4 Things To Watch Out For From funeralOne at ICCFA 2017April 1st, 2017
It’s that time of year again… our funeralOne team is all packed up, we’ve got our famous flower outfits in tow, and we are heading to Nashville for the 2017 International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association Convention! This event is one of our all-time favorites, not only because it’s a chance to meet our amazing customers and fellow funeral professionals face-to-face, but also because it’s always a great opportunity to see what is ahead for the future of the funeral profession.
Each year at ICCFA, every vendor breaks out a little preview of what is to come from their business in the near future… whether that’s a new piece of technology, a clever innovation that sets them apart from their competitors, or even a brand new product or service that has everyone lining up to see what’s possible for their own funeral home.
And this year, funeralOne will be doing the same… just times it by 100! This will be one of the biggest trade shows from the funeralOne team in a long time. And no, we’re not talking about the size of the hall or the number of people that will be in attendance. We’re talking about the sheer number of exciting announcements, giveaways and sneak peaks that we will be unveiling at this years show. Just to give you a taste, here’s a few things that you should watch out for from funeralOne at ICCFA 2017.
1. The Future of Funerals
We talk a lot on our blog about the future of funerals, and what technology and innovation may someday do for the funeral profession. Well, this year at ICCFA, we’re going to be doing a lot more than just talking… we’ll be showing off the future of funerals in our booth, including a sneak peek at what we’ve been up to over the last few years as we design some of the most innovative funeral products you can imagine.
Stop by our booth and make your dreams of the ultimate funeral of the future a reality through our interactive demos, heart-pumping video previews and even a show-and-tell with our CEO himself. We’ll be giving everyone a taste of the future of what’s possible in the funeral profession, and it will be unlike anything you’ve ever seen (or heard or touched) before. Seriously, you don’t want to miss this.
2. The Next Chapter Selfie Booth
If you’ve never stopped by the funeralOne selfie booth before, you’re in for a real treat this year. As soon as you walk in the exhibit hall entrance, you won’t be able to miss us — we’ll be the bright, energetic, celebration-filled booth that is snapping selfies, having fun and celebrating the opportunity to write the next chapter of funerals… together! So be sure that you stop by, say hello to our famous funeralOne flower girls, get dressed up in some silly props and get your photo! We’ll be sharing the photos we take all week on our social media channels, and we’ll even email you your photo after the show so you have something to remember ICCFA by.
3. The Giveaway Of A Lifetime
This year we’re doing something bigger, better and more unbelievable than anything we’ve ever done before… and that’s saying something. No, we’re not giving away an iPad, a free funeral website, or any of the other typical giveaways that you see at trade shows. We’re talking about a prize that’s on a whole other level.
We’re not going to spoil the surprise and tell you what we’re giving away. (That would ruin all the fun!) But what we will tell you is that winning this giveaway will completely transform your funeral home and put your community back into the heart of your business. So be sure to stop by our booth and drop off your business card so you can enter yourself to win a prize of a lifetime… It’s an opportunity you can’t afford to miss out on.
4. Live Content Throughout The Event

We will be sharing live highlights and recaps of this year’s convention all week long, including live commentary of some of the most exciting events, one-to-ones with key influencers about the top trends in our industry, behind-the-scenes photos of our team’s usual shenanigans, and even live-blogs from all of the best continuing education sessions.
