AMD Convention/Exhibition Moves to Charlotte

Meetings & Events

Due to the flooding disaster and the residual effects to the city of Nashville, the Association of Millwork Distributors is moving its 46th annual convention and exhibition to Charlotte, N.C.  The event, which was scheduled to be held at the flood-damaged Gaylord Opryland Resort, is set for October 9-14.

AMD leadership acted swiftly for its members and exhibitors in its decision to relocate the venue of the convention to Charlotte, officials note. Based on a recent post-convention survey, Charlotte was a favored city to host the 2011 AMD convention, and therefore became a viable option for the relocation of this year's event, it is noted. 

The Charlotte Convention Center will house the exhibition, while the adjacent Charlotte Westin will serve as host hotel. The city is easily accessible and offers a variety of attractions within walking distance, including the new NASCAR Hall of Fame, AMD leaders note.

AMD had contracted more than three times the number of exhibitors by March this year than last year at the same time, resulting in more than 70 percent of the exhibit hall being sold, it is noted. A list of exhibitors appears below.

Convention registration and hotel information for the event is being distributed to AMD membership later this month.  More information is also available at the AMD Web site.
