Register for the 2024 Annual Conference on April 8-9 at the Westshore Grand, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Tampa in Tampa, Florida

This event is an investment in your company’s future – gaining you access to thought leaders, allowing you to collaborate on best practices, energize, and develop leadership innovations. When we gather in Tampa, we will celebrate our legacy while forging connections with tomorrow’s industry leaders.

Here are some great reasons why you’ll want to be there this spring!

  • Tampa is beautiful in April, with lots of sunshine and warm breezes. Pack your golf clubs and beach towels for some well-earned R&R.
  • Superior networking with fellow supply professionals – A lot of business gets done among members when we’re together, which is the magic of CFSA. Networking is built in to just about every aspect of the Conference!  Whether you’re looking for solutions to current challenges at the Manufacturer and Distributor Roundtables, or want to see innovation and new products and services during the Supplier Showcase, or want to enjoy the abundant social opportunities with fellow members, this conference has everything all in one place!
  • Connecting with friends and fellow funeral supply pros – In addition to four meal functions, you’ll enjoy Past Presidents Dinner/Reception, and the famous “Under 40” Party at the Westshore Grand.


Here’s How It Works:

As a Supplier Showcase participant, you have the opportunity to exhibit on Monday from 1:00 to 3:30 PM, giving ample spotlight time with the attendees for you to introduce your products and services to everyone.

Instead of the traditional “booth”, you’ll have a table (cocktail round) upon which you can display product samples, literature, give-aways, whatever you like.  (It’s just like having a booth, only smaller, and more convenient for you.)

Because there’s a 2 ½-hour allotted time frame in a festive, social setting, that gives each attendee time to come and visit with you.  Each attendee will be provided with a “passport” that you will stamp, showing evidence that the attendee visited with you at your table.  At the end of the session, everyone with a fully-stamped passport (meaning the attendee visited with every Supplier Showcase member), those fully-stamped passports will go into a hopper for a drawing.  The prize this year is a $500.00 gift card.  That’s the built-in incentive for each attendee to visit with you!



This traditional Sunday evening gathering is always a great way to kick off our networking, and re-visiting with friends we haven’t seen in a while.
