Jim Aaron, executive director of the Floor Covering Education Foundation (FCEF), will deliver the keynote message “The FCEF – An Agent for Change.”

In addition to the keynote speaker, the agenda will include several additional featured speakers, panel discussions, hands-on sessions and opportunities to network before and after the conference, according to the company. Thursday marks the opening of the Exhibit Hall, where leading industry manufacturers and service providers will showcase their latest products and services that help attendees further develop their professional and technical skills.

“If you are a flooring installation professional, the CFI Convention and Expo is the place you need to be to elevate your career to the next level,” Humphrey said. “There is no other convention like it—CFI is a tight-knit group of hard-working, loyal and proud individuals who are driven by the pursuit of excellence. This experience will make attendees more confident and excited to be in this industry. You do not want to miss it!”

According to John McHale, operations manager, CFI, attendance at the convention is open to both members and non-members. “Last year, we saw a record 73 first-time attendees who were inspired by this group’s enthusiasm, support and camaraderie,” McHale said. “The connections made here with manufacturers and peers only happen when people come together.”
