NAFCD and NBMDA Will Co-Sponsor Their Annual Convention and Tabletop Networking Forum for the 7th Consecutive Year
CHICAGO – The North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD) and the North American Building Material Distribution Association (NBMDA) have extended their partnership in 2017.

Meetings are coordinated by appointment to ensure a highly focused and productive environment.

In addition to strengthening partnerships, the event fosters networking and knowledge sharing between attendees. In 2017, the Annual Convention will host concurrent sessions on topics like the latest tech, political, economic and sales trends.

The three days of the NAFCD + NBMDA Annual Convention will also be filled with value learning through general sessions, roundtable discussions and the 2017 Distribution Management University (DMU).

Rated highly year-over-year, education sessions allow attendees to take away relevant and practical business and sales knowledge.

“More than 900 distribution professionals from NAFCD and NBMDA are expected at the 2017 Annual Convention,” said Kevin Gammonley, NAFCD and NBMDA Executive Director. “The joint event between the two organizations continues to be a solid foundation where members can rely on valuable education and insights while making meaningful business connections.”
