The American Floorcovering Alliance (AFA), located in Dalton, Georgia, the 'Carpet Capital of the World,' was formed in 1979 as the Dalton Floorcovering Market Association to promote the floor covering industry. AFA, which took on its new name in March 2002, promotes the industry's products and services to the world, and educates members and others through seminars, press releases and trade shows. Membership is open to any company in the floor covering industry or in a floor covering-related industry. Financial support comes from membership dues and trade shows. According to the alliance, manufacturers from all sectors of the floor covering industry, as well as those who make and sell products, are making plans to attend the 2005 edition of FloorTek Expo.
