Southwest Flooring Market Pre-Show Checklist

As the year 2019 winds down, we’re ramping up for the Flooring Markets in January and February. Just three short weeks away, the Southwest Flooring Market is our largest show to date – which is why it’s being held at AT&T Stadium, one of the largest stadiums in the NFL. But before you leave for SWFM, here’s four things every attendee should do:

Double check travel plans

This might seem like common sense to some, but it’s easy to overlook in the midst of packing for a trip. Taking the time to double check your travel plans can save you time and make sure you get from point A to point B with as few hiccups as possible. For those who are flying, be sure to monitor your flight in the days leading up to your trip and be sure to check for delays on the day of.

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

Being located in Arlington, TX makes Southwest Flooring Market an easy event to find lodging near. We’ve partnered with Connections Housing to bring you discounted room rates which you can find here. In the event that these are no longer available, there are several other hotels located within a short drive of AT&T Stadium ranging from $65 per night all the way up to $200.

Check out the events calendar

As the biggest market to date, the 2020 Southwest Flooring Market is packed with exhibitors to visit and events to attend – so be sure to plan your days ahead of time! Check out our market schedule to get a feel for what events you might want to attend at SWFM. Also be sure to explore the exhibitor list to scope out which brands you can expect to see at market.

Make plans for fun

The Arlington and Dallas areas are bustling with fun things to do and see – so why not take advantage of your evenings and downtime by having some fun? Texas Live! is less than five minutes from AT&T Stadium and offers live music, bars, restaurants, clubs, shops, and more! Since you’ll already be in town on a Thursday and Friday, you might as well make a weekend trip out of it!
