    • Distributor members will be assigned a booth only if the sign-up form is submitted to NAED by January 3.
    • Distributors are encouraged to accept at least two appointments with smaller suppliers or suppliers they are not currently doing business with, if approached.
    • To maximize the benefits, the individual requesting the appointment should advise the other participants of the meeting's purpose and come prepared.
