Forney, Texas—The International Certified Flooring Installation Association’s (CFI) 27th Annual Convention & Expo, which was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, has been rescheduled to December 9-11, 2020 at Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Fla.

“Our employees, members and partners are our highest priority, and we’re committed to taking strong, proactive measures to help ensure their health and safety,” said Robert Varden, executive director, CFI. “We are excited to deliver the 2020 Annual Conference in person. Now, more than ever, it is important for the floor covering professionals from every sector to come together to discuss the challenges surrounding installation they have encountered, how they have adapted their safety practices and the lessons they have learned.”

Since 1993, CFI’s Annual Conference & Expo brings together flooring industry professionals from across the globe to stay up to date on best practices and new techniques; network with peers; obtain certifications; attend hand-on training; and stay informed on the latest tools and services available. The three-day educational event, sponsored by Personna and Taylor Adhesives, will kick off with a welcome reception. In addition to educational seminars and workshops, CFI will host its second annual golf tournament at the Shingle Creek Golf Club.
