Day 4 TSP: Contract negotiation, distributor forum, happy hour – and TSP 2021 reveal!

Today’s TSP offered an in-depth look at Contract Negotiation – Understanding Scope & Liabilities Relating to COVID 19. Superior Tile & Stone’s Tommy Conner talked about force majeure, and the importance of giving notice to lay the groundwork for filing a claim. Concurrently, Rick Church from CTDA, Rudy Llerena, D&B Tile Distributors, Heidi Martin of United Tile and Steve Vogel of Conestoga Tile led a distributor forum that addressed pressing industry issues.

Immediately afterwards, attendees had a chance to hobnob during a virtual happy hour. LATICRETE, Coverings, and Rubi each hosted a Zoom breakout room where folks could gather and network. Before attendees dispersed to these rooms, CTDA’s Rick Church showed a video that introduced the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront in Jacksonville, Fla., as the site of the 2021 Total Solutions Plus, from October 24-27,2021.
