FCNews to sponsor education sessions at Surfaces East

Home Inside FCNews FCNews to sponsor education sessions at Surfaces East

Volume 27/Number 21; March 3/10, 2014

Hicksville, N.Y.—The recent International Surface Event in Las Vegas proved to be the most successful edition in recent years with attendance up 7% and exhibitors exceeding their expectations in terms of writing orders. So for show manager Hanley Wood, the attention now shifts to preparing for the inaugural International Surface Event East, slated for Oct. 19-22 in Miami Beach, Fla.

While Hanley Wood promises a different feel than the Las Vegas event, one constant will be a strong, wide-ranging education conference. And, once again, FCNews will sponsor the flooring portion of the program, which includes the sessions geared toward business as well as sales and marketing.

The Surfaces East education conference covers a plethora of topics, from business, sales and marketing, and building design and trends to flooring installation, stone fabrication/installation and care/maintenance/ restoration.

FCNews believes education is the single most important factor to improving the profitability and professionalism of the floor covering industry,” said Steven Feldman, FCNews publisher and editorial director. “We look to promote training in some form 26 times a year in the pages of FCNews, and Hanley Wood does an exceptional job of putting together a valuable educational conference. In fact, it can be argued that retailers could attend the International Surface Event East just for the education.”

More details on the education program at Surfaces East will become available throughout the year.
