NWFA Expo & Coverings Co-Locate
ST. LOUIS, Missouri (February 1, 2021) – The National Wood Flooring Association, and the organizers of the Coverings international tile and stone exhibition, announced today that the NWFA’s 2021 Wood Flooring Expo and Coverings 2021 will be held simultaneously, July 7-9, in Orlando, Florida, at the Orange County Convention Center. The Wood Flooring Expo will be held in the South Hall, and Coverings will be held in the North Hall. Registered attendees, for either event, will have access to both exhibit show floors.

Both organizations rescheduled their events, which were originally planned for April, due to the ongoing restrictions as a result of COVID-19.

“Opportunities often present themselves in time of crisis. Coverings and the NWFA Expo are consistently held within weeks of each other every Spring. Given both organizations had to postpone their shows in April, it makes sense to be co-locating with Coverings to bring additional value to attendees of NWFA’s Wood Flooring Expo,” says NWFA President & CEO, Michael Martin. “We know from our membership surveys that NWFA members generally install and distribute multiple types of hard surface flooring. Combining the education and show floor for real wood, with the education and show floor for natural tile and stone, provides our members with opportunities to see more products in one place. They essentially will be getting two shows, at the same time, both of which promote natural flooring products.”

Jennifer Hoff, President of Taffy Event Strategies, which manages Coverings, says that “co-locating with NWFA’s Expo helps Coverings reaffirm its commitment to provide a safe, in-person event that unites the natural, hard surface flooring industry. Every step is being taken to ensure the events follow all guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as federal, state, and local government agencies.”

The NWFA Wood Flooring Expo (nwfaexpo.com) is the largest tradeshow and conference worldwide dedicated exclusively to real wood flooring. Coverings (coverings.com) is the largest international tile and stone exhibition and conference in North America. Both shows offer hundreds of exhibitors on the show floor from across the globe, as well as numerous educational opportunities to enhance industry knowledge for the events’ international attendees.

The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) 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 real wood flooring.

Coverings is the largest tile and natural stone event in North America. Show sponsors include Ceramics of Italy/Confindustria Ceramica, Ceramic Tile Manufacturers Association of Spain (ASCER), Tile Council of North America (TCNA), National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA), and Ceramic Tile Distributors Association (CTDA).
