CHICAGO — Once again, the North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD) and North American Building Material Distribution Association (NBMDA) are teaming up to provide industry pros with a can't-miss experience. The 2022 NAFCD + NBMDA Annual Convention is officially scheduled to take place November 1-3 in Chicago, Illinois.
The 2022 NAFCD + NBMDA Annual Convention will join the top distributors and suppliers for three days of professional development, networking and much-needed fun. Throughout the event, attendees will have the opportunity to learn from seasoned professionals about the latest leadership, distribution management, economic, sales/marketing and technological trends.
"After a year-long hiatus, we were able to bring the community together this past fall for a successful, in-person event. This November, we plan to keep that momentum going and provide our members with another chance to build relationships, address industry challenges and identify growth opportunities in the marketplace," said Kevin Gammonley, Executive Vice President of NAFCD and NBMDA.
This year's event is expected to attract over 1,000 distribution professionals. Despite this large number, attendees will still have countless opportunities to make one-on-one connections through tabletop meetings.
"Tabletop meetings give distributors the chance to connect with current and potentially-new suppliers in a setting that's both productive and time efficient. Our tabletop booths have become a highly sought-after phenomenon and tend to sell out fast. That said, member and non-member suppliers are encouraged to secure their spots now," said Gammonley.
Registration for the 2022 convention will open in July. In the meantime, visit www.distributorconvention.org, or contact the NAFCD or NBMDA Headquarters for further information.
