The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) International Builders' Show (IBS) and the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) have added The International Surface Event (TISE) as an official show partner for Design & Construction Week (DCW), taking place Jan. 19 through 22, 2016 in Las Vegas. TISE joins the International Window Coverings Expo (IWCE) as a partner event.

"As a founding partner in DCW it is incredibly rewarding for us to see the continued growth of this must-attend event," said Bill Darcy, National Kitchen & Bath Association's (NKBA) CEO. "By joining forces to forge the DCW partnership, NKBA and NAHB have demonstrated that there is enormous strength in collaboration. Bringing so many industry representatives together in one location creates huge value for everyone involved." 

Last year, NAHB and NKBA launched DCW in Las Vegas as IBS and KBIS co-located for the first time, along with IWCE. Building upon that success, other organizations have been invited to join on as partners, with TISE becoming an official partner this year and again in 2016. TISE is made up of SURFACES, StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas and TileExpo.

In January, more than 3,700 exhibitors and 125,000 attendees participated in the five shows that made up the second DCW, according to show officials. IBS and KBIS have agreed to co-locate this annual event through at least 2020.

Registered attendees will have access to all tradeshows held during DCW. Registration for DCW shows open on Sept. 1.
