This is one centralized location. The content is here. The peers are here. The educators are here. The opportunities to socialize. Some of the best conversations happen in the hallways.

TISE gives you so much information not only in products but in application. It is important as designers and specifiers to learn as much about the product itself so that you do not design to fail, you design to succeed.

There are so many new products and demonstrations at The International Surface Event on the show floor. This is a great place to learn about new and developing technologies.

If you look around TISE, you've got every tool manufacturer. Many installers may be doing something right now that there is a tool that could make that job so much easier and they just don't know it exists. All the manufacturers who make products, adhesives, tools, supplies - they are all here.

I have been to Surfaces for the last 12 years and always a pleasure. The event is so organized and the staff is impeccable. The convention is under one roof so we do not have to go building to building
