FloorTek Open


The American Floorcovering Alliance, host of the 2022 FloorTek Expo, invites all AFA members and FloorTek participants to our FloorTek Open Golf Tournament. Proceeds benefiting the AFA Floorcovering Industry Scholarship.

FloorTek Open Scholarship Fund

In effort to inspire and support students with interest in the flooring industry, AFA has created the FloorTek Open Scholarship Fund. One impressive student will receive a scholarship funded by this year’s FloorTek Open golf tournament, at the conclusion of our FloorTek Expo 2022 event. Students are invited to walk the floor of the expo to view products and industry innovations on display. 

Those who wish to apply for the scholarship award can create an original essay highlighting the product they found most innovative and why. Essays can be submitted through the form on our Future Connections webpage. The AFA board of directors will review all submissions and select a recipient for the award.
