As the summer winds down, one of the busiest times of the year approaches for us here at TILE. Traveling season. A time when we are able to get out of the office and explore all of the new products and standards that have been developed over the last year, and speak with different manufacturers as to why they came to be. We’re excited to see what some of the upcoming tradeshows have to offer, such as Cersaie in Bologna, Italy, later this month and Total Solutions Plus in Grapevine, TX, at the end of October. Stay posted for the official reviews of these key industry events, which will be featured in the October and November/December editions.
In the meantime, we’ve been focusing on continuing to provide our readers with pertinent information that is both educational and interesting. By introducing the “Contractor Spotlight” this year, we’ve been able to gain a better perspective about how the tile industry has evolved over the years, but we are always eager to learn more.
