2022 NFBA Frame Building Expo

NFBA Frame Building Expo Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Why was the NFBA Frame Building Expo postponed?
NFBA was forced to postpone the event due to current State and Local regulations from the Metro Public Health Department in Nashville/Davidson County related to the COVID-19 pandemic.  As important as the Expo and Conference is to all of us, your safety and well-being is paramount to NFBA.

When and where will the next Frame Building Expo be held?
We know that exhibitors and attendees alike were excited to get to Nashville and the good news is we have secured dates for 2022 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center. The 2022 Frame Building Expo will take place from January 18 – 20.

Will I receive a refund of my exhibit fees that were paid for 2021?
NFBA has decided that 2021 Exhibitors can proceed with one of two options for the exhibit fees already paid.

  • Exhibitors may choose to transfer exhibit fees already paid towards a booth at NFBA 2022 if the exhibitor submits their application to NFBA Expo Management by February 1, 2021.


  • Exhibitors may choose to receive a refund of exhibit fees paid to date, less 15% of the total amount agreed upon for Expo space to help NFBA cover the Expo expenses incurred for 2021.

To notify us of your decision we are asking exhibitors to complete and submit the survey prior to February 4, 2021.

How long will it take to receive a refund?
NFBA estimates that upon receipt of the exhibitor response to the survey, refunds will be issued within 30-60 days via check.

Will I need to complete a new Application for Expo Space in 2022? 
Yes. Due to the changes in the Terms and Conditions of the 2021 contract, we are requiring all exhibitors to complete and resubmit the 2022 Frame Building Expo Application.

Is the 2022 Expo floor plan the same as 2021?  
We have been able to secure additional space at the Gaylord Convention Center. Originally, we were only in C1 for the Expo. NFBA has been able to secure additional space in C1 and C2, allowing for us to expand the Expo floor plan. This means that exhibitors can request a similar location, or expand their current booth size, if desired.

Will I retain my same booth location?  What if I want to change the size or location of my current booth space?
We will be redrawing the 2021 floor plan with this additional space and scheduling a 2022 Expo space selection process via telephone in the coming months, giving your organization the best opportunity to pick the ideal location for NFBA 2022.

NFBA Attendee List Reminder
Some NFBA exhibitors have been receiving communications from companies soliciting the NFBA attendee list. Please note that these companies are posing as official representatives of the NFBA Frame Building Expo to sell unofficial attendee data lists. These companies are unrelenting and are known to constantly change their company and domain names, but they have no affiliation with the NFBA, and we cannot recommend purchasing a list through them. Exhibitors are advised to beware of anyone soliciting on behalf of the NFBA. Please contact us at NFBA@heiexpo.com with questions
