FloorCon will host its third-annual trade show for independent flooring store owners November 28-30, 2023, at the Omni Resort in Amelia Island, Florida, and the event will feature a keynote by football player Tim Tebow.

Some of the most successful retailers in North America will provide bootcamp-style training aimed to help dealers become more successful. Floorcon 2023 will also feature panel discussions from industry leaders, motivational speakers, networking events, a trade show, a charity golf tournament, technology and marketing training, and a closing party. 

Show organizers say one of the highlights of FloorCon will be the keynote address by football player Tim Tebow. Tebow's achievements in professional football, coupled with his inspirational journey, have made him a sought-after speaker and mentor. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear Tim Tebow's insights firsthand and gain knowledge about success, motivation, and leadership and how that can translate to success in the flooring industry. A handful of lucky show attendees will also get the chance to attend a meet-and-greet with Tebow.
