By Ben Nystrom, 02/27/12

As the only annual convention and trade show in the country devoted exclusively to hardwood flooring, the NWFA Wood Flooring Expo is a can’t-miss event on the calendar of savvy hardwood flooring suppliers nationwide. Here are four quick points to keep in mind about this year’s event that are sure to make your visit an enjoyable — and profitable — experience.

This year’s theme: Renewal

As green shoots of business opportunity begin to peek through the snows of several tough years for the US economy, now is the perfect time to talk about fresh starts. That’s why this year’s Expo is all about renewing your prospects, your energy, and your business. Renew your contacts with networking opportunities, renew your hardwood flooring education with the newly revamped trade show, and renew yourself with a full schedule of social events, including a Closing Party on the trade show floor.

Where it’s at: Gaylord Palms Resort

With its turn-of-century styling and sun-drenched grandeur, the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center will provide a regal backdrop for this premier gathering of hardwood flooring suppliers. Attendees will receive a discounted room rate of $199 per night, and you can make your hotel reservations when you register for the Expo at nwfaexpo.org.

Hands-on understanding: The NWFA Demo Theater

In the business of hardwood flooring, education is a lifetime commitment. Learn the latest techniques and tricks from industry experts at the NWFA Demo Theater, where continuous demonstrations will cover topics from hand-scraping and distressing to bending and installing brass. Drop in and take your hardwood flooring education to the PhD level.

Supplier savings: the NWFA Expo Coupon Book

This year, Expo exhibitors are leaving no stone unturned to bring attendees real savings on their wares. A NWFA Expo Coupon Book will be given to every attendee upon check-in. Just take the supplier’s coupon to that company’s trade show booth, then you can redeem the coupon with your local distributor when you get back home.
