Chicago—For the seventh consecutive year the North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD) and North American Building Material Distribution Association (NBMDA) brought together distribution professionals throughout the leading floor covering, specialty building material, cabinetry and woodworking industries to network, engage, learn and grow their businesses. The 2016 event held at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, Nov. 1-3, was a record year with 940 attendees.
At the convention, attendees participated in a number of education sessions and had the opportunity to participate in complementary one-on-one fifteen minute consultations. NAFCD and NBMDA also developed a matching program for first-time exhibitors. New to the convention were panel discussions, offering peers insights at an enriched level with questions lead by the panel moderator as well as an open Q&A.
“Enhancements to this year’s event not only improved the attendee experience, education and networking, but it contributed to the overall success of the event,” said Kevin Gammonley, NAFCD and NBMDA, executive vice president. “We received positive feedback and, as always, are excited to help attendees expand their network and grow their business here at the Annual Convention.”
The 2017 NAFCD + NBMDA Annual Convention event will take place Nov. 14-16, at The Broadmoor, in Colorado Spring, Colo.
