, we’re excited to announce that we’ve moved the 2022 Vendor Summit and Grand Expo to the hallowed grounds of Lambeau Field! This new venue will provide us with more space and a historic backdrop for our incredible event.

What is the Vendor Summit?

Our Team at Drexel invites you to our 2022 Vendor Summit held on Thursday, February 24, 2022. As a valued partner of Drexel, we plan to share our strategy and vision for the upcoming year with our valued partners, including you. It’s extremely important that you attend; we are only as strong as our weakest link. Let’s work together to strengthen our business. Exact times, RSVP requests, and more details will be communicated closer to the event. For now, please save the date.

What is the Grand Expo?

The Grand Expo is Drexel’s biennial Contractor Appreciation Event and Product Showcase which will be held on Friday, February 25, 2022. As we’ve done in previous years, we’re asking you, our supplier, to team up with Drexel to present a full day of events for our key contractors from all eight of our locations. This is the only event or show investment you will make with us in 2022.

How can you benefit? What is your return on investment?

You would like Drexel to sell more of your products; this is how you can create more of a demand. We expect builders from Kenosha to Green Bay, from Sheboygan to Madison, and beyond. The 2020 event saw more than 1,000 attendees throughout the day. The February 2022 event is perfect timing, as your products will be top of mind as they jump into the busy season.
