The NFDA International Convention & Expo is taking place next week in Salt Lake City, and we are packing our bags and looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. The Convention offers the opportunity for inspiration in business and product innovation, networking among funeral professionals, and a chance to unwind a little bit with some fun experiences offered to those who attend.
Will we see you in Salt Lake City? Below are some of the places you’ll be able to find us, as well as some of the things we are looking forward to:
18th Annual Foundation Golf Classic
You can catch some members of our team out on the green playing in the 18th Annual Foundation Golf Classic. This will be a great way to kick off our time in Salt Lake City (not to mention the weather should be lovely!). Will we see you out there?
The welcome party for many provides the first chance of the convention to reconnect with old acquaintances while meeting new like-minded funeral professionals. We are excited to see some old friends and welcome the opportunity to meet some new faces who have come to the convention looking to learn more about the industry today and what is out there to help add value to their firm.
While we pride ourselves on our own product offering and how it can help funeral homes across the country, we will be there to learn as well. We want to learn about your funeral home, what you are looking for, and what you believe your community needs from the funeral industry.
The Keynote Speakers
With former First Lady Laura Bush and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani giving the keynote presentations on Monday and Wednesday respectively, we are looking forward to hearing about their perseverance and resolve during 9/11, how they used their roles in the public eye to bring about positive change, and their life-long dedication to public service, a calling not unlike many of those in the funeral profession.
The Expo Hall
More often than not, you’ll be able to find us in the Expo Hall. At the world’s largest funeral service expo, there will be no shortage of new, innovative products and funeral solutions. It’s inspiring to see what all of the suppliers are offering to help preserve the value of funeral service and provide families with a meaningful memorial for their loved one. We love seeing what everyone has to offer and meeting the diverse array of suppliers who have taken their time to share their business with like-minded funeral professionals.
We also look forward to meeting all of the funeral home owners who have come to the Expo looking for ways to set their firm apart. For those looking for ways to add enhanced value to their services through a customized preneed program, seminar series, or heartfelt aftercare program, we are looking forward to sharing with you how we believe we can help tailor our programs to fit your firm. In the meantime, check out our customized marketing solutions on our website.
See you next week in Salt Lake City!
