D&H expects approximately 300 attendees, who can take advantage of a series of seminars from leading D&H partners Cisco, Intel, Microsoft, HP, and Brother, plus a special session from expert cybersecurity consultant Michael O'Hara. Seminars begin at 10:00 a.m., and the exhibit floor is open from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. The seminar schedule will follow an all-new, more flexible format this year, with sessions repeating over the course of the day to better fit attendees' schedules.

The Solutions & Services initiative is designed to deliver resellers and dealers whatever services or products they need to fill gaps in their own offering, so they can pursue more formidable projects and grow their businesses.
