“With the focus on the importance of installation in the industry, we knew this was the perfect timing to bring back the competition. We are honored to highlight the hard working community of installers at The International Surface Event,” says Amie Gilmore, CEM, Director of TISE, “and can’t wait for the exciting LIVE challenge on the show floor. It is our goal that this promotion both showcase the incredible work happening in the industry now while also bringing national exposure to the need for more trained professionals in this career segment.”
The industry is invited to watch the nine selected finalists live right on the show floor as they show off their talent and skills in a set of product installation challenges, each in their own pre-constructed pod. The winner of the live installation contest in Las Vegas will be crowned The National Installer of the Year and receive a prize package.
