For the 8th year in a row, The Ambassador Banquet & Conference Center and The Western Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Association teamed up for the 111th Western Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Association Convention and Expo. This year the Great Gatsby themed event featured 34 vendors ranging from caskets to funeral funding and everything in between. This event draws funeral directors and vendors from all across Pennsylvania and the surrounding states. Jim Scott, a board member of WPAFDA and the owner of Scott Funeral Home, expressed his gratitude for The Ambassador saying, “The facility fits us perfectly. All levels of the Ambassador were accommodating from the servers and housekeepers to the sales team”. The convention included educational seminars, merchandise sales and networking, which are all highly valued in the funeral business.
The Ambassador fully catered the event with a variety of gourmet food prepared by Chef Manny. On Wednesday, a brunch featuring multiple stations was highly complimented by the guests. This brunch included stations serving made-to-order omelets, carved ham, fresh waffles, mimosas, bloody Mary’s, banana foster and other deserts, along with a full buffet of breakfast and lunch foods.
The Western Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Association is already looking forward to next year’s convention at The Ambassador Banquet and Conference Center.
