National Floor Trends,along with sister magazinesFloor Covering InstallerandTILE Magazine,will be the exclusive sponsors of three new exhibit pavilions at Surfaces 2008. These include the New Product Pavilion, as well as areas devoted to decorative concrete and hand-crafted tile. The New Product Pavilion, which will showcase the latest products and services from a variety of manufacturers, will be situated near one of the entrances to maximize exposure.

According to Karen Romano, sales manager for Surfaces, the specialty products pavilions are designed to help attendees sort out the latest decorative concrete and hand-crafted tile products. “These new specialty products are the hottest trends in floor covering and we felt it was important to give them a dedicated area on the show floor that differentiates them from the thousands of other products attendees will see at the show,” she said.

Organizers also noted that the show set for Jan. 30 to Feb. 1 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas is expected to boast more exhibit space that previous shows. Last year’s meeting drew 38,246 show goers and 1,065 exhibiting companies. For more information call (800) 547-3477 or (972) 536-6400 or visit
