This robust schedule of 12 free standards-based workshops will bring information, education, a chance to chat with your peers and industry experts – as well as delicious grub from local eateries, and a chance to win valuable prizes. 

These workshops are free afternoon or evening events, open to tile installers and contractors, as well as sales personnel and the A&D community – anyone who wants to learn more about standards-based installation practices.  They feature networking time, a catered meal, a chance to win useful and valuable prizes, and of course, priceless training from industry pros.
