Registration Now Open for FBMA's 2021 Main Event—FBMA's Convention and Gulf Atlantic Building Products Expo, September 8-10 at Rosen Shingle Creek Resort and Convention Center

As you are all aware, we were unable to celebrate our 100th anniversary last year due to COVID-19. With the pandemic hopefully behind us, we are celebrating our centennial this year at the convention and trade show.

This year's schedule of events will be bigger and better than ever. We expect 250 golfers at our Tom Stead Memorial Golf Tournament.

Join us for a drink and listen to some live music before dinner at our Kick-Off Reception on Wednesday night.

Dan Marino, legendary quarterback for the Miami Dolphins will be our keynote speaker at our Kick-Off Breakfast Thursday morning. We have tables for 10 for $850 available. That's a savings of $240 so bring your customers, staff, friends to this exciting breakfast.

Once again, Don Magruder, Ro-Mac has another informative and education program for our Executive Industry Panel Discussion. The topic this year will be "Supply Disruption: Short or Long-Term Problems?". He has put together an impressive panel so you don't want to miss this well attended event.

Continuing with our Centennial celebration, the Hall of Fame Luncheon allows everyone to see old friends and people from our industry. Please join us as we pay a special tribute to all our former Hall of Fame Recipients who have served our industry for years.

Centennial Bash - Come Join the Celebration! Everyone is invited. All attendees with badges are welcome. Don't miss out on the fun! The celebration starts at 5:00 p.m. and ends at 7:30 p.m.

After a full day of events, don't miss the "Bash". There will be games, heavy hors d'oeuvres, music and a wide variety of refreshments. All attendees will be given one drink ticket.

Commander Kirk Lippold, USN (Ret.) will be telling his story at the breakfast on Friday when he was the Commanding Officer of the USS Cole when it came under a suicide attack by al Qaeda in the port of Aden, Yemen on October 12, 2000. During his command, he and crew distinguished themselves by saving the American warship

We are saving the best for last. This year, we will have the Greater Orlando Builders Association not only attending the show on Friday, but they will have their booths set up and will be inviting their 600 members to attend. We are very excited to have GOBA be a part of our show.

Global Fireproof Solutions

Global Fireproof Solutions, Inc. (GFS) specializes in certified, code compliant factory and field applied fire-retardant solutions for all wood products. We’ve leveraged the benefits of our non-pressure application method that provides permanent fire protection for dimensional lumber and plywood, as well as the “hard-to-find” structural wood products such as LVLs, Glulams, LSLs, and OSB, while maintaining their structural design values.

With factories strategically located in three Southern U.S. states…Florida, Georgia, and Texas…our clients have the flexibility to ship us their wood products, in the quantities they need, while taking advantage of lead times that are 3-4 times faster than the industry standard. These factories also serve as home base for our field crews that provide on-site applications of fire-retardants for new and existing structures nationwide.
