CFI, FCICA Partner to Host Combined Convention
The International Certified Flooring Installers Association (CFI) and the Floor Covering Installation Contractors Association (FCICA) have teamed up to co-host a convention and expo in September.
The event combines both associations’ separate conventions.
CFI traditionally hosts its annual convention and expo in August. FCICA holds two meetings each year, a convention in spring and a mid-year meeting in fall.
“We’ve been working closely together for many years, advocating for the same issues and attending each other’s conferences,” says John McHale, director of operations of CFI. “Through our combined efforts, we can offer a unique convention experience that will bring tremendous value and opportunity to our members and exhibitors. As a result, they can explore additional products, services, trends and opportunities to grow their businesses and maintain a competitive edge in the marketplace.”
The three-day event will take place at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando, Fla., Sept. 20-22. It will feature educational seminars, in-depth breakout sessions and training, product demonstrations, an exhibit hall and networking opportunities with friends and colleagues from across the floor covering installation and commercial flooring industry. In addition, there will be a golf tournament at the Shingle Creek Golf Club.
The convention is open to all floor covering professionals, including installation professionals, commercial flooring contractors, distributors, manufacturers and consultants.
