Thanks to all who attended the Convenience Distribution Marketplace 2018. It was a great success, and really shined in its celebration of the convenience products wholesale distribution industry. Marketplace is unique in offering distributor-focused education, extensive networking and connecting suppliers with distributors on a one-day Marketplace floor represented by the leading trading partners and suppliers of and to convenience products wholesale distributors. Marketplace is the only national event of its type, exclusively for the convenience distribution industry. We look forward to having you with us next year in San Antonio, TX, Feb. 11-13, 2019.

Connect With Top Trading Partners
At Marketplace, distributor teams 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 Welcome Networking Event & Reception in the afternoon, along with breakfasts and lunch served each day for attendees and exhibitors alike.

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.

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.
