The Home Depot Store Managers Meeting

What began in 2004 as the 25th Anniversary Celebration has grown into The Home Depot’s premier annual event: The Home Depot Store Managers Meeting. For the past sixteen years, Hartmann Studios has partnered with The Home Depot to deliver an annual meeting that has become a destination event for suppliers and employees alike.

For The Home Depot Store Managers Meeting, Hartmann Studios was tasked with concepting, designing, developing, managing and executing an annual three day leadership event to inspire, engage and inform 3,200+ executives from across North America.

  • We continuously design engaging networking events to connect attendees and supplier partners at Mandalay Bay and other hosted venues.
