Over 100 RDA Members, Manufacturer Partners, and valued Guests gathered for the 2019 RDA IMPACT Spring Performance Conference in Frisco Texas at the OMNI Frisco April 1-3, 2019. This was the second consecutive meeting with every participating RDA member and Manufacturer Partner attending their three day event.

The meeting venue was adjacent to the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters in The Star, a 91 acre premier sports and entertainment district. Tuesday afternoon all attendees were treated to a private tour of the Cowboys facility.

The Mayor of Frisco, Jeff Cheney, kicked off the meeting followed by Chip Eichelberger from “Get Switched On”.  Later everyone enjoyed a welcome reception poolside at the Omni Edge. The next day, we had the one-on-one meetings with the RDA Members and Manufacturer Partners that offered special promotions and prizes throughout the event. After the private tour of the Cowboy’s facility everyone enjoyed a reception and dinner followed by Erick Kand’s comedy hypnosis show. It was truly amazing and hysterical.

We would like to thank all of our manufacturer partners who sponsored this event making it such a success.
