The deadline for The International Surface Event (TISE) 2018 call for presentations is approaching, March 24, 2017. TISE 2018 will take place January 29-February 1, 2018, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. TISE is seeking committed speakers who are experts in their field who want to share their knowledge in an active setting during the event. Submitted proposals should be collaborative and provide an interactive learning environment across a variety of disciplines to discuss, debate, and nurture the sharing of ideas.

“Attendees are seeking more engagement, in-depth, and practical programs from TISE education each year,” said Carol Wilkins, senior conference manager. “We are looking for presentations that cover all our key categories and increases audience engagement before, during, and even after the event. The evaluation results reflect that growing demand, and our aim is to continually build more engagement into our program.”

The primary audience of the education program includes retailers, distributors, designers, architects, installers, contractors, fabricators, and other industry professionals. TISE is seeking sessions focused on targeted educational tracks that speak to these audience segments for both the residential and commercial sector and that cover a wide range of topics from trends, forecasting, business, and marketing to expanding technical skills and proficiency.
