St. Louis—With eight weeks to go until the National Wood Flooring Association’s (NWFA) 2016 Wood Flooring Expo, the tradeshow floor of the event has sold out with 485 booths registered to 273 companies. The event will be held April 27-30 in Charlotte, N.C.
“We really value early indicators such as this to let us know we are on track,” said Michael Martin, NWFA president and CEO.”The industry has come together, especially in recent years, and set an increasingly high bar for Expo. We aim to exceed it. During the past four years, we have enjoyed significant growth thanks to the support of our many sponsors, including this year’s checkered flag sponsors, 3M and Floor Pro Fastening. With their continued support and the continued confidence of our members, the NWFA is poised for another successful year.”
Trade Show Executive has recognized the Wood Flooring Expo as one of the top 50 fastest growing shows for 2012, 2013 and 2014; the show grew an average of 25% each year.
In addition to a sold out show floor, registrations and hotel reservations have increased compared to the 2015 Expo in St. Louis.
Expo’s “Floor It” theme will include NASCAR-oriented networking events at the Charlotte Convention Center and the NASCAR Hall of Fame Museum. It also will introduce long-term opportunities for NWFA and its members to pursue professional growth.
