NELMA recently joined 175 other exhibitors at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence for the 2018 NRLA LBM Expo, held February 14-16.  The show included 18 ½ hours of exhibit time over the 3 days of the event.

The Association’s “See the Stamp, Trust the Quality” served as the backdrop for greeting this important customer audience for SPFs and Eastern White Pine lumber products.  NELMA’s Eastern White Pine Grade Swatch and Pattern Booklet continue to be popular reference items for retailers, along with the printed version of NELMA’s updated Membership Guide + Buyer’s Guide.

“This venue offers us a great opportunity to speak directly with retailers to promote our Retailer Outreach Program in addition to learning about product selling trends that may be taking place with their builder/contractor customers,” reported Jeff Easterling, NELMA’s President.  2018 marked NELMA’s 37th year of supporting the LBM Expo with exhibit space.
