SURFACES and the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) have partnered to create a dedicated hardwood flooring pavilion to be introduced at the 2013 show being held January 29-31 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV.

The brand new NWFA Pavilion will host several hardwood flooring manufacturers and suppliers, along with the NWFA and Hardwood Floors magazine networking lounge, where members and prospective members can network and browse through the products on display.

“Surfaces and NWFA have been close partners for several years working together to develop ideas on how to continue to bring value to the show,” says Amie Gilmore, Associate Director, Surfaces. “This pavilion is a huge step in solidifying that partnership by creating an added layer of value to our both our exhibitors and attendees.”

The NWFA Pavilion is located in Bayside Exhibit Hall on Level One of the Mandalay Bay Exhibit Hall in a high traffic area situated on a main aisle and in close proximity to the S² Theater. Exhibitors who participate in the NWFA Pavilion will receive as part of their booth package a customizable turn-key display with brochure holder as well as the added benefits of displaying their products within the NWFA sponsored pavilion.

Companies also have the opportunity to utilize the S² Theater to demonstrate the installation of their products.

“NWFA and Hardwood Floors traditionally have exceptional booth traffic that our pavilion exhibitors and member attendees can now capitalize on,” says NWFA President & CEO Michael Martin. “By providing a reduced cost to exhibit, a centralized place to network, and education through a demo stage, our exhibitors and members receive additional value by attending Surfaces. In addition, NWFA can expand the awareness of wood flooring throughout the flooring industry with a larger presence that simply can’t be missed on the show floor.”
