Early bird registration for the 2011 NAFCD/NBMDA Distributor Marketplace runs through Sept. 16. According to show organizers, a multiple discount rate is available so employee teams can save $200 a person after the first two team members pay full price.

The Distributor Marketplace, at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, runs Nov. 8-10, and will include some of the latest products and services from manufacturers and service providers in the floor covering industry. The show will also offer networking and educational opportunities including the new Distribution Management University.

Hotel reservations should be made directly with the Gaylord Opryland Hotel by Oct. 11 to guarantee special conference room rates. Visit www.distributormarketplace.org to register, or call (888) 777-6779 and reference the Distributor Marketplace when making reservations to receive the discounted rate.
