Annual Convention & Tabletop Networking Forum

The most highly anticipated and effective means of directly tapping into the community of NBMDA distributors is to participate in the Annual Convention & Tabletop Business Session held each fall. As NBMDA's flagship event, the convention features countless opportunities for suppliers to efficiently interact with a large number of distributor members, all in one setting.

This is not a trade show! Instead, we develop an environment which is conducive to executive interchange between current and potential trading partners.
