SURFACES Records Double Digit Growth


SURFACES saw a 10 percent increase in attendance from 2011, which is the largest attendance number since 2008. Thousands of serious floor covering professionals packed both floors of the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas January 24-26 prepared to see the largest and best selection in floor covering products and design trends to hit the market. They got what they were looking for as every square foot of the show floor was overflowing with the products, tools and technologies attendees need for their business success. “2012 is going to be defined as a turning point for SURFACES and hopefully for the industry as a whole,” commented Amie Gilmore, Show Manager, SURFACES. “Leading up to the show the news headlines were becoming more and more positive and you could definitely see and feel that optimism and energy on the show floor.  Everywhere we went we would hear conversations about how great the show was going.”
