Thank You for attending the 2019 Conference & Expo
The 2019 AFRDS Conference & Expo in Las Vegas was a success! More than 700 fundraising professionals gathered at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Resort & Casino last month
for the world’s only conference devoted entirely to product fundraising. Attendance was up slightly and the mood was upbeat as AFRDS members explored new and exciting products on the
Expo floor. Reactions were positive for our education presenters, and comedian and keynote speaker, Mark Mayfield had everyone laughing to close out the Annual Meeting.
Below are some highlights from this year’s event:
- A brand new headquarters location at the famous Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Resort & Casino
- Increased member attendance
- New Conference & Expo App
- Exciting new schedule packed with education
