CHICAGO--The National Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD) recently created the concept for the International Flooring Exposition (IFE), a new trade show to serve the flooring industry.

The show will run in collaboration with the International Tile and Stone Exposition (ITSE) under the Coverings mark. The NAFCD will hold the first IFE on May 6 – 9, 2002 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

The NAFCD Board of Directors recently reached an agreement with ITSE owners to have its event, IFE, run concurrently with the well-established trade exposition.
