On January 3-4, 2018, top flooring industry manufacturers, retailers and buyers from across the southeastern US will gather at Atlanta’s Cobb Galleria Centre for the 2018 Southeast Flooring Market (SFM).

Formerly known as the Cobb Flooring Show, the market has been the hub for the region’s flooring industry for more than a decade, providing attendees with early access to new products and emerging trends, as well as ample opportunities for networking. The two-day market is the industry’s premier event for fostering connections and encouraging business growth across the region.

The 2018 market, produced by Market Maker Events, will include an additional exhibition hall to meet the growing demands of buyers, retailers and manufacturers in the southeast. “Business is strong in the region – last year, we saw nearly 25 percent growth in attendance over the previous year, and we had attendees from across 11 states,” says Barbara Stroup, Managing Partner at Market Maker Events. “The 2017 show sold out, so this year we’re expanding to meet the needs of the industry.”
