Atlanta, Ga.—On January 3-4, 2018, top flooring industry manufacturers, retailers and buyers from across the southeastern U.S. will gather at Atlanta’s Cobb Galleria Centre for the 2018 Southeast Flooring Market (SFM).
Formerly known as the Cobb Flooring Show, the market has been providing attendees with early access to new products and emerging trends, as well as ample opportunities for networking. The two-day market is the industry’s premier event for fostering connections and encouraging business growth across the region.
The 2018 market, produced by Market Maker Events, will include an additional exhibition hall to meet the growing demands of buyers, retailers and manufacturers in the southeast. “Business is strong in the region—last year, we saw nearly 25% growth in attendance over the previous year, and we had attendees from across 11 states,” said Barbara Stroup, managing partner at Market Maker Events. “The 2017 show sold out, so this year we’re expanding to meet the needs of the industry.”
Held at Atlanta’s Cobb Galleria Centre, SFM is easily accessible for attendees from within Georgia and across the south. The venue is only 30 minutes from Atlanta’s Hartsfield International Airport and offers numerous nearby accommodation options. In addition, the market’s close proximity to Dalton, the “carpet capital of the world,” makes it a convenient destination for both attendees and exhibitors.
