The International Surface Event (TISE)––the largest floor covering show in North America––happens this week in Las Vegas. Here’s what to expect.

TISE runs from Jan. 28–30 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. Educational sessions are scheduled for Jan. 27–30. The event includes three simultaneous shows: Surfaces, StoneExpo and TileExpo. The show floor spans more than 400,000 square feet.

Nearly 200 TISE exhibitors this year have connections to the hardwood flooring industry. To locate them easily at the show, swing by the Wood Floor Business booth––6571—and pick up a 2020 Surfaces Pocket Guide, or pick up a copy in the publication bins. The Pocket Guide lists all the wood flooring exhibitors’ booth numbers and includes a fold-out map of the show floor, where each relevant company is highlighted.

The digital version of the Pocket Guide can be found here, and the show floor map can be found here.

You can find a full schedule of TISE workshops and seminars on its website (we highlighted the wood flooring-related ones in our December/January issue here).

The weather in Vegas is predicted to be mostly sunny during the week of the show, with highs in the upper 60s and lows in the mid-40s.
