The Southern Announces Major Changes to Annual Meeting to Benefit Buyers and Sellers! 

The Southern’s convenience wholesale members sell over $50 billion a year in our 14-state region (and surrounding states). Our 94th Annual Meeting is being held in New Orleans, June 13 – 16, 2017 (buyer events on 6/15 and 6/16) and we want you to join us! We have re-imagined this event to make it more valuable for you.

Changes include:

  • Guaranteed appointments with buyers.
  • Enhanced opportunity to buy/sell at the House of Deals event being held at the House of Blues.
  • New online show deal portal featuring pre- and post-event deal offerings to buyers.
  • Revised pricing designed to encourage families to attend the meeting with you.
  • Streamlined process to participate:
  • No dealing with a general services contractor
  • No ordering expensive carpet / electrical / labor
  • No booth to design / ship / set up / ship home
