2023 Annual Conference 
Held May 2-4, the annual event brought together thought leaders and decision makers of independently owned and operated funeral homes and suppliers from across the globe. Focusing on industry dynamics, trending topics, innovation, and professional development, the knowledge and resources gained from this event directly benefit funeral homes looking to grow and be more successful. There was also plenty of time to network with peers and potential customers as well as meet new colleagues at this event.
