CHICAGO — Registration for the 2022 NAFCD + NBMDA Annual Convention is officially open. Building upon the success of 2021’s in-person conference, NAFCD and NBMDA are excited to bring the distribution community together again in Chicago, Illinois, from November 1–3.
The 2022 NAFCD + NBMDA Annual Convention will unite the top distributors and suppliers for three days of professional development and relationship-building. During the event, attendees will also have the opportunity to learn from seasoned experts about the latest trends in leadership, distribution management, corporate culture, economics, sales/marketing and workforce development through a stimulating menu of educational sessions.
Currently, suppliers are invited to reserve a tabletop booth. Tabletops provide an efficient and comfortable setting to establish new relationships and deepen existing trading partnerships. To make sure maximum levels of productivity are met, potential partners are encouraged to reach out to each other ahead of time to set up appointments for business meetings.
"Outside of tabletop meetings, there will be a host of entertainment and social functions offered to provide a casual and enjoyable forum for developing channel connections," said Kevin Gammonley, Executive Vice President of NAFCD and NBMDA. "The distribution channel is continuously changing. That said, it is crucial for members of the distribution community to come together as one to navigate challenges, exchange ideas and share best practices."
Aside from making meaningful connections and expanding their knowledge, attendees are encouraged to explore all that the exciting city of Chicago has to offer. Over the years, Chicago has become an attendee-favorite meeting spot as it is easily accessible and provides an exciting environment for distribution executives to unite.
