The 2014 show - the 52nd in the annual series - will continue to be the key place for flooring retailers to meet and do business with their existing major suppliers, and with potential new suppliers. It will embrace another excellent retail seminar programme, a retail-focused social media programme, the Wool Trends Centre featuring leading British manufacturers, and a comprehensive marketing campaign targeting the entire UK retail flooring sector, coordinated with leading trade media and exhibitors.


As the main national forum for the contract and commercial flooring sector, the show will include a commercial flooring seminar programme offering valuable content, as well as two flooring installation Demonstration Zones, increased exhibitor participation from contract flooring companies and active promotion to architects, specifiers, contractors and facilities managers.
