The History of the Event

Our Mission

For over 30 years, The International Surface Event has
served the floor covering, stone, and tile industry as THE industry
marketplace. The TISE vision is to create a space where buyers and sellers
gather to purchase products, gain design inspiration, and develop their
businesses. We make this possible by carefully sourcing exhibiting brands,
crafting content and events, and developing show features that match the needs
of the industry. As the first event of the year, TISE is perfectly positioned
to offer product launches, critical first of the year buying opportunities, and
annual meetings.


We have a mission to be the world’s most respected floor
covering, stone, and tile industry marketplace. To do this, we have developed a
creative and innovative team who is dedicated to connecting with the industry
and is unified in driving towards the goals of the company. As the design team
for Informa Global Exhibitions, the world’s largest tradeshow event organizer,
we strive to grow memorable event brands that engage with the industry
verticals the event supports. We exist to create experiences were passion and
purpose come together.


TISE has a goal of shaping the surfaces industry for a sustainable future.
We know that sustainability is becoming increasingly important, and
running TISE gives us many opportunities to improve our impact
environmentally, socially and economically in the regions we operate. We want
to make TISE more responsible and play a role in helping the market improve
its own sustainability. We do this through connecting people with networks and
knowledge to help solve the big challenges in our industry.
