St. Louis — For the second year in a row, the National Wood Flooring Association’s (NWFA) Wood Flooring Expo has been recognized as one of the 50 fastest-growing shows in the U.S. by Trade Show Executive magazine.
Trade Show Executive honors the fastest-growing trade shows and selects winners based on the percentage of growth in each of the following categories: net square feet, number of exhibiting companies and number of attendees.
The 2013 Wood Flooring Expo in Dallas recognized for net square feet and number of exhibiting companies. The 2012 Wood Flooring Expo in Orlando was recognized in all three categories.
“This is very rewarding recognition, especially as it’s for two years in a row,” said Michael Martin, NWFA president and CEO. “In 2012, our Expo committee and NWFA leadership worked together to completely rebuild the Expo from the ground up, and this growth clearly shows our Expo is delivering a strong return on investment for both our exhibitors and attendees. This past year in Nashville, we had another 30% surge in attendance, so we’re looking forward to exceeding expectations in 2015 when we bring the show to St. Louis for our 30th anniversary.”
The 2015 Wood Flooring Expo is scheduled for April 28–May 1 at the Edward Jones Dome, home of the St. Louis Rams football team, in St. Louis.
