But we are the home and garden convention for the business owners doing the work,” explained Dwyer Group President and CEO Mike Bidwell, who oversees some of the biggest names in home service and repairs. Dwyer Group brands make more than 2 million service calls a year and chances are good that if you’ve ever needed a plumber, electrician, air conditioning repair, flood restoration or more, you’ve called on one of his businesses.

“After a phenomenal year of growth and acquisitions, this Dwyer Group reunion will be one of the largest gatherings of service brand professionals and franchisees that Austin has ever seen,” said Bidwell.
The reunion theme – Topping the Charts – will celebrate the goals that have been achieved and the exciting new plans for all of the service brands in the year ahead.
