Of those in attendance were nine of Merlot’s clients, including Cultured StoneDutch Quality StoneEldorado StoneEMPAVAForzaKindred Outdoors & SurroundsNexgrillROBAM, and THOR Kitchen. With clients spanned across the three noteworthy industry shows of DCW, Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS)International Builders Show (IBS), and National Hardware Show (NHS), Merlot created ample success for the brands by executing the following before, during and following DCW:
