Educational Seminars. Casual Social Events. Helpful Exhibits.

Hitch your wagons and mosey on over to the 2014 Funeral Directors Convention and Expo, possibly the most widely anticipated event of its kind on the Eastern Seaboard.

Hosted by the New Jersey State Funeral Directors Association, Inc. (NJSFDA), this annual event sports continuing education seminars, an exhibit hall featuring the latest in funeral service merchandise and services, and helps you network with colleagues and friends at premier social events.

The Trump Taj Mahal, situated directly on the Atlantic City boardwalk, serves as your "convention headquarters." This landmark hotel’s unique layout allows us to house all the convention activities under one roof, from morning coffee to late-night cocktails.

Funeral service professionals can start their day at the complimentary coffee bar on Wednesday and Thursday mornings before moving on to a mixture of informative educational seminars. A tasty "walking lunch" is available in the exhibit hall both Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.

The convention excitement continues with signature events, starting with Tuesday’s Exhibit Hall Wine and Cheese Reception marking the official opening of the exposition area. Later on that same night, attendees can gather with their friends at one of the casino’s best bars before retiring for the night.

Following another full day of seminars and educational sessions, join your fellow colleagues at the Convention Happy Hour Party, featuring light finger foods, specialty beer, wine and soda. If you don’t have to rush off, be sure to stick around after happy hour ends as Matthews Casket Division kicks up the volume at their annual party. Be sure to dress casual. Wear your dancing shoes because After the Reign, New Jersey's popular country band, has some full-on fun in store for everyone.

Our Convention Has it All.

You might want to take in some of the city’s excitement during your downtime between seminars and events. The Trump Taj Mahal has it all. Consider cruising along Spice Road, a selection of more than 15 shops and restaurants located on the hotel’s second level overlooking the casino floor.

If gambling is more your scene, you can try your luck at one of the Taj Mahal’s 2,500 slot machines and 200 game tables. Visit the hotel’s baccarat pit or smoke-free poker room, home to the United States Poker Championship.

NOTE: The Trump Taj Mahal is not affected by the Trump Plaza Casino Hotel's decision to close in September.
Our event is still scheduled as planned.


We are looking forward to seeing you in Atlantic City!
