2024 CDX Exhibitors
What a big year! We are thankful for you, our good partners in manufacturing, distribution, and services. Our attention is turning to the 2024 Contractor Deck Expo on Tuesday, January 30th.
Thank you in advance for “bringing the magic,” for your diligent, passionate preparation to make CDX 2024 a meaningful, effective event. We know you will bring a lot of value to CDX, and we hope that you will get a lot of value from it too.
We will stay in touch over the next several weeks. The form on this page is a tool for you to tell us about your needs and plans for your exhibit, to help us help you. You can always make adjustments later – just reach out to us or visit personally.
As the CDX approaches, here are a few things to think about:
Bring real vs. Abstract
Bring what they can’t get online. The more real, the better – real people, real displays, real samples and giveaways, hands-on demos – that’s why they’re coming to see you! Abstract elements of a display would include brochures, banners, iPads or TVs playing promo videos, etc., which is all good and well, but often the same info is easily found online.
Bring winners vs. rabbit trails
Focus on the winning products. Please present clear, straightforward information on great deck-related products stocked in town during the 2024 busy season. We are looking forward to meeting with each of you about this!
Bring product brands
From the builder’s perspective, CDX is an exhibition of deck-product manufacturer brands. Represent the manufacturing brand more than the distribution company, please.
Bring as much as you want!
Regardless of the exhibitor fee, instead of confining your exhibit space, if possible, we would rather give you as much space as you want – as long as you will use it well. Let’s talk soon, so we at DSS can know how we can help, in terms of space, displays, samples, product pricing from us, or whatever you need!
Bring the experts
The builders are coming to talk to YOU. Our customers are smart people. Ask their opinions and be ready to answer a lot of good questions. You probably want to staff your exhibit with experts of your own, maybe even from headquarters.
Bring the magic
Last CDX, our sales team brought in 300 builders – in a snowstorm! All of us exhibitors (including The Deck Superstore) are presenting to builders their business partnerships for 2024. Preparation is essential. Thank you in advance for your hard work to put our collective best foot forward! Let’s make it count!
Looking forward to a great event. Thanks for making it possible!

P.S. Don’t just bring a table with brochures, please!
Exihibitor Fee and Schedule
Base fee is $250/exhibitor. For manufacturers and distributors, we charge a fee of 0.075% of our purchases from you, YTD (we can help calculate this). This fee goes mainly to cover our catered lunch, so don’t miss out on lunch! This year we are asking for the fee to be paid cash or credit card up-front (not through vendor credits or co-op funds) – thank you!
Fee is the same regardless of size of your exhibit. Work with us to plan your location and space, and ask for as much as you can use well!
