What is a roadshow?
It’s a local networking, informational, small workshop gathering in regions of California where there are building material dealers who may find it difficult to travel to a general meeting of CBMDA.
We bring low cost events to your area to meet, greet, establish or re-establish business relationships that will help you profit by association. Bringing new innovative products to your area, instructing how and when to use vendor products, socializing with all local members and guests.
Enjoy guest speakers from the code and regulatory entities, experts in legal issues, accounting, or any special area that affects management.
Help sponsor a show with your newest and innovative product displays and brochures. Have fun with our raffle prizes, games, demos, food, beverages (non-alcoholic), and good conversations; all which help to make these events worthwhile. All this for just a couple of hours at a local location that is easy to get to, get home from, low cost, and is sure to be fun.
Join us today.
CBMDA Roadshow coordinator may invites a dealer or associate member (or they may, of course, volunteer) to host the local event. By hosting your company provides the venue, the location and area in your facility to have the event. The host helps the main sponsor, usually an associate member, arrange for tables, chairs, table cloths, etc. from a local trusted party rental shop. The sponsor may contact a local catering establishments to arrange for refreshments (and pick a menu; suggestions are always welcome).
Guest expert speakers in the building industry is always a good focal point; or entertainment is welcome at the event.
Sponsorship levels will be available for a variety of advertising and recognition levels. Donations of raffle prizes are welcome to create a fun atmosphere for everyone. You can even sponsor the entertainment, the presentation, or a Guest Speaker from your own company.
All local building material dealers (current members or not), all member vendors are welcome to participate but if the host company asks that no displays of competing products be displayed, we will respect that request. Nonmember associate vendors may participate but we ask that they seriously consider becoming a paid member. (This event is for Manufacturers and Building Material Dealers only please.)
CBMDA office may assist the host and main sponsor to create flyers, email, and web announcements for distribution by hand, mail etc. We find personal invitations work best to ensure a great turnout and help build good relationships with your neighboring dealers and vendors.
COST TO ATTEND?
These Roadshows are designed to be FREE to invited dealers, guests, and members. The cost is covered by sponsors.

CBMDA’s goal is to have a Roadshow 4 times a year. We need your participation to make this work. The day of the week for hosting a Roadshow is flexible at this time. As we get established, we will create a schedule and post information on the web and emails. Please sign up for MailChimp for an efficient way of keeping our interested folks updated.
