The 30th Annual NATE Convention "Expanding the World of Trade"

The National Association of Trade Exchanges Hosts 30th Annual NATE Convention in Orlando

Orlando, FL. - The National Association of Trade Exchanges (NATE) held their 30th annual convention at the Double Tree Orlando Downtown where trade exchanges from all over the U.S. attended.

The convention this year was aimed at “Expanding the World of Trade” and consisted of seminars for trade exchange owners and brokers. Along with the seminars and discussion panels, convention attendees had a lot of other fun this year including many social events planned as a means for networking, a Welcome Meet & Greet Mixer and our awards banquet that was held at Disney’s Epcot Center.

The 2014 Platinum Sponsors were TradeFirst, MI and Trade Studio, WA.  Additional convention supporters for this year’s convention included Alamo Barter Corporation, Barter Business Exchange, Inc., New England Trade Inc., and The Barter Company.  Their generous contributions went to the planning, organizing and execution of convention events such as the Epcot Center banquet and Pirates Dinner Adventure outing.

In addition to the seminars moderated by exchange owners and brokers, NATE also offered free RTB (Registered Trade Broker) and CTB (Certified Trade Broker) training for those looking to advance their barter broker skills and knowledge in the Barter Industry.  The training and testing is the same for CTB & RTB. A RTB can only become a CTB after being in the Barter Industry for two years.  Congratulations to our newest 2014 RTBs and CTBs:

John Kucera CTB – Carolina Trade Exchange
Bonnie Williams CTB – Carolina Trade Exchange
Raye Fegan CTB – NATE Admininistrator/BANC Broker
Jason Johnston CTB – Bottom Line Barter
