TISE 2023 Continues to Receive Industry Praise
A revitalized Mandalay Bay facility in Las Vegas, an impressive exhibit hall, education and event lineup, and a strong floor covering, stone and tile industry were evident at The International Surface Event (TISE).
“Just when you think the team at Informa can’t create a better show, they go and top themselves again,” says Scott Humphrey, president and CEO of the World Floor Covering Association. “From the training sessions to the installation competition, the comprehensive list of suppliers to the new set up to simplify the flow of attendees and allow maximum time for interaction, (it) was the best show in my 10 years as head of the WFCA.”
Comprised of three world-class trade shows — Surfaces, StonExpo and TileExpo — TISE experienced a 67 per cent increase in attendance over the already successful 2022 event, with double-digit increases again over events going as far back as 2019.
These results, in conjunction with the almost 600 exhibiting companies, produced an electric product sourcing and buying experience.
“The Ceramic Tile Education Foundation and National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) were both pleased with the traffic and quality of attendees at TISE 2023,” says NTCA executive director Bart Bettiga. “It is clear installers and contractors have realized the value of in-person networking and interaction with suppliers that happen at a show like TISE.”
In commemoration of this year’s event, TISE is inviting the entire industry community to together create a highlight reel in a new ‘Add Yours’ Instagram story featured in the TISE Instagram highlights.
