New York -- Consolidated Carpet, along with seventeen floor covering vendor partners, hosted hundreds of industry peers at ConsoCon 2019. The post-NeoCon summer sendoff was held at the Metropolitan West on September 19. ConsoCon was sparked from the desirable amount of interest in Post Neocon events across the country, and the lack thereof in the New York City marketplace. The purpose of the event was to showcase Neocon’s highlighted products while creating an exuberant networking environment for key members in the industry.
The boardwalk themed event included of open bars, a raw bar, DJ, photobooth, custom cornhole sets, themed food carts, and an array of passed hor d’oeuvres. The vendors partook in the theme and created engaging product vignettes using floor covering elements to resemble a boardwalk. Interactive experiences included virtual reality augmentation, tarot card readers, raffle giveaways and product demonstrations.
“ConsoCon certainly exceeded my expectations and it’s because of the team we put together in house to plan and execute it," said David T. Meberg, president and CEO of Consolidated Carpet. "Of course, we couldn’t have done this without our vendor partners, and we thank them profusely for their support and confidence in us to pull this off. There has already been overwhelming demand to do this again, so we look forward to making this an annual event for the NY metro flooring and design community.”
Over 300 constituents of the A&D community, real estate owners, and owners’ reps connected with mill reps, executives, and several members of Consolidated Carpet’s sales force. Event sponsors included Antron, Armstrong, Bentley Mills, Tarkett, Gerflor, Milliken, Mannington, J+J, Shaw, sur4ces, Mats Inc, Michael Halebian & Co, Spartan Surfaces, Mohawk, Interface, Forbo, & SalesMaster.
