Flooring Show hailed ‘resounding success’
THERE were smiles all round as exhibitors packed up after the 2015 Flooring Show in Harrogate, described by the organising as buzzing for all three days. This year’s Flooring Show, seen as one of the most successful in years, boasted more exhibitors (over 175 from 16 countries) and a 9% rise in visitor numbers.
