Break-out import casket company Sich Casket has announced that they will be giving away a free casket during the 2016 NFDA Convention. Sich CEO Sirius Chan says that all funeral home owners and employees attending the convention are eligible to win. There is no entry fee.

The prize casket is their “Heritage” model constructed of solid Paulownia hardwood featuring an elegant Satin Mission Brown finish with Khaki Cross Weave interior. Mr. Chan says that the prize includes free shipping to the winner’s location.

“We are doing everything possible to create buzz about Sich Casket at the Convention,” said Mr. Chan. “There will be a lot of fun surprises and the free casket giveaway is part of that. The NFDA Convention is our opportunity to show that we just don’t believe in doing business as usual.”

Attendees merely have to drop off their business cards in a miniature casket at Sich booth 2739. The name of the funeral home must appear on the card. The drawing will be held at the booth at 4:45 pm EDT, about 15 minutes before the close of the exhibit hall that day.

Mr. Chan says Sich will be showcasing six of their caskets at their booth as well as allowing visitors the opportunity to speak with him along with a number of Sich distributors.
