FCNEWS GUIDE TO NEOCON
Although NeoCon will not take place this year, you can still get your new flooring introductions in front of the A&D community. Through our partnership with NeoCon, FCNews will provide flooring manufacturers with exposure to this audience in several new ways.
First, through our 2020 FCNews Guide to NeoCon—a printed supplement to Floor Covering News that contains editorial content relevant to the A&D community while also featuring a full page of new products from NeoCon exhibitors that will accompany each full-page advertisement.
Next, the Guide will be accessible on the FCNews website—which recently underwent a redesign and now reaches more than 22,000 unique visitors a month—as well as promoted on our social media platforms and through our weekly FCNewsletter. The FCNews website will also host a new special section entitled “NeoConnect 2020” on its homepage that offers special opportunities to our advertisers.
NeoCon will also promote the Guide to its extensive attendee community through its website and consistent outreach.
