The summertime summit is held at the Bronze Buffalo Club in Star Valley, Wyoming. In addition to keynote addresses, guests interact with fellow industry executives and participate in outdoor activities like sporting-clay and fly-fishing competitions. The summit is an all-inclusive event, designed to meet a need for increased communication and networking in the marketplace.

“RMDBS was a great opportunity to get together with industry leaders and have time to meet each other on a much more personal note,” said attendee Brad Orwig of Peeples Industries. “It provided the platform to discuss, network, and plan for the future with many similar minds and professions. It is set apart by its intimacy and commingling the standard networking while incorporating world-class setting, speakers, and food—truly one of a kind.”

Those who attend become better informed about changes in the market while sharing insights with peers for navigating challenges today and in the future. The summit has been postponed this year due to the pandemic but will resume in 2022. Want to get involved? For more information, visit
