NBMDA and NAFCD Invite Distributors to Colorado Springs

 Once again, the North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD) and North American Building Material Distribution Association (NBMDA) are teaming up to provide distribution executives with a can’t-miss experience. The 2023 NAFCD + NBMDA Annual Convention is officially scheduled to take place November 14-16 in Colorado Springs.

The 2023 NAFCD + NBMDA Annual Convention will unite the top distributors and suppliers for three days of professional development, networking and best practice sharing. Throughout the event, attendees will have the opportunity to learn from seasoned experts about the latest leadership, distribution management, economic, sales/marketing and technological trends.

“We are excited to provide our members another chance to build relationships, address industry challenges and identify opportunities for growth 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. Distributor attendees will have countless opportunities to make one-on-one connections with leading manufacturers through tabletop meetings.

“Tabletop meetings give distributors an opportunity to meet current and potentially-new suppliers in an intimate and informal setting. This has become a popular event model, so booths tend to sell out fast; member and non-member suppliers are encouraged to secure their spaces as soon as possible,” said Gammonley.

Registration for the 2023 convention will open in early July. In the meantime, visit www.distributorconvention.org, or contact the NAFCD or NBMDA Headquarters for further information.
