The 2016 NHLA Convention & Exhibit Showcase in DC


NHLA is proud to announce TJT Consulting as the 2016 NHLA Convention & Exhibit Showcase Presenting Sponsor! The 2016 NHLA Annual Convention & Exhibit Showcase will be held October 5-7 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C, an international city with a draw for members and friends around the world. Since 1930, the luxurious Omni Shoreham Hotel has played host to presidents, world leaders and inaugural balls, making it a true Washington landmark.

The Opening Session for the 2016 NHLA Convention will include a joint presentation by Charles Krauthammer and Robert Reich, two of America’s most respected intellects. Charles Krauthammer is a Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist, author, political commentator and physician. Krauthammer’s award-winning weekly column is syndicated to more than 400 newspapers worldwide. Robert Reich is a political economist, professor, author and political commentator. Reich has been named one of Time Magazine’s most successful cabinet secretaries of the past centuries. Together, these two men will debate both sides of the upcoming Presidential election and the state of America.

NHLA looks forward to welcoming and hosting the world hardwood market once again to the "Global Gathering of the Hardwood Community." Please visit the convention website often as schedule updates will be posted as plans are finalized.
