Each year, the NBSCA hosts a Vendor Show in conjunction with the NBA Pre-Draft Combine in Chicago, IL, where companies and their representatives have an opportunity to demonstrate and provide information on their products to the NBA’s Strength & Conditioning Coaches. For information on how to become a part of next year’s show, please contact our Vendor Show Director, Keith D’Amelio, at email@example.com
This year’s NBSCA Vendor Show was the best yet. Nearly every team was represented by a Head Strength Coach or assistant (and in some cases, both). The coaches were all extremely engaged and courteous and took the time to have meaningful conversations with vendors about their products. There were many new coaches this year, and the Vendor Show provided a great opportunity to meet them. This is the one event where vendors can interact with the NBA Strength Coaches in one location, which makes the Vendor Show an invaluable marketing opportunity.
I’m proud to be associated with the NBSCA Vendor Show since its inception and look forward to many more years of the strong partnership.

The NBSCA Vendor Show is a once in year opportunity to meet and converse with the Head Strength or Assistant Strength Coach from almost every team in the NBA. The quality time you have with each coach to talk shop with regards to there equipment needs or wants is by far the best a vendor could ask for. Very personable and out standing in how it is organized and the length of time you have to show off your products. I would highly recommend this show to any vendor looking to do business in the NBA, I look forward to continuing our presence at the NBSCA Vendor Show for many years to come.
