StonExpo Joined By 3rd Show, Expands To Twice Annually

Posted on 23 October 2013 by cradmin

Hanley Wood announced that a new, third show, will join with its combined StonExpo and Surfaces event in January, and that it is launching a second StonExpo show on the East Coast in October. The new third leg of the event, TileExpo, will be housed alongside of the two previous shows in a mega trade show event Hanley Wood is calling “The International Surface Event.” Additionally, the show will be held twice in 2014 (and presumably beyond) with the second instance October 19 to 22  in the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami Beach, Fla., and monikered as “The International Surface Event East.”

“We are thrilled to launch these two events. TileExpo will be the perfect complement to SURFACES and StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas,” said Dana Teague, Vice President of Hanley Wood Exhibitions. “Launching The International Surface Event East diversifies our geographic and market segment reach, and creates new opportunities for our audiences to engage with the industry.”

According to a release by the company, TileExpo will have an array of  innovative, trend-setting and distinctive tile products. It will offer an education program that includes hands-on demonstrations and on-floor education.

Industry trade groups seemed to have favorable reaction to the second, eastern, event. “The International Surface Event East will fill a void that has been missing,” said Jim Hieb, executive vice president and CEO of The Marble Institute of America (MIA). “We are eager to see all of our members and industry colleagues in Miami Beach.”

Matt Lansing, executive director of the Stone Fabricators Alliance (SFA) said, “The SFA is very pleased with Hanley Wood’s decision to launch The International Surface Event East. We believe in a Fall show that allows businesses to take advantage of annual fiscal tax opportunities, which are beneficial to suppliers and customers alike. We look forward to this expansion and are confident that this show will be appreciated and embraced by all involved.”
