SAVE THE DATE!! NCFA DISTRIBUTOR SOCIAL JULY 8, 2021 Holiday Inn – Strongsville, OH This last year has brought uncertainty for so many!!! With the future finally taking a positive turn in the Covid battle, we are looking forward to bringing back some of our events. We have missed all of our valued members and industry friends, and appreciate your continued support!! Our first event to kick off this unusual year, will be our Distributor Social. There are some key differ-ences to note regarding this event. We typically hold this event mid May, but we just weren’t confi-dent hosting quite so soon, which is why we pushed it out until July 8th. In addition, the other major change is the location. We will be hosting this year’s event at the Holiday Inn in Strongsville, OH. This will work out well, as Solution Industries has also offered to host a tour and lunch earlier in the day for Distributor Social attendees, which is in close proximity to the new venue. It’s hard to imagine with this being our 12th year hosting this event that it needs any explanation at all, but just in case, here it goes. We imagined being able to recreate a networking event similar to what was once held at the Hyatt Hotel after the old Columbus Fastener Show many, many years ago. It turned out, it was exactly what our industry was missing and wanted. We recognized from the start it was important to keep it simple, so the focus for attendees could be on the social and net-working aspect. There are no booths to drag in and set-up and you are not stuck “working” behind a table top all evening. The Distributor Social is exactly what it is…..a networking event with many top distributors and suppliers in our industry all gathered in one room. You are free to roam the entire evening talking to customers, potential customers, vendors, and industry friends. The NCFA knows very well that this event would not be possible without the sponsorship and support from our SUPPLIER COMPANIES. This allows DISTRIBUTORS TO ATTEND FOR FREE. We thank you suppliers for your continued support year after year to make this event a continued success! This event is OPEN TO ALL OF OUR INDUSTRY FRIENDS, NON-MEMBERS INCLUDED! We feel so strongly about the networking benefits you can get out of this event, we did not want to limit to our membership alone. To show our thanks to our loyal supplier members, they do receive a dis-counted price for sponsoring this event. We are hopeful if you are not a member of the NCFA, once you attend this event or one of our many networking events, you will see why so many others have joined and have been with us for so many years.
