CFI Convention Underway Now in Orlando

Dalton, GA, August 3, 2022––The Certified Flooring Installers Association (CFI) annual convention and expo is underway now in Orlando, Florida at the Rosen Shingle Creek, running through August 4.

The theme, "Elevate," is centered around the vision and passion carried through CFI from its founding, which aims to bring awareness to quality flooring installation.

The show opened with the pre-convention regional installation competition on July 31 and August 1. The inaugural regional competitions in Orlando, St. Louis, and San Leandro are part of the National Installer of the Year Competition at TISE 2023. 

Today begins with the annual golf tournament at Shingle Creek Golf Club. For non-golfers, there will be round table discussions from FCEF and Women in Floorcovering, hosted by Jen Zurn. A lineup of engaging speakers will present a wide range of topics in the afternoon, including lunch with Roland, steps, insurance, ask an attorney, and retailers and installers, a panel led by Chris McKee, Dean Howell, Don Roberts, Typhannie Watson, Marquis Wright, and Alaina Walters. Wednesday will wrap up with the dinner and awards ceremony. 

The last day of the show will include a general session, generations next, and the exhibit hall, where attendees will have the opportunity to speak with industry suppliers about the latest technology, innovations, and products. The show will wrap up with the closing and fun night.
