I attended the inaugural LBM Distribution Conference event and it was well worth my time. This was a well-organized, tightly packed conference that was run very efficiently with many of the most informed executives in our industry in attendance. There was no ‘down time’ at this event, meaning time spent waiting or the next meaningful interaction. With the right people there, the next meaningful discussion was never more than 15 minutes away. I reconnected with many longstanding industry contacts and made many new friends as well.

2014 Highlights

  • I attended the 2014 LBM Distribution Conference, and I am certainly glad I did. I found the caliber and quality of the speakers to be superior to other conferences. In addition, the format of the conference allowed me to formulate some new connections with other business owners from both inside and outside the industry. This conference was not only a productive use of my time, but also brought value to my organization.
