Regional flooring buying markets are underway and retailers and buyers across the country are checking in locally with manufacturers and distributors to see their newest products, equipment, technology and techniques. The Southeast Flooring Market, held in Atlanta, Jan. 8 and 9 at the Cobb Galleria Centre, saw upwards of 1,000 attendees from within a 300 mile radius. Busy, yet manageable booths and an optimistic outlook for 2019 among both exhibitors and attendees made for a positive and energetic market. “Everyone is so optimistic,” said show organizer Lori Kisner. “It helps that we do our shows the first of the year because everyone is so gung-ho.”
