TISE attendees can participate in the show's Booth Crawl Challenge by using the TISE mobile app.

The International Surface Event (TISE) Booth Crawl Challenge is a new show promotion that will make its debut at this year's expo, Jan. 20 to 23 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.

According to show organizers, the Booth Crawl Challenge will provide attendees with a fun way to explore the expansive show floor which covers 350,000 square feet in five halls, by visiting participating exhibitors and show features along the way. The first 500 attendees who complete the Booth Crawl Challenge using either a play card or the mobile app will receive a commemorative TISE T-shirt.

Attendees can participate by picking up a play card available at registration on Level 1, or by downloading the free TISE mobile app which is available for iPhone, Android and Blackberry users, and is sponsored by FCA Network. The TISE mobile app can be found by searching International Surface Event in the Apple App Store, Google Play, or Blackberry World.

Booth Crawl Challenge participants include the World Floor Covering Association (S6682), National Tile Contractors Association (B3825), the Marble Institute of America (B848), MoldingsOnline.com (B2361), Wagner Meters (B3366), Kane Carpets (S6741), Marmomacc Stone Academy (B964), Bellota (B2515), Houzz (B2839), Product Marketplace (Bayside Lobby, Level 1), Snap ‘N Share Studio (B2844) and American Express (B2308).

Attendees who visit all stops and get their card stamped or mobile app validated are required to drop off their completed card or show proof on completion on the mobile app in the show office on Level 3 to receive their commemorative T-shirt. 

“We have seen consistent increases in use of the TISE mobile app since introducing it in 2013. The industry demand is clearly there and the technology keeps getting more sophisticated and user-friendly,” said Amie Gilmore, director of TISE. "It’s a functional tool for maximizing the show floor experience—from searching for exhibitor locations on the show floor, to mapping the quickest route to get from one point to another and helping to easily schedule time at the show—it’s an additional service we can offer attendees to make their show experience even more productive."

In addition to the Booth Crawl Challenge, other mobile app features include a calendar, show hours, floor plan, easy access to the master education schedule including the schedule of show floor tours and demos taking place each day, events schedule and quick connection to social media accounts. Additionally, users can access their hotel reservations and information on local restaurants, entertainment and attractions in Las Vegas.
