Milliken & Company is the latest manufacturer in a long list of key industry players contracted to exhibit at DOMOTEX USA. “We believe DOMOTEX USA will provide a great North American platform for floor covering manufacturers such as Milliken to present products and conduct business with a large portion of our customer base in an exciting new venue,” said Scott Reams, director of residential, Milliken Floor Covering.

“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.
