Surfaces 2008 is set to include the most new products in the show’s history. That is the consensus of show organizers based on interest in a New Product Preview brochure. Offering a sneak peak of the newest designs and trends from exhibiting manufacturers, the brochure is slated to feature more than 200 new products, which represents “a 17 percent increase [in participation] over 2007 and a 14 percent increase over 2006.”

“Exhibitors understand the need to continue to roll out innovative products in order to meet the demands of the customer,” said Dana Teague, show director for Surfaces. “The number of new product entries in the brochure is indicative of their commitment to doing that.”

Many manufacturers featured in the brochure are also set to roll out their latest products at the New Product Pavilion. Sponsored by National Floor Trends, Floor Covering InstallerandTILE Magazine,the pavilion will give show goers a first look at new products outside of the standard exhibit format. NFT and its sister magazines are also sponsoring two other exhibit areas debuting at the show – the Decorative Concrete and Hand-Crafted Tile pavilions.

Surfaces is slated for Jan. 30 through Feb. 1 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas. For more information, call (800) 547-3477 or (972) 536-6400, or visit
