Why can't I bring my suppliers to SPECS?
Product manufacturers and service companies can attend SPECS only if they exhibit. This goal is to maintain an intimate, educational event that maximizes peer-networking opportunities and allows retailers time to engage in meaningful dialogue with suppliers. Retailers are encouraged to suggest to their suppliers that SPECS is a beneficial event that will help them grow their business.

Can I bring my architect or contractor to SPECS?
Your architect and contractor may attend SPECS but they will pay a higher registration rate and receive a separate registration form. They will pay a higher rate because they are able to meet new customers as a result of attending SPECS.
