The North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD) announced that the 2021 NAFCD Annual Convention will take place November 2-4, 2021, in-person at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas.
“Our members are really looking forward to meeting face to face with their peers and trading partners,” said Kevin Gammonley, NAFCD’s Executive Vice President. “More so than in a normal year, there is pent-up demand for interpersonal connection and a live forum to address challenges and opportunities in the distribution channel.”
The NAFCD Annual Convention is a gathering for executives from distributorships to stay informed about topics impacting the channel while also hearing about trends impacting different parts of North America. Additionally, the annual event provides a forum for distributor and manufacturer executives to connect to assess their partnership while also confirming growth plans for the coming year.
“Planning has begun for this fall’s event which is expected to be well attended,” shared Gammonley. “2021 is providing plenty of new disruptions in the supply chain and thus a new set of challenges for distributors. This leads our members to want to connect and learn from each other as well as from professional presenters featured on this year’s program, who will represent some of the sharpest minds in distribution management strategy, economics, sales and marketing.”
Private, sit-down meetings between distributors and suppliers — pre-scheduled for maximum productivity — will once again be a core component of this year’s event. Member and non-members suppliers are currently welcome to reserve their tabletop booths for this fall. Extensive measures will be in place to ensure the safety and well-being of all attendees.
Registration will open in July. For more information, visit www.distributorconvention.org or contact NAFCD Headquarters at 312.321.6836.
