CHICAGO - The North American Building Material Distribution Association (NBMDA) has opened registration  for the 2019 NBMDA Annual Convention, taking place November 12-14, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans in New Orleans, LA.

NBMDA is hosting recognized subject matter experts that will provide attendees a solid understanding of the latest leadership, economic, marketing, sales and technological trends, addressing topics such as:
  • Leadership and management training
  • Team building
  • Branding
  • Adapting to digital change
  • Personnel productivity

"Last year, we had record attendance at our Annual Convention," said Kevin Gammonley, NBMDA Executive Director. "A lot of change is occurring in the distribution channel, and it's important to set aside time for education and exploration of new products and partners. The NBMDA Annual Convention provides this opportunity; we are looking forward to another successful event in 2019."

In addition to expanding their knowledge and exploring the exhibit hall, attendees will have ample time to grow their connections over the three days of the Annual Convention. NBMDA will bring New Orleans flair and excitement to their networking events. From live music to the food, attendees can look forward to a unique experience that can only be achieved in the Bayou.
