CHICAGO – Hannover Fairs USA (HFUSA), the organizer of DOMOTEX USA, announced today that The North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD) has entered into a partnership with HFUSA to exhibit at the inaugural trade show. As part of its partnership agreement, the NAFCD will actively promote the show to its membership and will host a distributor lounge on the show floor from February 28 to March 2, 2019. The NAFCD distributor lounge will offer a unique space for wholesale flooring distributors and suppliers of floor coverings and allied products to meet their peers and to hold one-on-one meetings. The NAFCD is a growing, non-profit trade association, featuring more than 200 company members that represent 600 distribution centers in the U.S. and Canada.
“DOMOTEX USA is a terrific platform for us to connect with our members, to share what resources we offer prospective members and to help floor covering manufacturers and importers meet North American distributors. Our distributor members can use DOMOTEX USA to connect with fellow members and to develop relationships with suppliers looking for new distribution,” said Kevin Gammonley, Executive Vice President of NAFCD.
During the event, the association will showcase industry research & data and will discuss cutting edge trends and topics relevant to wholesale flooring distributors. “A majority of our members are located East of the Mississippi so the show’s Atlanta location is a major draw for us,” added Gammonley.
“Partnering with NAFCD is a perfect way for us to expand DOMOTEX USA’s reach to the wholesale flooring distributors in North America,” said Donna Busse, show director of DOMOTEX USA at HFUSA.
