BrandSource members looking to rustle up a reservation for Convention 2022 can now head on over to the AVB Events page, where registration has officially opened for the group’s annual summer show.

This year’s national meeting and product expo is slated for Aug. 28-31, when BrandSource and its industry partners will make a triumphant return to the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Dallas.

A sister site to the Gaylord Opryland, AVB first converged on the Lone Star facility in 2019. Since then, BrandSource members have gone on to win significant market share, leading to this year’s show theme of “Own it,” and CEO Jim Ristow’s pledge not to cede any of the group’s gains.

At Convention, members will be treated a full slate of education tracks courtesy of HRSource, ServiceSource, Furniture Technology Source and AVB Marketing. In addition, attendees will learn the latest about the high-margin, inflation-resistant luxury segment in a special series of Luxe Brand presentations, while a record number of vendor partners provide product trainings on their newest wares.

The Gaylord Texan itself offers such amenities as a 10-acre Paradise Springs Water Park; a world-class, European-style Relâche Spa & Salon; and easy access to the Expo floor. Located on Lake Grapevine, it is also a short, seven-minute drive from the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

So wrangle up your colleagues and mosey on over to to register for Convention 2022!
