Southeast Flooring Markets Pre-Show Checklist

It’s hard to believe, but there’s less than one month until the Southeast Flooring Markets in Atlanta, Georgia. At the show, attendees can expect to see more than 50 exhibitors, participate in product demos, and attend LIVE! Stage sessions for live product demonstrations and discussions about new industry trends with other buyers and exhibitors. But before you head out to attend SEFM, there’s a few things you should do:

Double check transportation plans

It might seem obvious to some, but it’s always a good idea to plan out your transportation in advance so you know what to expect when it comes time to go. If you’re flying, this means checking the status of your flight in the days leading up to your departure, and checking for delays on the day of. The last thing you want is to be grounded when you should be heading to SEFM!

For those driving, it’s a good idea to check the general route that you’ll be traveling to make sure that there are no major closures. Also, be sure to pay close attention to the weather on the day of your drive so you can anticipate and account for poor driving conditions.

Make arrangements for a place to stay

This is another one that might seem obvious to some, but it’s important nonetheless! There are special discounted room rates available for SEFM attendees available at Wyndham Atlanta Galleria. If that’s not what you’re looking for, there are several options for hotels near The Cobb Galleria Centre.

If hotels aren’t your thing but you need a place to stay, there are other options including Airbnb or VRBO. These are great options because you can have access to a full house or apartment, giving you a much more relaxed stay.
