Discussion Point – Who Will be the Talk of this Year's NFDA Convention?

There are a few companies launching new product and services this year at NFDA, but who will “steal the show”?

At this years (2011) NFDA expo Frontrunner will be showing their new Velocity platform, Aurora Casket will be debuting the new Advisor system, Trigard will be showing new advances in their Healing Tree vault, FuneralOne will be debuting a totally reloaded F1 Connect platform, and this will be the first NFDA expo where Batesville will have the Endura Vault on display.

We can’t forget that we will witness a new casket supplier rolling out to our industry at NFDA. Genesis Casket Company will be launching and show product from their new USA based casket line. Much buzz has already been created around this new company; it will be interesting to see the reaction from funeral professionals once they see the product.

So what do you think, who will be the talk of this year’s NFDA convention?
