The 2015 NHLA Annual Convention Breaks Records

The 2015 NHLA Annual Convention & Exhibit Showcase where the global hardwood community meets to connect people, companies and the industry was a huge success. This year’s event, presented by TJT Consulting, drew 1,029 hardwood industry leaders from 14 countries and 38 states as well as the District of Columbia.  

The Convention featured dynamic keynotes from the energetic financial education advocate Chris Hogan and best-selling motivational author and TV host Daniel H. Pink. Educational programming included seven sessions which addressed the latest business opportunities both globally and domestically, forestry issues, environmental credentials of hardwoods, business operations and more. The international delegates represented the countries of Canada, China, Estonia, Germany, Great Britain, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Singapore, United Kingdom and Uruguay.
