LBM STRATEGIES CONFERENCE 2016 attracted more than 140 industry pros to the Omni Hotel in Charlotte, N.C., to hear from key influencers and thought leaders. Topics ranged from sales, company culture, new technologies and management, to succession planning strategies and much, much more.
Hosted by LBM Journal, LBM Strategies Conference 2016 shared insight, advice and practical takeaways from working LBM dealers and subject matter experts who have the industry’s wellbeing at heart. The high-level event was made possible with the support of 27 sponsor companies, including Epicor (Platinum sponsor), MiTek (Gold sponsor) and BlueTarp Financial (Silver sponsor).
Beyond the learning, sharing and networking, attendees had the opportunity to honor inaugural attendees to the LBM Century Club. Created by LBM Journal and sponsored by Epicor, the club recognizes LBM dealers who have been in business for more than 100 years. In fact, the 17 membercompanies in attendance have been in business for nearly 2,000 years combined.
While space constraints prevent us from sharing every bit of wisdom delivered at the conference, what follows is a brief recap of the speakers, panelists and workshop presenters who made LBM Strategies Conference a great success.
The fast-paced day-and-a-half program featured a total of 22 individual speakers and panelists.
