PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
Welcome to Phoenix
Cynthia Carter
DPHA President
Welcome to Phoenix and the 16th
annual Decorative Plumbing &
Hardware Association Annual
Conference. Our Conference
represents the largest confluence of
decorative plumbing and hardware
professionals in North America.
There are more opportunities to
better your business, network with
peers and see firsthand what the
future might hold than at any other
time or place.
When the DPHA Program and
Showcase Committee, under the
astute leadership of co-chairs
Ryan Paul (Summit Architectural
Reoursce) and Richard Campbell
(Belmont Hardware), decided to
return to the fabulous Sheraton
Grand at Wild Horse Pass Resort,
we could hear cheers throughout
the DPHA nation. This outstanding
resort, nestled in the midst of
Arizona’s Sonoran Desert, offers a
unique venue, rich in history and
tradition that is complemented by the
modern amenities and world-class
service that has earned the property
the AAA Four Diamond honors.
Prepare for a marvelous three days
of the best education and networking
available for decorative plumbing and
hardware industry leaders.
The Annual DPHA Conference
attracts a who’s who of the industry’s
leading professionals who understand
and benefit from capitalizing on new
trends and seizing new opportunities.
We all know the disruptive impact
that technology has had on our
lives. Our world is much flatter.
Within a few clicks of a mouse, we
can connect with almost anyone,
at any time anywhere. However,
there’s something special about
meeting face-to-face. That’s the
reason why NFL stadiums are full
every Sunday. Attending the DPHA
Conference, networking with peers,
having first access to new products
and exchanging ideas offers an
psychological and emotional benefit
that you can’t get by staring at a
computer monitor.
The DPHA Conference is considered
a must-attend event because it offers
access to information that is not
available from any other source.
During the next three days, we
encourage you to build relationships
with peers from across the continent,
and be open to new technologies
and strategies that will make your
showroom more compelling and your
ability to operate it a little less taxing.
I can’t wait to hear Doug Stephens’
keynote address offering guidance
on how to deliver more compelling
customer experiences. He certainly
looks at our business through a
different lens and will provide you
with a new perspective that can help
differentiate your showroom from the
competition.
Attracting and retaining top talent
remains one of the biggest challenges
in our industry. That’s why we have
invited Richard Hedden to present
his signature program Contented
Cows Give Better Milk.
Chris Ramey returns to DPHA with
a new message that addresses the
intangibles that consumers value,
and he will share how you can use
that information to become a more
customer-centric operation.
I want to extend a special welcome
to our first time attendees who
are participating in the new Sales
Track Training Program. They
will not only benefit from the
outstanding educational programs
and networking opportunity, but will
also have the good fortune to receive
Robb Best’s guidance for improving
sales techniques. Robb is one of the
industry’s leading sales gurus and his
message is guaranteed to resonate
with everyone who attends his
workshop. You will realize quickly
that DPHA is more reminiscent of
a family than a trade organization.
DPHA members are friendly,
outgoing and most importantly
willing to share.
What’s new, what’s hot, what will
trend tomorrow? You’ll find it among
the 69 companies exhibiting at the
Product Showcase.
It has truly been an honor and a
pleasure to serve you the past two
years. I am confident that incoming
President Gary Erickson and the
entire 2018 Board of Directors will
continue to expand on the DPHA’s
tradition of excellence and
outstanding service as well as
ensuring that DPHA remains the goto source for practical education and
networking in our industry.
Enjoy your time in the Phoenix area
and at DPHA.
Cynthia Carter
President

Keynote Address: The 5 Elements of a
Remarkable Customer Experience
Presented by Doug Stephens
Friday, October 13
10 a.m. - 12 p.m. (Pipai Kave)
Brands struggle to meet and exceed the
expectations of today’s sophisticated customer. Although
it’s widely recognized that brands best positioned to thrive
in the future will compete on customer experience, there’s a
misconception about what “customer experience”
really means.
Join author and internationally renowned consumer
futurist, Doug Stephens, for an amazing tour of the
future, where every aspect of the retail experience as
we know it, will be radically transformed. Stephens will
present what constitutes a truly remarkable customer
experience and explain how DPHA members can create
one-to-one intelligent journeys to deliver connected
shopping experiences to secure their place in the hearts
and minds of tomorrow’s showroom customer.
True customer experience design means digging below
the surface within each interaction to understand the
underlying customer need. It means engineering the
exact combination of people, place, product and process
to deliver delight in every moment, whether online or in
store.
Doug Stephens is one of the world’s foremost retail
industry futurists. His intellectual work and thinking
have influenced many of the world’s best-known
retailers, agencies and brands including Walmart,
Google, Home Depot, Disney, BMW, Coca Cola and Intel.
Doug is also listed as one of the retail industry’s top
global influencers by Vend.com.
Prior to founding Retail Prophet, Doug spent more
than 20 years in the retail industry, holding senior
international roles including the leadership of one of
New York City’s most historic retail chains.
Contented Cows Give Better Milk
Presented by Richard Hadden
Friday, October 13
3:15 - 4:45p.m. (Pipai Kave)
One of the biggest challenges for DPHA
members is attracting and retaining
top talent. At this Friday afternoon workshop, you will
learn what it takes to be an employer of choice. Richard
Hadden believes DPHA members could learn a lot
from a message echoed by generations of dairy farmers:
“Contented cows give better milk.” This workshop is not
a management tome. Instead, it is testimony to the power
of treating people the right way. Hadden will present:
• Case studies and new examples from empirical
research in a number of real organizations, as
well as inspiring examples of companies that
know how to do it right, and a few that didn’t.
• Fad-free prescriptive advice informed by
Hadden’s combined four-plus decades of training
and consulting with thousands of managers and
employees, conducting employee engagement
surveys and translating the attendant learning
to management audiences in a form they can
appreciate and use.
Direct from the horse’s mouth, actually the cow’s
mouth, this workshop will teach DPHA members the
bottom-line benefits of having a focused, engaged and
capably led workforce.
Richard Hadden is a leadership and management
consultant with a focus on creating a great place to work.
He is co-author of the book Contented Cows Give Better
Milk: The Plain Truth About Employee Relations and Your
Bottom Line. Richard Hadden also writes a nationally
syndicated column entitled People and Profits.
He is the author of two groundbreaking books, The
Retail Revival: Re-Imagining Business for the New Age of
Consumerism” and Reengineering Retail: The Future of
Selling in a Post-Digital World.

Customer-Centric Company
Presented by Chris Ramey, Affluent
Insights
Saturday, October 14
2 - 4 p.m. (Komkatke DEFG)
Products featured in a decorative plumbing and
hardware showroom is the sum of your customer’s
experience with your brand. This presentation will
address the intangibles that consumers value, and how
they relate to your decorative plumbing business. Case
studies will be presented to illustrate how/why your
success depends upon becoming a customer-centric
resource. You’ll go home with a roadmap to changing
how you perceive your showroom and why what you do
is so important.
Takeaways will include:
Sales Training Track Program
Presented by Robb Best, Elkay
Saturday, October 14
1:45 -5:15 p.m. (Scorpion Room)
Since 1988 when neuroscientist Steven
Pinker published his groundbreaking
book How the Mind Works, our seminar leader Robb
Best has been obsessed with understanding the sales
and marketing brain. Throughout his career, Robb has
been a salesperson, selling on the front lines and in most
cases out selling all of his peers. Since he began studying
how the brain works when determining whether to
buy or not, Robb has shared his research, knowledge
and remarkable presentation style with thousands of
marketing and sales professionals just like you.
Robb’s presentation of Customer Experience -Make
Customers Your Most Powerful Weapon explains how to
read in between the lines and better understand and how
to leverage the 60-70% of nonverbal communication that
is transmitted by our body language. He will explain how
to read your customer’s, gestures and movements so you
know when it’s time to ask for the sale and when it’s time
to pack up the tent.
• Understanding the shift from being a product
driven company to consumer-centric company
• How to separate costs of business/entry from
investments in success
• How the 4Ps have become the 4Es
• What customer experience really is (it’s not
water at the front door!)
The Sales Training Track Program is a combination of
• The five commandments to your success in our
both classroom learning and a roundtable workshop
hypercompetitive information-overload economy where your team can learn successful sales and
showroom practices from peers across North America.
An internationally recognized speaker, business leader,
creator, humorist, contrarian and columnist, Chris
Ramey brings substance, style and innovative thoughtleadership to the stage. His clients range from the
Fortune 100 companies and business associations to
global retailers and manufacturers, as well as artisanal
luxury brands, including decorative plumbing and
hardware showrooms and manufacturers.

AD Waters Fiora Shower Base
Extremely adaptable to virtually any
space, Fiora’s shower bases can be
cut on-site to fit within an odd size
setting or to work around an existing
structural element. Fiora shower bases
are UPC certified and approved to be
distributed in the North American
market.
The Sharp washbasin collection is
a nod to geometric shapes and rich
colors. The washbasins come in a
choice of circular, square, oval and
rectangular shapes and in 10 colors
ranging from subtle and relaxed hues,
such as white, to rich and deep tones
like chocolate, anthracite and myrtle.
Glossy finishes in white and black
are available, and matte finishes are
available for all colors.
AD Waters Sharp Washbasin
The basin’s characteristics are
achieved through a highly meticulous
technological process in which the
rim and sink are designed with a
millimeter thickness. The collection
features nine models in total; each
form can be designed with or without
an integrated faucet hole.

ZeroDrain is the world’s first “popdown” drain for the tub. It turns a
formerly utilitarian product into a
design focal point and sports three
groundbreaking features:
California Faucets Zero Drain
Aesthetics: The stopper is level with
the tub’s bottom, resulting in a unique
“zero clearance” design. No more
protruding and unsightly stopper.
Functionality: Simply push down
on the stopper and the tub fills with
water. Push it again, and the stopper
returns to its zero clearance position,
and the water drains seamlessly in the
circular opening that is elegantly flush
with the bottom of the tub.
Ease of Use: ZeroDrain for the tub is
virtually impossible to clog. To clean,
pull up on the stopper and the drain
comes out swiftly. No screwing or
dismantling is required and there are
no blocking components underneath
that are magnets for hair and debris.
Simply rinse off the stopper and drop
it back in. It’s as quick and simple as
possible.

and Sospiro in their new Sleek-Stone®
material in a variety of silhouettes
including round, oval, rectilinear
and square. GRAFF’s array of sink
installations include free-standing,
countertop, drop-in and wallmounted.
GRAFF Finezza Collection
The Finezza Collection pays homage
to the Art Deco movement, which is
underscored by the collection’s curved
lines and symmetrical ornamentation.
Finezza’s layered structure and 18K
gold finish option further elucidate
the fixtures’ inspiration. The
collection blends grace and elegance,
enriched by architectural, refined
details and clean, essential lines.
Finezza UNO faucets incorporate
three distinct and defining beauty
rings fitted to the base of the products,
giving dimension to each fixture and
emphasizing the collection’s inherent
artistry.
The Finezza DUE faucet collection is
characterized by a soft, elegant line
connecting the faucet’s body to the
base without interruption. In both
UNO and DUE designs, the faucet’s
main body has been developed
in a shape that relies on a unique

horizontal section, wider at the base
and at the top, slimmer in the middle.
The spout recalls the design of the
body, starting with a trapezoidal
section that expands slightly at the
end to accommodate the water-saving
aerator.
The two-part collection provides two
stunning opportunities for those who
prefer designs based upon geometric
forms - one offering focused on
embellishment and one on a classic,
minimalistic style. Complementing the
faucets are the Finezza Freestanding
Bathtub and Drop-in or Countertop
Sink, each featuring art deco-inspired
trapezoidal shapes and crafted from
GRAFF’s exclusive Sleek-Stone®
material.
GRAFF Finezza DUE Single Pull Faucet
The contemporary Tephi Freestanding
Bathtub, a sculptural soaking tub,
employs a serene shape and matte and
gloss white finishes. Complementing
the bathtub is the Tephi Freestanding
Pedestal Sink. Characterized by a
unique pillar shape, the sink and
bathtub are distinguished by GRAFF’s
exclusive Sleek-Stone® material, a
durable surface that embodies the
tactile qualities of natural stone and
is easy to maintain. Tephi’s elegant
design is inspired to resemble the bow
of a traditional sailboat. The crisply
cut angles flow seamlessly into the
gently curving ends, conveying the
sea-faring inspiration, which is further
emphasized by the symmetrical shape.
Streamlined in form, yet sophisticated
in concept, Tephi is a timeless design
that can be paired with an endless
number of accessories and fittings,
including GRAFF’s elegant Sade
collection.

points, both the single-hole and bridge
designs separate hot and cold water at
their origin, providing an innovative
method for advanced sanitation.
GRAFF Tephi Freestanding Bathtub
The Sospiro Collection offers a
contemporary twist on a traditional
style. Balancing the classic
silhouette of a bridge faucet with
sleek, curvilinear lines, the Sospiro
collection harmonizes with popular
elements in modern kitchens and
bars. Minimalistic in theory, from
the clean, continuous spout to the
singular, slender circular base ring,
the faucet also qualifies as maximalist
with several luxurious finish options
available, including polished chrome,
brushed nickel, polished nickel and
olive bronze™.
With a bridge and single-hole design,
Sospiro can be specified for both
kitchen and bar settings. The Sospiro
bar fixture’s compact footprint
delivers optimum water flow and
offers a minimalistic style in scale with
petite bar sinks.

The new URBAN vanity collection
takes design flexibility to new heights.
The collection features consoles with

which have 10 porcelain tile options

The wall-hung vanities are a modular

unit configuration to spec. They have
the same countertop options as the
floor-standing console but the wallhung vanity also includes a 1/2” thick
porcelain top option. All wood finishes
are the same, and there are also 45
matte or glossy colors to pick from.
Sizes will range from 27-1/2” to 86”
single or double sinks. Coordinating
LED mirror wall cabinets with
exposed or closed shelving are also

The Château freestanding bathtub
was inspired by the Pittock Mansion
in Portland, Oregon. This mansion,
built in 1914, was the private residence
of the famous newspaper publisher,
Henry Pittock and his wife Georgiana.
The house, much like the tub, merges
the grandiosity of French architecture
with the softness of a country house.
The Château Freestanding Tub
offers straight lines and graceful
curves to imbue a sense of old world
sophistication. Every element of this
tub was carefully considered, from
the prominent pedestal and ledge
to its elegant bateau shape. With
unforgettable details that evoke
a European-inspired façade, the
Château proves that classic design and
quality construction can withstand

Named for Piazza del Campo in
Sienna, Italy, the ROHL Italian Bath
Campo Bath series celebrates the
famous systems of conduits that bring
water to the area. In the 14th century,
miles of tunnels and aqueducts
were built, delivering water to the
famous Font Gaia – or Fountain of
the World. The Campo handle and
escutcheon design emulate the valve/
stem combination used in the building
of industrial conduit systems. The
faucets are authentically crafted in
Piemonte, Italy.
Pentair Everpure Filtration System
Unlike solid carbon block filtration
systems, Pentair Everpure’s H-300NXT and EF-Series product lines
feature an accordion-folded filter
membrane covered with Micro-Pure,
a very fine activated carbon coating
on both sides of the membrane. This
combination results in incredibly
reliable performance.
ROHL Campo Bath Faucet
The exclusive pre-coat filtration
removes off-tastes, odors and particles
as small as 0.5 micron in size,
including lead and chemicals, making
drinking water as clean as possible.
ROHL San Giovoni
Named for Villa San Giovanni, the
main access to Southern Italy, the
ROHL Italian Bath San Giovanni
series epitomizes the industriousness
of this region. The area was known in
the mid nineteenth century as “little
Manchester” (England) for its large
number of fabric spinning mills and
industrial pipe factories. The lines
of this collection are derived from
the industrial lineage of the pipe
manufacturing mills. The escutcheons
carry a nuts-and-bolts like detail
reminiscent of mechanical fittings
from the late 1800s.
