Surfaces '06 sign-ups reach record numbers
Hanley Wood noted that returning companies are also generally seeking larger exhibit areas, while a growing number of new companies - up 12 percent from last year -- are signing up for the show.
Interest in the show is also being driven by efforts to build ancillary business beyond the floor. The show next year will once again include a Window/Wall Coverings Pavilion aimed at encouraging floor covering retailers to explore profit centers beyond flooring. The Installation Showcase, featuring live how-to demonstrations on the show floor, will also return.
