The 2017 CDBX
was held at
The Westin Michigan Avenue
Chicago, IL
September 11-14, 2017


The 2017 Convenience Distribution Business Exchange (CDBX) brought together over 110 convenience product wholesale distribution companies and suppliers for three days of top-to-top, one-on-one business exchange meetings. More than 1,500 individual meetings were held, providing the opportunity for distributors to take their businesses to the next level working hand in hand with their trading partners.

CDBX is the most productive meeting CDA members attend each year. In just 2 1/2 days, CDA member distributors get up to 30 TOP-TO-TOP meetings per team with key trading partners all in one great venue. It's not just one-on-one meetings at CDBX. While at CDBX, attendees enjoy lavish breakfasts, lunches and receptions each day and enjoy plenty of networking time with all in attendance. CDBX registration is open and available to any CDA member distributor, and by invitation to CDA member manufacturers and suppliers. For details on joining CDA and becoming a part of CDBX, please contact Joel Brown at (703) 208-1649.

We look forward to seeing all back next year Sept. 24 - 27, 2018 in Chicago for CDBX 2018.
