Bostik, NWFA and MGM Resorts International to Stage the Ultimate Wood Flooring Design Competition

Bostik, Inc., has announced that another exciting contest has been added to its Bostik Signature Spaces series of design competitions: THE ART OF HARDWOOD FLOORING DESIGN CONTEST. This will be open to architects, designers and other wood flooring trade members/enthusiasts beginning May 10 of this year.

Scott Banda, Bostik’s Director of Marketing and Business Development stated, “Due to the widespread interest and amazing success of Design ‘N Gather, the international mosaic design competition which we co-sponsored last year and will have its Grand Prize Winner announced on May 4 of this year, we came up with the idea to have a somewhat similar event. However, having it featuring wood flooring as our key design element. Together with our partners, the National Wood Flooring Association, MGM Resorts International, Oshkosh Designs and Eagle Bay Hardwood Flooring, we are openly inviting those within ‘the wood sector’ to get their creative engines in motion… this time, creating their very own, one-of-a-kind masterpiece using wood flooring.”

The creative design of the Grand Prize Winner will be considered by MGM Resorts for installation in the lobby of a new steakhouse located in Las Vegas’ new Park MGM resort, currently under development by MGM Resorts International and Sydell Group. MGM Resorts’ Monte Carlo property is undergoing a nearly $500 million transformation over the next two years to become Park MGM and The NoMad Las Vegas.  Additionally, the winner will receive an amazing trip for two to Paris, France, courtesy of Bostik.

Banda, who with Joyen Vakil, Senior Vice President of Design & Development for MGM Resorts International, spearheaded this program, added, “The winning design will be chosen by an esteemed panel of judges, all with leading credentials in wood flooring, architectural design or both. Those who want to take part in the competition must register, which is a free and easy process. It can be done by simply clicking on this link:

“We are extremely excited about this contest for so many reasons!” exclaimed Michael Martin, President & CEO of the National Wood Flooring Association. “First of all, it’s great to be partnering with professional, high-profile people such as those at Bostik and MGM Resorts. And of course, we want to get our industry more involved with high-level architectural & design specification. Being an integral part of BOSTIK SIGNATURE SPACES – THE ART OF HARDWOOD FLOORING DESIGN CONTEST certainly sets our association in that direction.”

The hardwood floor ultimately installed will feature Bostik materials, including its much acclaimed Bostik’s Ultra-Set® SingleStep2, premium high-performance adhesive, moisture control and sound reduction membrane.

Vakil said, “Opening this fall, the new steakhouse will have a stunning design, complementing Las Vegas’ incredible culinary scene.”

“We want our contest registrants to get just as stoked about wood flooring design as those who participated in our previous competitions relative to their respective creations,” concluded Banda. “Without question, I can assure all registrants that our judges will be looking for something that takes wood design to the next level. After all, the winning design might be on display in the biggest showplace of them all: the Las Vegas strip!”
