2017 Winter Convention
We recently took a trip to Phoenix, AZ for Carpet One Floor & Home’s annual winter convention. It was full of great information and people so we thought we would share some of our experiences with you. Each day there were educational sessions where we sat with industry leaders to learn about the latest news and trends as well as ways that we can better serve you!
On the convention floor we were able to meet with many flooring vendors. We made some new friends and got to visit with some older friends from Shaw, Leggett & Platt and others. They filled us in on their newest products and updates. This is always great because when we get back to our store we know that we are offering our customers the very best products available.
Some new products that we are excited about are a new H2O 8”x6” interlocking vinyl plank from Beauflor. We also saw something that I had never seen before. Vertical Solutions has released wall tile that provides a 3D effect and creates an incredibly eye catching wall.
Not only was it valuable to see the vendors, products and speakers but we were also able to meet with many other great store owners from all over North America. We were able to bounce ideas off each other, share experiences that have improved customer experience and build connections.
On the last night of convention everybody headed out to the Arizona desert for a night of fun. There was great food, bonfires, games and live music. It gave us a chance to meet with others on a more casual level and have a good time.
Overall, we had a great convention experience and it was another example of why we are so proud to be part of such a great cooperative. Next up, Salt Lake City!
