TISE (The International Surface Event: SURFACES | StonExpo/Marmomac | TileExpo) announced that industry-specific education will again play a vital role at the upcoming event. TISE 2022 Education and training will be provided via four distinct platforms: TISE Seminars, TISE Live Main Stage, TISE Live Demo Stage, and TISE TV. In addition, associations and organizations will host their special training events. Also new will be the Women’s Leadership Conference.
TISE Seminars will feature 24 professionals providing 34 learning experiences for each of the TISE show brands. The curriculum covers a range of subjects including business basics, common SEO and social media mistakes, running an installation shop at peak performance, what’s a woman-owned business, defining your open retail positions and finding the suitable candidates, and how to survive an OSHA inspection. All seminars are one hour in length and are scheduled for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (January 31 – February 2, 2022). Purchase of a Day Pass of $60 (for members) and $80 (for non- members) allows access to any seminars for that day. Advance pricing expires December 10.
TISE Live Main Stage will provide free, high-level presentations concerning the big issues affecting the floor covering industry. Access to the show floor automatically includes free access to the Live Main Stage. Industry leaders from various fields will address a variety of major topics from a 30,000 ft. view. In 30-minute insightful “fireside chats,” lively panel discussions, or casual interview style with Q&A, topics will include the installation crisis, developing communities – both online and local, and retailers and installers working together.
TISE Live Demo Stage is free and open to all. All flooring types, adhesives, grouts, and coatings will be demonstrated. There are plans for 12 product demonstrations for all three days. Product demonstrations are 30 minutes in length.
TISE TV Broadcasting Network is an industry knowledge and training network that can be accessed on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. The TISE TV crew will be producing live podcasts and product episodes on the show floor, highlighting, and producing all the content for the TISE hybrid event, the TISE Live Virtual Event | Vegas Edition, sponsored by Mannington with Microban.
