To be one of the 1,000 judges, contact Shane Thomas, DECA’s director of competitive events, at 703-860-5000, ext. 222, or via email at shane_thomas@deca.org. The deadline for applications is March 23.

The conference, which will feature a presentation by business icon George Zimmer, founder and chairman of Men’s Wearhouse, is expected to pump more than $14 million into the Salt Lake City-area economy, using more than 1 million square feet of convention center space, 30,000 hotel room nights, 10,000 tickets to area attractions, 250,000 meals served and numerous retail purchases.
