The relationships we've made and created just in the past year have been essential to my growth. And, we've had exponential growth this past year, and it all really started a year ago at SURFACES.

The ‘megalopolis’ of all things surfaces. Anything you can think of from flooring to tile, wall treatments to countertops, technological innovations… this is the place where the trends aren’t being followed, they are being set.

Surfaces provides a unique opportunity to meet with clients and customers in person. Through my annual attendance, I have built face to face relationships that have lasted throughout my career in the flooring industry.

You get to connect with a variety of different people, whether they are our suppliers or our customers, or designers. It is a great opportunity to do networking.

Best exhibition in the world by far, for the flooring industry worldwide.

This is the one event I never miss!  To build better relationships with my Manufactures and scout out the newest and coolest, starts the year off on the right foot.

I think it's a great place to see all of the industry....installation, flooring, technology, and PEOPLE & IDEAS.
