Flooring Markets events continue as scheduled

Home COVID-19 Flooring Markets events continue as scheduled

The 2021 Flooring Markets, held in Atlanta, Dallas and Biloxi, are continuing to move ahead as scheduled, show organizers said.

“We are working diligently to take the necessary actions to bring you a safe and successful market,” show organizers said in an email. “We understand the hardships caused by the coronavirus outbreak, and we are committed to the well-being of our clients, buyers, exhibitors, sponsors and fellow industry professionals.”

Steps Flooring Markets is taking

The attendee and exhibitor experience with face-to-face platforms has evolved, and Flooring Markets said it is continuing to focus on what steps it can take to enhance the market experience while providing a safe environment to conduct business.

It has redesigned and focused on key areas at the markets such as:

  • Contactless registration
  • Staggered badge check-in times
  • Increased sanitation of common public areas including registration counters and publication bins
  • Designated market hours for at-risk attendees
  • Directional traffic throughout market
  • Increased space between booths and aisles
  • Floor decals to ensure social distancing
  • Sanitation stations

Partner Updates

The Flooring Markets team said it is working closely with all of its facilities and event production partners to ensure attendee safety. As its regional markets are smaller in nature, it is said to offer a safer alternative. Organizers will continue to follow the advice of public health and industry professionals, as well as follow all state and local guidelines. Facility, market and event protocols are being updated on an ongoing basis, and updates  can be found at flooringmarkets.com.

The market has extended its 2021 exhibit early-bird rate for new applicants to July 15 as decisions have been delayed due to COVID-19.
