May 19-22, 2018  |  Chicago, Ill.   |  Hyatt Regency 

The National Meeting provides a venue for a vigorous exchange of ideas complete with networking, educational speakers and some of the industry's best distributors and suppliers.

    Who Should Attend?
    Senior level and national account executives from across the industry - distributors, manufacturers, allied partners, manufacturer reps - who are looking for high-level networking, trends analysis, education, and strategic planning time with trading partners.

    *NEW BOOTH SESSION FORMAT: In response to member feedback, booth space will be available during the entire conference. There will be NO 30-minute timed appointments. Set appointments for as long or as short as you like; your schedule is your own! 

    Manufacturer and Affiliate members may purchase booth space as usual and set appointments with distributors that suit your schedule. Distributors may also contact manufacturers and affiliates to schedule appointments. We encourage all manufacturer and affiliate companies to take a booth in the designated booths pace. 

    NAED would appreciate your support by attending the General Session on Sunday and the Awards Breakfast on Monday morning. Please do not set meetings during those times.
