Funeral Information You Won’t Find Anywhere Else

The Doyenne of Death and Elvis

Gail Rubin and “Elvis” celebrate funerals at ICCFA 2022.

The International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association (ICCFA) held its annual convention in person for the first time since the pandemic shut down. The convention and expo was held in Las Vegas, Nevada March 22-25, 2022.

As The Doyenne of Death®, I attend this event as a journalist and interview exhibitors at the expo on new developments in the field. You can view videos of the interviews through the “Tools of the Trade” playlist on my YouTube Channel.

Among the interviews at the 2022 ICCFA convention and expo, you’ll find products and services related to funerals and cemeteries. There are interviews with people offering software for cemeteries and funeral homes, autopsy equipment, body bags, insurance assignments, online streaming services, fireless cremation equipment, and more.

While in the past there have been many funeral coaches (a.k.a. hearses) and other vehicles displayed at the expo, this year there was only one high-end hearse on the expo floor. OpusXenta, a software company that works in the death care space, had an Elvis Presley impersonator at their booth for all three days. He was a big hit with attendees at the convention.

Interviews published to date include these companies and services:

Here’s a sample of one of the interviews:
