BATESVILLE, Ind., July 27, 2021 – Batesville joins the National Funeral Directors and Morticians Association in welcoming its members to the 84th Annual Convention and Expo taking place July 31 – August 5 in Grapevine, Texas. This is the company’s first large in-person event since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and Batesville is taking advantage of the opportunity to showcase new burial and cremation products that will be available later this summer and fall.

“We look forward to the NFDMA event every year, and it is especially rewarding to be able to express our gratitude and respect for the amazing work funeral directors have done throughout this crisis, and to share this experience in person,” said Jenn Parvin, vice president of marketing and technology at Batesville.
