NFTsenior editor Howard Olansky moderated The Greater New York Floor Coverers Association’s recent “Moisture in Concrete” panel discussion at the Helmsley Hotel in New York City.

The seminar focused on moisture intrusion in concrete subflooring and discussed why it is such a critical factor in the installation of soft-surface flooring. The program marked the first time that a large group of floor covering retailers/contractors, manufacturers, distributors, and architects/specifiers was brought together -- at the same time in one place -- to dissect the issue.

Olansky remarked that the event was the most exciting and productive industry educational meeting for which he has served as moderator.
