The only wood flooring expo dedicated exclusively to wood flooring starts today – NWFA Wood Flooring Expo 2016!
The opening ceremony for NWFA Wood Flooring Expo 2016 starts today in Charlotte, NC. The expo is a “must see” event for professionals in the wood flooring industry and features top-notch educational sessions capped with the NWFA Awards Ceremony. In addition, there are more than 420 booths in attendance and attendees can browse the showroom to learn about the latest products and services.
As we’ve mentioned countless times in our blog: NWFA certification and training is paramount to the performance of a wood flooring professional. We take pride in the fact that all of our foremen are NWFA certified and trained in the latest techniques. When Metro Atl. Floors attends these types of events, we relish the opportunity to learn from the wood flooring industry’s leading educator.
The expo begins with an Opening General Session and Moonshine Madness Reception this evening. Junior Johnson, moonshine and NASCAR racing pioneer, will be in attendance for the reception and the kickoff event promises to be something you won’t want to miss.
Educational sessions are broken down into five categories: Marketing/Sales, Management, Technical Skills, Architecture/Design, and a Collaboration track that brings together attendees to share experiences and best practices with each other.
The event concludes April 30th with the annual Wood Floor of the Year awards plus the presentation of new degrees. NASCAR racing legend and NWFA Wood Flooring Expo 2016 keynote speaker Rusty Wallace wraps up the event and sends everyone off on a high note.
One of the main attractions of the expo is the immense trade show floor that includes 420 booths representing the wood flooring industry’s top brands, products and services. Leading brands that will be present at the expo include: Mullican Flooring, Bostik Inc., DuraSeal, Lagler, Bona US, Norton Abrasives, Basic Coastings, plus many, many more.
