TISE 2019 Releases Post Show Report

Posted on 13 March 2019 by cradmin

The International Surface Event (TISE): SURFACES | StonExpo/Marmomac |TileExpo took place in Las Vegas this January at the Mandalay Bay. The event experienced another year of power‐house industry attendance, exhibits, product displays and education. Attendees came from 77 countries and from every corner of North America to buy, source, network, and discover what is new, needed, and up‐and‐coming for their businesses.

More than 800 brands, 135 new to the exhibition floor, presented their products in over one million square feet of exhibits, product showrooms, features and education. Each showroom space offered beautiful displays, unique demonstrations, and thousands of products and services for the industry to discover.

TISE exhibiting brands offered products from every aspect of residential and commercial sectors of the flooring, tile, and stone industry including hard goods, soft goods, equipment, tools, supplies and services, and so much more. This year’s market was a discovery for all the senses across the entire exhibit hall.

The benefit of attending live markets is to experience the products first‐hand and to meet directly with the key people who produce them. Exhibiting brands at TISE 2019 ensured the industry could experience their products directly in live demonstrations within their exhibit spaces, as well as, on the Product Demo Stage at The Design + Installation Showcase Hub (The DISH), right on the show floor. MAPEI Corporation and USG offered daily demonstrations each hour covering topics from shower and floor prep to installing floors in a flash.

Many industry veterans attend TISE knowing exactly what they are searching for. Others attend for the first time desiring to see everything the industry has to offer. Both groups leave the event having learned or seen something new and unexpected because the vast TISE market is a place of discovery and inspiration. Iconic brands launch new product lines while new companies move into the marketplace presenting exciting innovation for the industry.

TISE launched a brand‐new education program called CONVERGE at this year’s event. Industry leaders covered the hard‐hitting, on‐point topics such as The 411 on 4:20: Medical Marijuana and the Work Place and What to Expect in Washington DC After the 2018 Elections, technically crucial topics such as Moisture Mitigation Roundtable and The Ways of Water: Critical Considerations for Shower Construction, and design‐centric, forecasting sessions such as Color Vibes: A Journey Through Color and Trends and The Power of 5: The 5 Hottest Trends in Flooring & The 5 Types of People Buying Them. The program was led by experts from inside the industry with conversation by veterans, Jon Namba, Lisbeth Calandrino, and Katie Ford to name a few, as well as experts outside the industry such as Attorney Jeff King and social media specialist Shannon Vogel. Each influencer brought their own unique perspectives and vault of information to provide value to each CONVERGE attendee. Though in its first year, TISE plans to grow, adjust, and improve the program going forward to ensure it meets the education needs of the industry.
