IN HONOR OF BOB DALLMEYER

Bob Dallmeyer was President of RD International, a global exhibition management company, for 30 years. Throughout his 51-year career in the trade show industry, he organized some of the most prestigious trade exhibitions in the world and became a beloved mentor and icon.

Bob was a poet, teacher, speaker, world traveler, radio show host, published author, activist, mentor, and friend; a true inspiration to all who came in contact with him. The Bob Dallmeyer Education Fund was created as a memorial to Bob and to furthering opportunities for education and mentoring, without regard to geographical boundaries.
