2023 Nebraska Connection Conference
2023 Nebraska Connection Conference
Wednesday, November 8, 2023 (10:00 AM - 4:00 PM) (CST)
Join us for the new 2023 Nebraska Connection Conference in Omaha, NE on Wednesday, November 8th, 2023 from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm (registration opens at 9:00 am.) This new one-day event is designed for lumber dealers and suppliers alike to learn and build connections, while also having a lot of fun.
The day will start off with educational training that will feature experts providing guidance on high-level topics to help grow your business. Next up, the annual membership meeting and lunch will cover important BLD business and conclude with an inspiring keynote speaker, Coach Bill Busch. Then, spend the afternoon interacting with industry colleagues amidst table-top displays showcasing LBM products and services. (This is not a full trade show floor – it’ll be a small selection of only 25 vendor companies!) Enjoy refreshments while connecting in a casual atmosphere and learning about LBM products/services.
There are limited spots available. Registration spots are honored on a first come, first served basis and will close when the spots are filled.
If planning to stay and attend the evening Top Golf event from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm (golf, dinner & drinks), please register for that event separately here.
Dealers and guests: $125 per person for the conference fee, which includes choice of sales or leadership seminar, membership lunch with keynote speaker, and afternoon networking reception with tabletop displays.
Suppliers: Suppliers can only attend the conference as a sponsor (pricing varies). Sponsorship includes entrance for ONE company representative into the conference (with all inclusions listed above). You may opt to send one additional person to attend the morning seminars and afternoon tabletop reception or just the afternoon tabletop reception, but due to space constraints, the 2nd company rep will not be able to join the onsite lunch.
If planning to attend the evening Top Golf event, there are additional registration/sponsorship fees that apply. You must register separately for that event.
