My brother Jake and I went out to Las Vegas for the week for the Surfaces convention at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
Surfaces is the leading floor covering industry event, it brings together thousands of retailers, distributors, installers, designers and home builders for three days of face-to-face networking, education and product sourcing. There were over 600 companies of all types of flooring related companies exhibiting at the show. Hardwood Flooring was the most popular category of all the exhibits.
This was the first time Allegheny Mountain had any type of representation at the show. The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) had a pavilion for the first time this year and provided us with the option of having a kiosk within this pavilion instead of having our own booth at the show. This worked out great for us. It allowed us a prime location at this expo and allowed us more opportunity for networking and higher overall traffic.
Hardwood Flooring Magazine also did a nice blog about the convention, and they quoted me. You can see this below.
