Members of the flooring community, including installers, retailers, contractors, distributors, inspectors and manufacturers, are invited to attend Floor Excellence 2007’s Spring Training educational event set for April 14 at the Mission Valley Hilton in San Diego. The annual event, hosted by the San Diego County Floor Covering Association (SDFCA), features three hands-on educational sessions: Wood – Tricks of Board Replacement; Vinyl – The Art of Seam Welding; Carpet – Pattern Tolerances Pattern Count and Pattern Alignment; and the Tool and Tile Expo.

“Our association takes installation seriously and we believe by making the latest information, techniques, products and tools available to the community that everyone wins. This event is focused on education for anyone that is involved in the installation of flooring products,” said Gary Bedrosian, event chairman and SDCFCA’s immediate past president.

According to the event’s guest speaker, Jim Walker, International Certified Floorcovering Installers Association (CFI) ceo, “This is one of the very few events focused on installation that is presented by a floor covering association.  This is an opportunity for the best installers to be at the top of their trade. Learning more is the only way to increase one’s earning potential.”

Manufacturers have also stepped up to the plate by donating many of the prizes that will be raffled off during the daylong event.
