Post-Frame Construction is a growing segment of the construction market. The National Frame Building Association, which represents the post-frame building industry, is organizing the first coordinated marketing effort specifically designed to increase awareness and acceptance of post-frame building methods for a wide variety of buildings.
NFBA is organizing the Post-Frame Industry Summit to discuss the association’s plans to grow NFBA members’ businesses, and consequently, the entire post-frame market. The conference, co-sponsored by NFBA, Frame Building News and Rural Builder magazines, will be held April 23-24 in Kansas City, Mo.
The theme is “Get on Board! Maximize your Company’s Growth!”
Industry experts will discuss market research, economic forecasts and NFBA’s actions to grow the post-frame market by 5 percent every year. To reach this aggressive goal, NFBA seeks to empower members to grow their own businesses and is conducting national marketing efforts to educate customers, design professionals and others.
Builders, suppliers, material dealers, architects, engineers and other post-frame industry professionals are invited to attend the Industry Summit. Come to the Industry Summit to learn what our association is doing, and how you will benefit from our marketing efforts. See the results of NFBA’s market research, and find out where the industry will grow — and why.
The schedule is planned so that you need spend only one night away. Most people will be able to fly into Kansas City International Airport (MCI) on Wednesday before the Summit begins at 1 p.m. On Wednesday night, we’ll host a reception for attendees. We will adjourn at noon on Thursday, so you’ll have plenty of time to make it back home.
The Hotel Inter-Continental is in the heart of Kansas City’s historic district, The Country Club Plaza. In your spare time, you will want to stroll around the unique buildings at The Plaza and enjoy a drink, meal or live entertainment.
Plan to participate in the 2008 NFBA Post-Frame Industry Summit. Bring more than one individual from your company if you can. Registration prices increase after April 10.
