National Funeral Exhibition 2017!
It was that time of year again last weekend. It was the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) anual summer exhibition at Stoneleigh Park Coventry. Naturally I attended and had a ball. It was a really great show with lots to see and do. It never fails to amaze me how many people attend both indistry professionals and visitors from other sectors. The convention itself is like a bog trade fair for funeral directors and death care professionals. There was this year a couple of stands promoting death positivity and alternative funeral services which are on the increase both in the UK and abroad.
The show is held every other year and enables funeral industry professiponals to come together to learn new things from one of the many free seminars given to putting new orders for mortuary supplies or even new hearses. There was also stands there offeering staffing services to funeral homes kind of like a recruitment agency for undertakers. The event was held over three days and included a family day on the Sunday. All in all this was a brilliant event and I cannot wait for the exhibition in 2019!
