Education

Education is Key

Knowing how important education is to a large sector of our audience, DOMOTEX USA tripled its education offering in 2020 to provide the ultimate business-building opportunity for flooring professionals.

The 2020 DOMOTEX USA Education Sessions offered incredible strategies, insights and networking opportunities to help our audience’s flooring businesses succeed in today’s intensely competitive retail environment. An impressive collection of guest speakers and industry insiders were assembled to make Education Sessions by DOMOTEX USA a must-attend event for anyone in the flooring business.

Four dedicated tracks were created to fit our audience’s needs, whether buying, selling, making, installing or designing with flooring. In 2020, six CEU- and four CCU-accredited courses were available since we understand the importance of continued education credits, as well as peer-to-peer learning and powerful networking at the launch of the DOMOTEX USA Discussion Hub.

Our dedication to providing a quality educational program at our next show is strong. To ensure that we meet the needs of our audience, we have done extensive research within the industry. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Show Director Donna Busse.
