Las Vegas Market and The International Surface Event announced today a partnership for the upcoming markets in January 2020. The collaborative effort provides buyers with free and continuous shuttle service between the two market’s exhibit venues – the World Market Center Las Vegas and the Mandalay Bay Convention Center – on Tuesday, Jan. 28, and Wednesday, Jan. 29, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., as well as free access to both events. Qualified registrations are free, although attendees will be required to register separately for each show.
“Las Vegas Market is delighted to partner with The International Surface Event and its three major floor coverings tradeshows to provide marketgoers with new shopping opportunities within related product categories,” said Dorothy Belshaw, Executive Vice President, Chief Marketing and Digital Officer for International Market Centers. “This collaboration will bring more visitors to Las Vegas Market and provide our tenants with new potential sources of business, new channels of retail distribution and new connections with buyers.”
Each January, the industry from around the globe flocks to Las Vegas for market at The International Surface Event (TISE): SURFACES | StonExpo/Marmomac | TileExpo, the largest North American floor covering, stone, and tile industry event. Thousands of surface material brands are presented in over 800 exhibit spaces offering their newest product launches, expanded product lines, equipment innovations, tools, and technology, the latest in installation techniques and more.
“TISE’s vision is to create a space where buyers and sellers gather to purchase products, gain design inspiration and develop their businesses. The Las Vegas Market expands this opportunity for retailers and designers through this collaboration,” said Dana Hicks, Show Director, The International Surface Event. “TISE and LVM are two crucial events for retail and design industry professionals. This opportunity to extend their buying and sourcing possibilities concurrently in Las Vegas, while facilitating cross shopping by buyers in related home product categories, adds convenience and saves valuable time. We look forward to hosting Las Vegas Market attendees at TISE 2020.”
Winter 2020 Las Vegas Market runs Jan. 26 – 30, 2020, at World Market Center Las Vegas, and The International Surface Event runs Jan. 27 - 30, 2020, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
