Dallas—The annual CFI convention is the go-to event for information on new products, tools, techniques and installation training. The show packs everything installers need to know into two days. This year’s highly anticipated program will take place here August 3-5.

The CFI convention attracts professionals from every sector of the flooring industry. It is the show “where all of the business surrounding installation happens”—a uniquely dedicated launching pad for companies debuting their latest offerings.

A few of the standout agenda items planned for this year’s convention include:

ŸCustom vinyl inset workshop: Leading technical trainers from Tarkett, Congoleum and Armstrong team up to present this hands-on workshop where attendees will create custom vinyl insets they can take home.

ŸHand sewing workshop: Presented by the CFI Training Team, stations will be set up for various hand-sewing stitch demos attendees will be able to complete and take home as a reference for future installations.

Inspection trends roundtable: Manufacturers, retailers, installers and inspectors will have the opportunity to present, discuss and answer questions and concerns about the latest trends in inspections.

“Understanding How You Are Wired – The DISC Behavioral Profile” presented by Scott Humphrey, CEO of the World Floor Covering Association: Understand yourself and those you work and live with. Humphrey will identify possible friction points between different personality types and give practical advice on improving relationships with colleagues, family, etc.
