Chicago—The North American Association of Flooring Covering Distributors (NAFCD) and the North American Building Material Distribution Association (NBMDA) will host distinguished subject matter experts at the NAFCD x NBMDA Virtual Xperience, to be held November 10-12, 2020.

These established speakers will provide attendees with a solid understanding of the latest leadership, economic, sales and distribution management trends, the groups said.

“We have an exceptional line-up of speakers that are prepared to deliver timely, relevant content specific to the distribution channel,” said Kevin Gammonley, NAFCD and NBMDA executive director. “Each session will provide attendees with the tools and knowledge they need to navigate change and evolve their businesses during unpredictable times.”
