NWFA Expo, Coverings to be held simultaneously

Home COVID-19 COVID-19-home NWFA Expo, Coverings to be held simultaneously

The NWFA Expo and Coverings tile show will be held simultaneously in July.

Orlando, Fla.—The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) Wood Flooring Expo and the Coverings International Tile and Stone Exhibition will be held simultaneously, July 7-9, here, at the Orange County Convention Center. The Wood Flooring Expo will be held in the South Hall, and Coverings will be held in the North Hall. Registered attendees, for either event, will have access to both exhibit show floors.

Both organizations said they rescheduled their events, which were originally planned for April, due to the ongoing restrictions as a result of COVID-19.

“Opportunities often present themselves in time of crisis,” said Michael Martin, NWFA president & CEO. “Coverings and the NWFA Expo are consistently held within weeks of each other every spring. Given both organizations had to postpone their shows in April, it makes sense to be co-locating with Coverings to bring additional value to attendees of NWFA’s Wood Flooring Expo. We know from our membership surveys that NWFA members generally install and distribute multiple types of hard surface flooring. Combining the education and show floor for real wood with the education and show floor for natural tile and stone, provides our members with opportunities to see more products in one place.  They essentially will be getting two shows, at the same time, both of which promote natural flooring products.”

Jennifer Hoff, president of Taffy Event Strategies, which manages Coverings, added, “co-locating with NWFA’s Expo helps Coverings reaffirm its commitment to provide a safe, in-person event that unites the natural, hard surface flooring industry. Every step is being taken to ensure the events follow all guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as federal, state and local government agencies.”

The NWFA Wood Flooring Expo is the largest trade show and conference worldwide dedicated exclusively to real wood flooring. Coverings is the largest international tile and stone exhibition and conference in North America. Both shows offer hundreds of exhibitors on the show floor from across the globe, as well as numerous educational opportunities to enhance industry knowledge for the events’ international attendees.
