CarpetsPlus Colortile Summits enhance member businesses through networking, sharing best practices, and training. These events are hosted by a CarpetsPlus Colortile member who opens his or her business for the benefit of the group.

Ron Dunn, co-CEO, said, “Summits are about members getting a behind the scenes view of how a fellow dealer runs their business. Being a member of CarpetsPlus Colortile allows members to get this type of ‘insider information’ that is readily shared with them. It’s an advantage over their competition that non-members just don’t have access to.”
