The World Floor Covering Association (WFCA) announced its lineup of guest speakers and in-booth event details for TISE 2022, themed “Reset. Reconnect. Renew.” 

Through its "Reset, Reconnect, Renew" theme, WFCA aims to foster togetherness by focusing on positive change, reminding everyone to pause and reset goals, and reconnect to our dreams, our staff, our customers, and our partners.

Across the three-day event in WFCA’s booth #2061, attendees can participate in ‘fireside chats’ with WFCA leadership and guests to network, learn, and be inspired. Between sessions, participants will have the opportunity to engage directly with the speakers and their peers.

"WFCA’s theme affirms the current optimistic belief that the time is now to “Reset, Reconnect, and Renew," said Freida Staten, VP Marketing, Communications & Membership. "Circumstances over the last few years have proven that connectivity is more important than ever and that we are stronger together. TISE is a place where attendees have an opportunity to reset perspectives, learn from one another, and where new relationships are formed. This year’s agenda will provide content that will challenge you to hit the reset button and make 2022 your year.”
