Message (April 2021) from NAILBA CEO, Dan LaBert


By now, you've heard the news, NAILBA is pushing forward with our in-person annual meeting (#NAILBA40) and have new dates to boot! November 15 to November 17 (Monday to Wednesday) at the Gaylord Palms in Orlando, Florida. We have carefully reviewed the safety protocols, monitored the vaccine distribution and have constructed a soon to be released conference schedule that provides a recognizable, safe to attend atmosphere in a (hopefully) post-pandemic environment. 

NAILBA 40 will be a HYBRID event. What does a hybrid event mean for the 2021 #NAILBA40 Annual Meeting?

This means in addition to the November 15 to November 17 LIVE and IN-PERSON event at the Gaylord Palms in Orlando, Florida, there will be an additional three (3) days of online & on-demand content in early November and December along with a robust VIRTUAL Exhibit Hall. Please note, the content and presentations at the LIVE event will be exclusive for in-person attendees. I.E. The LIVE main stage content, LIVE exhibit hall and LIVE hallway magic (seeing friends and colleagues you have not seen in well over a year) will only be in Orlando and not re-broadcast. 

Interested in sponsoring or exhibiting? ONLINE and or IN-PERSON, we have you covered. In addition to the LIVE exhibit hall, there will be a VIRTUAL exhibit hall opening November 10 and closing December 31, 2021. Not a fan of virtual? Feel free to request the NAILBA Engage 2020-21 metrics or read this testimonial. There's no better way to decided than data-driven decision making. LIVE or VIRTUAL, make sure your company in represented! Contact Pam Sheehan for more information.

Organizing this HYBRID event is beneficial for everyone in the NAILBA community who would like to attend in-person event. As we know, there may be limitations on gathering all participants in one place. This could be due to government directives preventing large groups, or due to participants who feel hesitant to travel and gather in groups. Regardless, NAILBA is prepared to engage and safely welcome all of independent distribution. 

As an attendee, you can rest assured that as we plan for the industry’s flagship event, the safety of our attendees is our #1 top priority. Please visit this page: SAFETY Q&A as we will add updates regarding COVID-19 Response & Protocols from state, local and venue authorities to keep you safe. 

By the way, did you catch the hashtag, #NAILBA40? NAILBA will be celebrating 40 years of being the voice of independent brokerage distribution! I hope to "SEE" you in Orlando, November 15 to November 17, at the Gaylord Palms in Orlando, Florida.

Belong. Connect. Grow with NAILBA. 

Daniel LaBert
