"In addition to the strong demand for our show, we also are thrilled to have assembled a highly engaged and active advisory board for

Domotex USA's launch," added Busse. "Our advisory board recently convened for its first meeting in Dalton, Georgia, and we came away with great ideas to solidify content for the educational programs, to offer behind-the-scenes factory tours in the area and to continue to garner outstanding industry support as we celebrate Domotex USA as America's home for flooring."

"Locating the event in Atlanta in the heart of the flooring industry is a real advantage for the North American marketplace," said Daniel K. Frierson, chairman and CEO of The Dixie Group. "We will utilize the new show to not only visit with our customers but also to bring them to our manufacturing facility in Dalton, Georgia for additional events surrounding Domotex USA."
