Like funeral service, the city of Philadelphia has a rich history that continues to grow and evolve as times change. This makes “America’s Birthplace” the perfect location for the 2016 NFDA International Convention & Expo. Taking place October 23-26 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, the NFDA Convention will enable you to revolutionize your approach to funeral service through unparalleled opportunities for learning, networking, and discovering new products and services. If you haven't yet booked your hotel room, do so now ... rooms are filling up quickly.
You can choose from several reasonably-priced hotels within walking distance of the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The NFDA Convention website, www.nfda.org/philly2016, has complete details about each hotel; use the NFDA Housing Bureau to compare hotel rates and amenities, and make reservations. While the deadline to book hotel rooms is September 30, NFDA encourages you to book your room early because, as in years past, room blocks will sell out.

Monday, October 24 is “Think Pink” Day for breast cancer awareness. NFDA Convention attendees are invited to don attire in honor of those courageously battling breast cancer and in memory of those who have died. If you forget to pack something pink, pick up a pink badge ribbon at registration to show your support.
Be sure to stay through Wednesday evening to join friends and colleagues for a special event at the exclusive Union League of Philadelphia, the private, members-only, Five Star Platinum Club ranked #1 city club in the nation.
