Welcome to the 2022 LBM Expo

Welcome to the 2022 LBM Expo,  

LBM Expo is moving to the Earth Expo and Convention Center at Mohegan Sun! We are extremely excited to be in a location that offers meeting and entertainment space all under one roof at significant cost savings for exhibitors and attendees alike. Mohegan Sun is easy to get to, offers top shelf dining and entertainment, free parking (both self-parking and valet) and so much more. 

Our show floor features hundreds of vendors offering the latest products and services in the industry. NRLA has also selected the best national speakers to address the issues you’re facing now and to prepare you for the future. Mark Altman of MINDSETGO will kick off the Expo with “Syncing Five Generations in the Workplace, Unite your Employees, Cultural Values & Goals” focusing on maximizing generational similarities and capitalizing on their differences. 

LBM Expo will continue to offer free education on the show floor in our building demo zones. This year Matt Whitbeck and Gary Striegler will be on our main stages using their expertise for teaching the best practices that will help you help your customers. 

On Wednesday, Chris Lambton, a native of Cape Cod and host of HGTV’s “Going Yard,” will be on the show floor discussing the latest in outdoor living trends. 

We will wrap up Expo education with an economic outlook from President and Chief Economist of Graphs and Laughs, Elliot Eisenberg Ph.D. Formerly a senior economist with the National Association of Home Builders, he is an expert on the economic impacts of industries, such as homebuilding and tourism and the consequences of government regulation. With an engaging narrative and warm demeanor, Dr. Eisenberg infuses colorful perspective to the world of economics, providing expert insight in an unconventional manner that leaves audiences stimulated, informed, and wildly entertained. 

LBM Expo offers many networking opportunities. Connect with old and new friends as we bring the extremely popular “Discover Providence” tour to Mohegan Sun with a Discover Mohegan Sun pub tour where NRLA state and local associations will host attendees at various establishments to enjoy refreshments and compete for prizes. The fun continues Thursday night, after the NRLA Annual Business Meeting, with a Holiday Reception where we will celebrate the festive season while enjoying good food and drink and lively conversation with our peers. 

All of this and so much more will be waiting for you in the most ideal environment, all under one roof!
