Novalis Innovative Flooring was honored at Guangzhou Design Week in Guangzhou with the Kapok Award for its AVA commercial luxury vinyl flooring.

For nine years, Guangzhou Design Week has been the annual B2B Expo influencing over one million building professionals across China and is known every year as the largest annual commercial activity in the Chinese design industry, according to show organizers.

“We wanted an attention-getting display for our new AVA product,” said John Wu, president and CEO of Novalis. “Our designers certainly achieved that with a skateboard course right in our booth. Hundreds of visitors gathered to watch skateboard athletes showcase the beauty and demonstrate the durability of AVA. Both AVA SNSE, a bold color tile line aimed at the education and healthcare markets and AVA DSGN, planks for the retail and hospitality sectors, were used to create the course.”
