Organizers of Surfaces 2006 said the annual meeting is on pace to be the largest gathering to date. More than 93 percent of the show floor has already been sold for the January 31 to February 3 event in Las Vegas and the number companies exhibiting is expected to surpass 1,000. "The industry seems to be more excited about Surfaces than ever," said Michelle Troop, Surfaces senior show director. "We have more exhibitors signed up than ever before at this time and attendees are registering and reserving hotel rooms faster than any previous show. It seems that everyone is ready for Surfaces and making their plans early!" For more information visit
