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

The 2019 NBMDA Annual Convention will unite the top distributors and suppliers serving the interior building material, cabinetry and woodworking industries to network, engage, learn and enjoy their time in the Big Easy. 

Tabletop displays offer a private and comfortable setting to establish and strengthen partnerships and build networks. Trading partners are encouraged to reach out to each other ahead of time to set up appointments for business meetings, guaranteeing productivity.

NBMDA is hosting presentations from 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; and Negotiations.

"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 expand their connections over the three days of the annual convention. NBMDA will bring New Orleans flair and excitement to their networking events.

New this year, attendees will receive the latest news and updates via Twitter, by following @DistributorConv. This is an exciting way for distributors and suppliers to connect before, during and after the event.
