The North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD) and North American Building Material Distribution Association (NBMDA) teamed up November 1-3 to host the 2022 Annual Convention in Chicago, Illinois.
With nearly 1,100+ distributors and suppliers at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, both associations reached their highest mark in event attendance since the pre-pandemic days. Thanks to the large number of industry pros onsite, attendees were able to make personal connections through tabletop meetings and face-to-face networking functions.
“The NAFCD Annual Convention is the best place to network and learn from your peers. It is so great to have a place where we can talk with other companies who understand and do what we do everyday,” said attendee Sara Zacharias of Tri-State Wholesale Flooring.
In addition to the entertainment and social forums offered, this year’s program featured a long list of educational sessions centered around the latest trends in leadership, distribution management, economics, sales/marketing, and technology.
The NAFCD and NBMDA plan to keep the momentum going as they push year-round opportunities for professional development and plan for the 2023 Annual Convention, which is scheduled to take place November 14-16, 2023, in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
