GET READY TO ATTEND THE 2019 LUMBER CONVENTIONS!!
 
#1 - GET READY TO SHOP & BUY!
NLA has been encouraging its exhibitors to come with show-only specials - whether it be discounted pricing, special payment terms, etc.  If you need the product or service anyway, why not plan to make a purchase at the show to take advantage of these offers?  PLUS, for each purchase you make, you will receive a drawing ticket to be used for a SPECIAL BUYER'S ONLY DRAWING at the show!
 
#2 - GET READY TO LEARN!
Each of our three conventions provides continued learning opportunities to dealers, in the form of seminars, exhibit floor "pit stop" product demonstrations, and keynote speakers.  Round out your convention experience by attending these events.  Our aim is to provide you with information you can take home and apply to your own businesses for greater success!
 
#3 - GET READY TO PLAY!
If you've attended these conventions recently, you know that they are packed with contests, games and drawings - all designed to engage you in the event and get you excited!  Take part in the sponsor game card contest, play the games at the exhibitor booths and sign up for their individual drawings, make a purchase, attend a seminar - the opportunities to win cash and prizes are endless!
 
#4 - GET READY TO EAT!
Did you know that you can eat for FREE* at our conventions?  That's right...you might have a full day of shopping, learning and playing, but you won't go hungry!  Plan to attend the membership breakfast (Expo) or membership lunch (Iowa & Nebraska) and enjoy a delicious meal, get caught up on NLA business, and listen to our amazing line-up of keynote speakers.  And don't miss the Networking Reception held on the exhibit floor at each show, complete with complimentary keg beer, soda and hors d'oeuvres!  Make sure to indicate your intention to attend these events on the registration form in advance.

*Networking receptions are complimentary to all attendees. Only MEMBERS can eat for free at the membership meals (non-member cost is $20).  Awards Dinner at Expo is not complimentary - all tickets are $30 each.
