The International Surface Event will make its return to Las Vegas this year after all, taking place in-person at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, June 16-18. 

The Informa Markets team, organizers of the show, have reported that they have a medically-vetted and industry-wide set of health and safety measures known as the AllSecure Guidelines to guide them in ensuring health and safety are properly executed at their events, TISE included.  

That, in addition to Nevada’s new directive that requires trade show venues to certify through the state’s Department of Business and Industry that they will follow their health and safety requirements and protocols, and adhere to the prevention principles that have remained consistent (like maintaining safe physical distancing, wear face coverings and practice good hygiene), has set the stage for a healthy and safe in-person event. 

“TISE knows doing business in the flooring, stone, and tile industry requires experiencing the products first-hand and building relationships in a face-to-face environment," said Dana Hicks, show director. "We are confident in our ability to execute a safe event under Informa AllSecure." 

In accordance with AllSecure Guidelines, safety measures that will be implemented include mandatory face masks and temperature checks for all participants, non-contact registration, physical distancing, and enhanced cleaning. 

With health and safety a top priority, attendees can comfortably enjoy an event that will once again be lined with innovative products across categories, demos, education, networking and more.
