Mid-Year Meeting 2020

FCICA:  Connecting the Flooring Community

Event Info


FCICA Mid-Year Meeting 2020: Connecting the Flooring Community was a great success – over 400 registrants attended 5 educational sessions, 10 associate presentations, 3 happy hours and networked with one another via the event app. While an in person meeting is ideal, FCICA’s first virtual venture proved to be an educational, informative and accessible meeting option.

Flooring industry professionals, premier commercial flooring contractors, distributors, manufacturers and consultants were able to connect virtually - at this 2 day Mid-Year Meeting. 

FCICA is grateful to the presenters, attendees, silent auction contributors and those who made financial donations towards this free industry event. FCICA appreciates your generous support.
