What is the difference between the NFRA Executive Conference and the NFRA Convention?

The NFRA Executive Conference is held each April, and is a smaller networking event that features industry speakers presenting on the latest industry trends, insights, challenges and opportunities for growth. The NFRA Convention is held each October, and focuses on one-on-one customer business meetings. Rather than a busy, noisy trade-show floor, your time is spent in productive individual meetings. The real value of this Convention is that all the major companies in the industry – retailers, manufacturers, sales agents, logistics providers, suppliers – are all in one place. So it’s possible to hold dozens of meetings in just a few days.
