CHICAGO – The North American Building Material Distribution Association (NBMDA) has announced that the 2021 NBMDA Annual Convention will take place November 2-4, 2021, in-person at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas.

Following its virtual event in the fall of 2020, the association is looking forward to providing a forum for the industry’s wholesale distributors and partner suppliers to reconnect at a live event this fall.

Distributors and suppliers serving the interior building material, cabinetry and woodworking markets will come together at the 2021 NBMDA Annual Convention to educate themselves on trends impacting the supply chain, share best practices, deepen relationships with current suppliers and open dialogue with potential new sources of supply. 

“Our members are really looking forward to meeting face to face with their peers and trading partners,” said Kevin Gammonley, NBMDA’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 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. 

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. See www.distributorconvention.org.
