A Review of DHI ConNextions 2018

Have you had a chance to catch your breath?  What an amazing few days in Baltimore at DHI ConNextions.  One of the best things about being in the Door and Hardware Industry is the fact it’s a relatively small group of people. Typically, at one point or another in our careers, we have either worked with or have known of one another for many years.  So, when we attend and exhibit at ConNextions it really is like a family reunion.

Hager had a lot of representation both from St. Louis headquarters, including the Hager Family, and our wonderful sales representatives.

Wednesday many team members attended the keynote presentation “Beyond Tragedy: Response and Recovery in a School Based Crisis”. The speaker was Michele Gay, a mother and former teacher, who helped founded Safe and Sound: A Sandy Hook Initiative.  It was a powerful presentation about her day on December 14, 2012, when her daughter was one of 26 people who was shot at Sandy Hook Elementary school.  Her strength and courage were felt throughout the room.  Her words reignited our mission to provide great products at a fair price with exceptional customer service to keep occupants of buildings safe and secure.

DHI ConNextions 2018 – Booth 319

Next week, several members of the Hager Family and team members will head to Baltimore for the annual DHI ConNextions show.

For the Hager team, this show is all about connecting with our customers.  We want to hear what’s new in their lives and businesses; collaborate our efforts in order to grow their sales; and, of course, showcase our new products. In the last year, we’ve released the following products:

We will also have demonstrations with our HS4 Electronic Access Control products including the newest communication platform BLUEnet. We are especially excited by BLUEnet’s ability to provide a real-time (within 4 seconds) lock communication, keeping people safer in an active shooter situation.

 

If you’d like to attend the show but haven’t purchased a pass yet, we have complimentary VIP Exhibit Hall Passes available. Just click on this link and in the Promo Code box type hagevip.

We look forward to seeing you!

National Facilities Management and Technology – NFMT Conference

We are heading to Baltimore next week for the NFMT show! We really enjoy this show as the attendees are facility management and maintenance personnel who get down and dirty with our hardware. The input and feedback we receive from this show is vital to our engineers and product managers.

This year we are bringing our brand new 8200 Series Economy Low Energy Power Operator along with our touchless actuator. Gordon Holmes, who is the Product Manager for this line, will be there to answer questions and demonstrate the product.

Construction was ongoing during our visit but the Grand Opening was held over Memorial Day weekend so they are open for business.

The ground level is mixed use with an exercise facility and comfortable seating area with a beautiful fireplace & large TV to watch the Ravens & Orioles play. The next 3 floors have one, two & three bedroom apartments. The following photos are  good examples of a mixed use multifamily building and the many levels of architectural door hardware that is used. More …

CONSTRUCT CSI 2014

We will be exhibiting at the 2014 CSI CONSTRUCT Show in Baltimore, Maryland this September 10th & 11th. This is always a fun show for us for a variety of reasons but mainly the people. We always meet new friends and it is great catching up with old pals.

Each year we try to think of something clever and useful to giveaway as “the” prize. We were struggling with this a few weeks ago when we heard that in 2015 the CSI CONSTRUCT show will be in St. Louis – our home city. Boy that got the ol’ juices flowing on possible prizes. We wanted to showcase both St. Louis & our company and with that in mind we developed the “Meet Me in St. Louis” prize package.

Stop by Booth 349 and unlock the opportunity to win the following:

 

If the key you choose unlocks the deadbolt you will be able to drop your business card into the box. At the end of the show we will draw one card and that will be the lucky winner.

We hope you will stop by, test how lucky you are and also take a look at our newest products.

See you in Baltimore!
