Happy Feet International, a producer of luxury vinyl plank and tile headquartered in Chattanooga, is hosting its second annual Vegas themed expo. The company took a gamble by initiating the event in response to the COVID-19 pandemic when they were unable to travel to the Las Vegas trade shows. CEO Casey Johnson’s son,  CJ coined the name Chattavegas for the inaugural event.

 

“During the pandemic many of the top flooring expos in Las Vegas, which are crucial to how our industry does business, were postponed,” said Mr.

Johnson. “We came up with the idea to bring old-time Vegas to Chattanooga, and it ended up being a win for our business.”

 

Last year more than 200 guests from all over the United States attended Chattavegas, and Happy Feet is expecting an even bigger turnout with this year’s event being expanded to two days. Chattavegas 2.0 is hosted at the Happy Feet International headquarters at 200 N. Holly St., Chattanooga, Tennessee 37404.

 

The main event will be held on Thursday, June 16, from 12 to 8 p.m. It will include casino games such as craps, poker and slot machines as well as a range of prizes, a seated lunch and dinner and an open bar.

 

In addition, there will be exclusive deals only available at Chattavegas 2.0. The showroom will give a first peek at Happy Feet’s newest products within the Black Label Collection, Made in the USA Collection, new trims and more.

 

The second day, Friday, June 17, is an exclusive experience featuring a round of golf or a spa treatment. Customers who pre-purchase five or more pallets of Pinnacle, Happy Feet’s latest premium luxury vinyl flooring, are eligible to attend the second day.

 

Happy Feet is partnering with The Westin Chattanooga, the host hotel for Chattavegas 2.0 accommodations. Current and new customers are eligible to register for the event, and new customers must sign up for an account to attend.

A new addition to Happy Feet’s Black Label Collection, Pinnacle raises the bar for LVP-style with a dozen stunning colorways, ZeroMark® Stain Resistance, a 28-mil wear layer, and an ultra-quiet 2mm acoustical cushion. Customers who pre-purchase five or more pallets of Pinnacle are eligible for Day 2 of Chattavegas 2.0, complete with a round of golf or a spa treatment.

22 Questions And Concerns About A New $79.5 Million Lookouts Stadium

The proposal for the Lookouts stadium brings forth several questions that I have not gotten good answers yet from anyone. 1. If the 10 acres Gary Chazen is donating is worth $10,000,000, why doesn’t he and his partners just sell the 140 acres and go to the bank with over $100,000,000? 2.
