In the midst of a year filled with uncertainty and change, The National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) brought the profession together for three days of inspiration, reflection, education, and professional and personal growth during the 2020 Virtual International Convention & Expo. Held October 20-22, NFDA’s first-ever Virtual Convention drew 1,806 total attendees (1,254 attendees and 552 exhibitor representatives). A total of 81 international attendees, representing 15 countries and territories, participated in the event. The Expo Hall featured 128 digital booths.
“While we all wish we would have been able to gather in person, I am so glad I had the opportunity to reconnect with colleagues and friends during the biggest and best virtual gathering in the funeral profession,” said NFDA President R. Bryant Hightower Jr., CFSP. “I always take so much away from the interactions I have with colleagues during the NFDA Convention and this year’s event was no exception. From conversations taking place during our keynote events and education sessions to the ideas exchanged in break out lounges, I learned so much from my fellow funeral directors that will help me continue to serve families at the highest level.”
