DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR to host NA distributor delegation

DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR will organise its first North American distributor delegation during the trade show which takes place in March 22-24, 2016 in Shanghai, China.

A DOMOTEX press release informed that delegates will meet with peers from China and Asia, preview new products and technologies, tour manufacturing sites and learn about conducting business with Asian partners.

The delegation was assembled with the cooperation of the Floor Covering Institute LLC, Floor Covering Weekly and The North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD).

Pre-arranged visits to production facilities of leading flooring manufacturers located near Shanghai will give delegates an important introduction to China's manufacturing and business practices.

“Chinese manufacturers make fabulous products at excellent values, but business is conducted in a different manner in Asia,” Jim Gould, president of the Floor Covering Institute said.

“It is important to see the facilities, meet the people, clarify expectations and avoid misunderstandings as costly mistakes can be made if the details are not talked thoroughly to achieve a true meeting of the minds,” he added.

Gould strongly recommended that all attendees take an extra day or two to visit manufacturers while in China during DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR 2016.

Some delegates include Hoy Lanning, senior VP at JJ Haines, Steve Rosenthal, senior VP of sales and marketing at All Tile, Theodore Gillgrist, VP purchasing, William M. Bird & Co and Michael Martin, CEO, National Wood Flooring Association.

“I am interested to see Asian manufacturing facilities and the inspection processes while searching for new product opportunities,” Hoy Lanning also said. (AR)
