Each year, TILE Magazine is afforded opportunities to travel to different tradeshows all over the world. Wherever we go, one thing remains the same: the tile industry never ceases to amaze us. Nationally and internationally, trends continue to grow and thrive. They even manage to intertwine, concocting innovative designs and ideas, which is a neat thing to see.
A couple of months ago, I attended The International Surface Event (TISE) in Las Vegas, NV, which is an annual tradition for our teams here at BNP Media. Alike last year, this edition showed serious signs of growth, from the jam-packed hallways to the bustling booths. Hosted at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, TISE welcomed around 2,000 visitors and 800 exhibitors, who introduced an array of new products that were on display everywhere you turned. It was good to see that things are prospering, especially after speaking with show organizers and attendees.
