Jon Logue, co-CEO of Alliance Flooring, said the Nashville site offers several benefits. "One reason we selected Nashville was because of its close proximity to many of our suppliers located in and around Dalton," he said. "And since many of our members work our convention into their vacation, we felt Nashville offered great entertainment and attractions."
