The North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD) will offer two sessions exclusively for NAFCD members at the 2011 Distributor Marketplace, Nov. 8-10 at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville.

On Wed., Nov. 9, 1:45 p.m. - 4:15 p.m., Jonathan Trivers explains "New Consumer Behavior." Jonathan will discuss insights into new consumer trends and describe how distributors and manufacturers can take advantage of these changes.

On Thurs., Nov. 10, 10:15 a.m. - 11:30 a.m., members can connect with their floor covering peers during "Back to the Basics: Peer Best Practice Roundtables." These interactive discussions will focus on how to address the issues affecting businesses today. Participants will hear what others are doing as they get back to the basics of what has helped their companies survive and thrive in good times and bad.

“We are pleased to include peer best practice roundtables and Jonathan’s session as value-adds for our members in attendance at the Distributor Marketplace,” said David Williams, NAFCD vp. “These traditional NAFCD-style breakout sessions have been brought back to allow for more meaningful member-to-member interaction. We will also have the chance to hear Jonathan Trivers, a long-recognized and respected expert, share his knowledge with us.”
