The 2021 NAFCD + NBMDA Annual Convention Strives to Cultivate Collaboration
CHICAGO The 2021 NAFCD + NBMDA Annual Convention, taking place November 2-4 in Dallas, Texas, is famed as a can't-miss event for many distribution executives. Throughout the three days, attendees will be presented with hands-on learning experiences, professional development tools and countless opportunities to collaborate with other distribution leaders.

The 2021 convention is expected to attract over 800 distribution professionals. In an effort to foster engagement among attendees, a wide range of functions designed to connect current and potential trading partners are planned.

Outside of these networking forums, attendees are encouraged to establish and strengthen their partner relationships through tabletop meetings. NAFCD and NBMDA anticipate that nearly 180 suppliers will host a tabletop exhibit this November. To make sure maximum levels of productivity are met, trading partners reach out to each other ahead of time to set up appointments for business meetings.

"Tablebletop meetings give distributors the chance to connect with current suppliers in a comfortable setting. Additionally, the tabletop format is a highly effective means for suppliers looking for new distributors to meet with a large number of distributor decision makers at one event. Due to this, our tabletop booths are highly sought after and tend to sell out fast," said Scott Narug, NAFCD's and NBMDA's Director of Sales.
