. HDAW will be held Jan. 18-21 at The Mirage in Las Vegas.
During HDAW '09, distributor and supplier companies participated in 1,409 scheduled meetings, while the 2010 event expects over 1,700 meetings. One-on-one meeting participation is limited to suppliers that are members of one of the sponsoring organizations and have registered and reserved exhibit space at HDAW.
"We have had a great response for the one-on-one meetings this year, and are in the process of putting the requested matches together to get out to the distributors and suppliers by the end of December," said Dave Bell, co-chair. "We are anticipating a very well attended and successful conference again in 2010."
