The Monument Builders of North America is proud to bring our 2018 MBUniversity Conference to members and friends of the industry. This event, to be held February 23-25, will feature multiple educational workshops, a table-top display with vendors from throughout North America and unlimited networking opportunities. It is a must attend event that only happens every two years.
This year’s educational-focused event will offer something for everyone regardless of how many years of experience one may have in the industry. We will be bookending the event with presentations between three of our industry’s leading CAD program vendors and filling the between with a ton of great “stuff”. We will be kicking off the event with a software shootout followed by educational sessions on such topics as cloud computing, subscription software, and sales with a non-owner roundtable and other relevant offerings; the finest education you can receive.
Since everything is bigger in Texas, we decided to double a popular feature from previous events that has both an educational and fun option. Attendees will have the opportunity to register for one of two unique preconference bus tours. One offers a “hands-on” and educational experience with live demonstrations led by four of the industry’s top instructors. The other provides great networking opportunities while getting to visit Magnolia Marketplace from the famed HGTV show “Fixer Upper”, featuring Chip and Joanna Gaines – a series ending its fiveyear run in 2018.
Vendors will be on hand throughout the event to discuss their products and innovations designed to help you improve your business. MBNA is committed to assisting retailers and suppliers in the enhancement of their relationships and in developing new ones with key decision-makers with purchasing power.
The Association will also announce award recipients, recognize new Certified Memorialists® and install our elected leaders.
