Batesville, the leading provider of comprehensive solutions to the death care industry, will showcase a selection of innovative products, merchandising and technology solutions to help funeral directors simplify their business while meeting the needs of today’s consumers, at the 79th annual National Funeral Directors & Morticians Association (NFDMA) convention, August 2-3, 2016 in Richmond, VA.

“Today’s funeral directors are facing challenges not experienced by prior generations,” said Troy Turner, chief marketing and information officer for Batesville. “More than ever, they need a partner who understands their challenges and is committed to walking together with them to help solve the problems they face – inside and outside the funeral home. Batesville can lead them on that journey.”

Batesville experts will demonstrate a variety of innovative offerings that support the funeral director’s walk with families, including new oversize caskets that are essential for today’s larger consumers, cremation products with unique personalization elements, merchandising systems to help families make more informed decisions, and technology that makes it easier for funeral homes to manage and market their business.

With obesity of North American adults accelerating at an increasing rate, there is a greater need for oversize products. The NewPointe® oversize line of caskets provides a high quality, affordable solution that families value and that supports the profitability of the funeral home. Batesville is introducing three new additions in its booth, a Black (32”), Silver (32”) and Orchid (28”). These products include decorative theme kits at no additional charge, allowing families to add a personal touch to the casket.

While visiting the Batesville booth, funeral professionals can register to win one of Batesville’s new oversize caskets. Drawings will be held on Wednesday, August 3 at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. Winners must be present at the time of the drawing. The contest is not open to exhibitors and non-funeral home personnel.
