The North American Association of Flooring Covering Distributors and the North American Building Material Distribution Association announced that its 2020 annual convention is transitioning to a fully-virtual event.
“The 2020 NAFCD + NBMDA Annual Convention was intended to take place this November in Colorado Springs and is transitioning to virtual due to health and safety concerns caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” the trade groups said in a statement.
“The NAFCD x NBMDA Virtual Xperience, taking place November 10-12, will offer a full line-up of live education sessions coupled with multiple networking opportunities, including a virtual exhibit hall. The traditional tabletop exhibit session will be replicated to facilitate online connections between distributor executives and their supplier partners. The focus will remain to deepen trading partnerships along with an opportunity for distributors to efficiently connect with firms looking to build a distribution network in the U.S. and Canada.”
Registration will open mid-August. Visit www.distributorconvention.org for more information.
