NFDA logoGreetings from the opening of the National Funeral Directors Association annual convention and expo in Austin, Texas!

I’m here to report on new trends in funeral service, and let you know about innovations that will be coming to the general public. Almost 6,000 people from around the world have come here for this event, with 101 delegates from 43 countries – including 43 from Australia!

Among the innovations that will be on display are the winners of the first ever Design for Death Competition. The competition drew more than 1,300 entries from 69 countries. One of those winners is JaeRhin Lee, the woman who did the TEDX talk about her Mushroom Burial Suit.
