FCICA, the flooring contractors association, announces that Convention 2013, will take place at the Bourbon Orleans Hotel in New Orleans, LA, February 24-27, 2013.  

The Bourbon Orleans Hotel is located on the corner of Orleans and Bourbon Streets directly behind Jackson Square.  “This will be a perfect site for our convention,” states Executive Vice President, Kimberly Oderkirk. It is in the heart of the French Quarter and one of the most unique and historic hotels in the area.  Knowing the group and the sites they like to be at, “They are going to love it!” she continues.  Although the group was there in 2001 and 2004, she believes the attendance will be the best yet.  “We are in a different hotel, have a new focus for our educational sessions to be geared to installation managers, and will have great networking events along with unique optional tours.”  
Additional highlights of the 2013 FCICA convention include attendees’ choice of a golf or swamp tour, welcoming reception, optimal member networking, table top (vendor & manufacturer) trade shows, committee and board of directors’ meetings, an off-site Manufacturer sponsored event, plantation tours, cooking tour, breakfast at Brennan’s with a Creole walking tour, as well as the Wednesday Katrina and Beyond all day event.
