NAFCD Conference Attendance Reaches Pre-Covid Numbers

Colorado Springs, CO, November 15, 2023-The North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD) and the North American Building Material Distribution Association kicked off their annual conference yesterday. NAFCD executive vice president Kevin Gammonley said the event is back to pre-Covid numbers, and more members pre-registered than ever before.

Suppliers are also turning out in force for the event, which formally starts today and runs through tomorrow at The Broadmoor. Thirty new suppliers signed on for this year’s conference, helping to sell out the tabletops portion.

With market activity on the downswing following the surge in demand brought on by the pandemic, those in the industry are looking to shore up their business and relationships, making this year’s conference even more of a draw, Gammonley said.

The 2020 conference was due to be held at The Broadmoor, but due to Covid, that event went virtual. Gammonley says NAFCD tries to host an event on the West Coast every couple of years, as most of the membership base is currently from the East Coast.
