Roseville, CA, October 15, 1014 — The North American Home Furnishings Association (NAHFA) will host its third annual all-industry networking conference, May 17-19, 2015 at the Disney Coronado Springs Resort, Orlando, FL.
“The 2014 conference had a record retailer attendance of 120 stores,” said Sharron Bradley, NAHFA’s CEO. “The conference committee’s goal is to double that store attendance in Orlando.”
NAHFA is partnering with the Disney Institute for a segment of the conference. The Disney Institute is recognized worldwide for its professional development and external training. NAHFA 2015 conference attendees will enjoy access to portions of this award-winning training plus a full conference agenda. “Being able to tap into the Disney Institute is a key advantage of this year’s conference, stated Andrew Tepperman, Tepperman’s, Windsor, ON, Canada. “ I’ve tried over the years to participate in the Institute but found it too cost prohibitive on my own. Now I get the Institute and so much more, it’s an incredible value.”
“This will mark my 40th year going to conference,” said Dave Harkness, Harkness Furniture, Tacoma, WA. “NAHFA has stepped up the speakers and content and I find it even more compelling. The Orlando conference will be the best of all worlds as we’ll be exposed to one of the finest cultures in any industry—Disney. Finding out what they do and how they accomplish superb customer experiences is something I really want to learn and incorporate into my business.”
The HFNC will include educational sessions, key speakers, facilitated networking, and a product showcase. Room rates at the Coronado Springs are $164 per night/double occupancy with extended stay options available at the group rate. Visit theHFNC.com for more details and registration.
