Hundreds of Hearses Appear at Funeral Convention

October 15, 2008 | | Comments 1

If you drove by the Orange County Convention Center in sunny Florida this week, you are likely going to see hundreds of new and old hearses sitting in the parking lot.

According to SFTV in Orlando, thousands of funeral directors and personnel are gathering at the state-of-the-art facility to get updated on the latest technologies and trends in the industry. In total, about 5,000 funeral professionals are going to be there in their flashy hearses and classic funeral cars.

The National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) sponsors the convention each year to give those in the industry a chance to meet each other and learn what’s going on in their profession. The NFDA has been a great asset to the funeral industry for more than a century. It began in 1880 when more than two dozen undertakers in Michigan held a meeting that helped to form what later became the NFDA in 1882. Today, the NFDA is the largest and oldest organization in the world that helps the industry. It helps create new funeral homes and provides services for existing funeral homes while publishing material for the general public to help ensure that they get treated with respect and professionalism in their time of grief.
