Flooring Expo to add area rug exhibitors
March 28, 2002,
Orlando, FL — For the first time in its 15-year history, the International Flooring Exposition (IFE), which will take place here under the mantle "Coverings" May 6 to 9, is adding area rugs to its existing roster of hard flooring exhibitors.
And helping to christen the re-focused event is a group of major rug suppliers familiar to the home textiles industry — Feizy Rugs, Asia Minor, Zolvamari, Noonoo Rugs and Masterlooms.
"IFE includes all other flooring materials. IFE obviously includes area rugs. There is an actual synergism between tile and stone and area rugs. But IFE also includes carpet, vinyl, etc. The concept is to expand the base to create a major all-industry East coast flooring event. We believe this is good for everyone."
