While walking through the bustling exhibit hall at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV, during The International Surface Event (TISE), it was evident business is picking up for members of the tile industry. Momentum continued throughout the three-day exhibition, which was held from January 18 to 20, 2017. Busy booths, crowded aisles and long lines at the concession stands were all positive signs that good things are in store for the coming year.
TISE comprises Surfaces, StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas and TileExpo — making it North America’s largest floorcovering, stone and tile industry event. The exhibition, which joined buyers and sellers from around the globe, featured approximately 700 exhibiting companies and a display of more than 1,000 products.
