Annual Convention

When is the NAFDMA Convention?

Our Convention is held annually between mid-January and mid-February. Ideally the Convention takes place during the first two weeks of February; however dates are always contingent on getting the best possible value for Convention attendees.

Where is the next Convention?

The Convention location is chosen by the Board of Directors based on the policy of rotating the Convention region throughout the United States and Canada.

Who can attend the Annual Convention?

Attendance to the annual Convention is open to all Premium and Lifetime Members of NAFDMA.

Is the NAFDMA Convention open to the general public?

NAFDMA Premium Membership and paid Convention registration is required to attend the NAFDMA Convention. A NAFDMA Convention name badge will be required to participate in all Convention events.

Why does your Convention cost more than my regional Conference?

We invest in providing the best possible learning and networking atmosphere for the best possible value. NAFDMA has established a business-to-business peer exchange with a proven track record at providing the most outstanding return-on-investment. The NAFDMA Convention does not solicit grant funding and is not underwritten by any government agency.

Can I get assistance to pay for the cost of attending the Convention?

Many regional farm direct marketing associations offer grants, scholarships or other initiatives to help cover the cost of convention registration. Visit our Associations & Group Page to find a group in your area that may offer such a program.

How can my business become a Convention Sponsor?

We welcome allied industry suppliers to become a NAFDMA Sponsor and to exhibit at the Convention’s Live Business Exchange. Please contact us for details.

Advanced Learning Retreat

Who can attend the Advanced Learning Retreat (ALR)?

Registration to attend the ALR is open to all current Premium Members of NAFDMA.

Why is the ALR held during the busy season?

The ALR is scheduled during a peak time in the host farm’s season. This allows for a unique hands-on & immersive educational experience.

How is the ALR location chosen?

NAFDMA members who are willing to host an ALR can contact the Executive Director. From there, in-depth conversations are held to see if the locale and facilities make for a good fit for education and value for attendees.
