The Convenience Distribution Marketplace is the only national conference and trade show exclusively for the wholesale distributors of convenience products in the United States. Combining distributor-focused education and seminars, fantastic networking opportunities and a Marketplace floor filled with the top trading partners and suppliers of distributors, Marketplace is truly unique and a ‘must-attend’ event for you and your team.
We look forward to seeing you in San Antonio!
Connect With Top Trading Partners
At Marketplace, distributors connect with the leading manufacturers and suppliers in the industry. Unlike larger events, Marketplace is focused on attracting just the top trading partners to CDA member distributors.
Marketplace features an abundance of networking, where attendees not only have a chance for some fun, but also can strengthen their connection to and build relationships with trading partners. Monday features the "Taste of Texas" party, along with an opening keynote from Herb Meyers, former Reagan Administration intelligence official. Breakfasts, lunches and breaks provide additional networking time, and are included for attendees and exhibitors alike.
CDA Awards Reception & Dinner
CDA’s Annual Hall of Fame award will be presented at a fantastic celebration of the industry at the CDA Awards Reception & Dinner on Tuesday night.
A full line-up of targeted distributor-focused education sessions, along with two fantastic keynote speakers, roundtable sessions and the Women’s Leadership Workshop.
One-Day Marketplace Floor of Top Trading Partners
A full day of Marketplace floor made up of the top manufacturers and suppliers connects distributor attendees with the companies critical to their success. Our one-day floor format also enables attendees to get their business done quickly. The Marketplace floor includes the CDA Lounge with refreshments all day, along with both complimentary breakfast and lunch.
