Peter and Warwick George were able to attend the 2016 National Wood Flooring Association Expo in Charlotte, North Carolina. The event was held on April 27th-30th at the downtown Charlotte Convention Center.
Professionals from all over the world were able to gather, chat and observe all things associated with wood flooring. There were more than 20 hours of education sessions in Marketing/Sales, Technical Skills, Management and Architecture/Design. There was also a collaboration meeting encouraging attendees to share experiences and best practices in the industry. The Expo also included a Trade Show, Exhibitor Demonstrations and a Distributor and Manufacturer Reception. Amongst the crowd there were some familiar faces such as Akhurst Machinery, who were there demonstrating the Powermax 300 All-in-one Defect Saw & End Matcher with WoodCo's very own flooring, the Victoria Plank. As for the not so familiar ones, they were happy to meet some of our team, “we ran into people who said we received a call from someone from your office and we loved your products,” said Peter George. “It was a great experience and can’t wait to do it again.”
Next year’s Expo will be held in Phoenix, Arizona in April.
