“The 2018 E&S Industry Summit is the first of its kind. This is an interactive collaboration between three associations that will focus on improving the end user customer experience while building efficiencies in all channels.  This isn’t just for executives. We need you – your voice and your ideas – to be heard, so come prepared to participate.
The topics that will be covered and the input needed should come from many different levels of management and areas of expertise. Collaboration is the nutrition for management and leadership growth. I look forward to meeting together in March for what will be a unique experience.” – Keith Kidwell, FEDA Convention Chair



Three organizations – CFESA, FEDA and NAFEM – come together in a ground-breaking industry summit, March 21-25, 2018, at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa, Palm Desert, Calif.

Each group brings the best of their own annual meetings to this historic event.  Themed “The Future Starts Here,” participants are guaranteed keynote, panel and roundtable discussions on trends, customer issues, marketing and value-added services – key building blocks for a strong and focused customer service team.  Never before have key channel partners come together to not only take a deep dive into issues, but to provide practical solutions for continued success.

Plenty of time has been set aside for learning and networking – key components of any industry gathering.  Join us in March for a slice of hospitality at its finest. Click here to register now!




“I am extremely excited for the upcoming 2018 E&S Industry Summit, as it will be unlike any convention the industry has ever seen. In this business environment of rapid changes and channel evolution, we need collaboration and a common goal to service our end users. We also need to understand our channels and respect their unique offerings. What better way than to unite FEDA, NAFEM, and CFESA into one Industry Summit.” - Drew O’Quinn, FEDA Assistant Convention Chair
