FBMA 2020 Main Event and Gulf Atlantic Building Products Expo Is On

To Our Loyal Exhibitors.

As they say “The show must go on”. After careful consideration, FBMA has agreed to move forward with this year’s convention and trade show, September 16 -18 at Rosen Shingle Creek Resort and Convention Center in Orlando. NO PARKING PROBLEMS THIS YEAR!

The event schedule will remain the same with the exception of the Friday “close” of the show that has been moved to 4:00 p.m.

We are proud to announce that this year and hopefully many years to come, the Greater Orlando Builders Association (GOBA) will be part of our trade show on Friday. GOBA will have 50 of their own tabletop exhibits on our show floor. Historically, GOBA brings in over 400 in attendance to their yearly event. We expect Friday’s show attendance to be “off the charts”. We have joined forces with GOBA to make our show even bigger and better!

Don’t forget this year’s Kick-Off Breakfast with keynote speaker, Dan Marino. We are excited to have Dan attend our show and speak at our breakfast. You don’t want to miss it!

We still have exhibit space available. Contact Betty if you’re interested in being a part of this year’s trade show.

We are celebrating our 100th year anniversary this year. Our event schedule is jam-packed with things to do and people to see. Don’t miss this opportunity to network with friends and business partners.

There will be much more information coming your way in the next few weeks. “Stay Tuned”, watch for emails, show brochure and please, register early.

Convention Chairman
