NAHFA Launches Regional Event Program

nahfa-logoROSEVILLE, Calif.-The North American Home Furnishings Association (NAHFA) is launching a regional event program to provide members and retailers across the country with local networking and educational opportunities. While the association offers seminars and opportunities for interaction at its market Retailer Resource Centers and Home Furnishings Networking Conference throughout the year, these regional events will provide other convenient ways for members to build relationships, the group said.

"Bringing members together is important," said Mary Frye, NAHFA's executive vice president and regional events liaison. "Whenever you get a group of retailers together, whether it's at market or a conference, magic happens. They talk to one another about what's important to them; their successes and their struggles. I'm told they can leave an event with a money saving idea. There's value in associating so we're making it easier for them to do just that with regional events."

Retailers can view and register for upcoming events on the Association's website, www.nahfa.org, or subscribe to the calendar via their favorite calendar program (iCalendar, Outlook, etc.). Events are also listed in the Networking News column in each issue of RetailerNOW.

This month retailers are invited to the Dallas Regional Lunch & Learn, March 27, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., at the Dallas Market Center, Seasons Gallery. A $20 donation to the Dallas Furniture Bank gives attendees access to Paul Thompson's presentation, Increase Your Merchandising Results. Next month, Denver retailers are invited to Coors Field for the Colorado Rockies vs. Phillies game, April 18, at 6:40 p.m.

For registration and details on these and future events, visit nahfa.org or call 800-422-3778.

    Many expected 2016 would be a banner year, but the political and economic climate softened consumer confidence. It was also a year consumers spent more lavishly on home remodeling rather than decorating.
