DALLAS, TX -- Now more than ever, The International Surface Event (TISE): SURFACES | StonExpo/Marmomac | TileExpo is dedicated to being the premiere floor covering, stone and tile product distribution network for the industry. In an effort to provide new opportunities for our communities to connect and grow, TISE has implemented a “lift and shift” planning program, which has a host of opportunities available to ensure all manufacturers, as well as industry buyers, have the maximum opportunity for product distribution, sourcing, networking and learning. TISE recently announced that it has expanded its product distribution network with some of these opportunities incorporating the Las Vegas landmark event (TISE Las Vegas), a new virtual experience (TISE Live Virtual Event) and an online broadcasting network (TISE TV).


TISE Las Vegas

The landmark TISE event, TISE Las Vegas, which normally occurs in January each year, will occur in June 2021, offering buyers the opportunity to be face-to-face with their business associates and their industry friends. See the newest products, have in-person conversations and enjoy a special buying experience. Plus, for the first time ever in TISE’s history, the event will be occurring in summer so visitors can take advantage of all of the fun seasonal and outdoor opportunities Las Vegas has to offer while at the event. Exciting new features are being developed for the Las Vegas event, so watch for updates at www.intlsurfaceevent.com.


TISE Live Virtual Event

Occurring this upcoming January over the original TISE event dates is the new TISE Live Virtual Event. This unique industry event will go live online with the future of floor covering, stone and tile surfaces for 2021, offering attendees the opportunity to connect and preview products while enjoying creative, immersive online experiences. Attend three packed days of product-focused live meetings, education, product pitch videos and unique, fun content and activities, taking place from January 26 to 28, 2021.



TISE has partnered with the Live Broadcast Network (LBN) to bring the industry a whole new floor covering, stone and tile shopping and product sourcing experience: the TISE TV Broadcasting Network, streaming all original product programming on Facebook. Episodes will also be available through Google TV, Youtube and LInkedIn. Plus, after airing, episodes are available on demand and sharable with customers. The first episodes from Mannington Mills and Kardean Design flooring are in production now and will be launching as weekly webisodes starting in December 2020.
