“This is new territory for NWFA,” says Board Chairman, Craig Dupra. “In less than a month, the NWFA team has worked through cancelling all the contracts and logistics for the in-person Expo in Milwaukee, researched virtual event technologies, reshuffled the entire schedule, and put together a comprehensive program that will continue to serve our industry. I can’t wait for it to launch.”

Registration for the Virtual Expo is open at www.nwfaexpo.org. Attendance is free.

The National Wood Flooring Association is a not-for-profit trade organization, with more than 3,200 member companies world-wide, dedicated to educating consumers, architects, designers, specifiers and builders in the uses and benefits of wood flooring.
