It’s the most wonderful time of the year; flooring market season! I don’t know about you, but I get really excited this time of year! It’s like a non-stop flooring pep rally for the next two months. We have waited all year, even longer due to some delays from the past few years, and we finally get to see all of the new and exciting products that are being introduced. Here are my thoughts on why you should attend some of the upcoming flooring shows: Win free stuff! Network with peers Visit warmer climates Get a first look in-person at new 2022 products Get an idea of what trends will be popular next year Take advantage of exclusive exhibitor specials that are only available to attendees Speak with manufacturers to get first-hand information on how to overcome the ongoing supply chain disruptions Many of the buying groups are holding in-person events in January and February. TriState Territory Managers and our wonderful partners will be present at many of these events, so make sure to stop by and check out our new stuff! The entire TSF team will be out at Surfaces in Las Vegas. Make sure to set an appointment with your territory manager so that they can show you all of our planned product launches for 2022. There is some great stuff coming and you will want to save space in your showroom for them! We hope to see you at one of the shows! If you aren’t able to make one, don’t worry. TSF has you covered and will be coming out this spring to show you the latest and greatest. We are excited to see what 2022 has planned for us and we are so incredibly thankful to get to work for you, our amazing retailers every day. Happy New Year!
