Arley Wholesale, Inc. -- a family-owned, third generation wholesale supplier of ceramic, porcelain, stone, glass mosaic tiles and installation materials -- hosted its Tenth Annual Arley Classic Tile & Stone Exposition from June 10 - 12, 2012. The two-day golf tournament, held at the Glen Oak Country Club in Clark’s Summit, PA, was capped off by the Arley Wholesale Tile & Stone Exposition. The Expo took place at the Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel in Scranton, PA.
Arley Tile & Stone Exposition included "Candy Land," which exhibited Arley's unique "Eye Candy" line.
Steve Brody, co-owner of Atlas Tile in Weathersfield, CT, has attended the Arley Classic Tile & Stone Exposition every year for the past decade. He stated, “We attend Arley’s event because it’s great to meet with other retailers across the country and share ideas. We know that the products exhibited are priced right and readily available. But in particular, we want to support the professionals at Arley with the same loyalty that they have always extended to us.”
Mauricio Schiebe of Global Porcelain Solutions, a major supplier to Arley said, “When it comes to the tile and stone distributors, there are few companies worldwide that do it better than Arley. The firm recognizes how to have fun, build total enthusiasm and most importantly for companies like mine, knows how to make its customers money with its suppliers' products and their enhanced distribution system.”
The event finished up Tuesday with the trade show. With 30-plus leading tile and stone manufacturers on-site presenting over 100 individually labeled installed floorboards, over 250 concept boards, 70 grouted panel sets, multiple vignettes and much more, Arley’s event has become a time and cost-saving alternative to national expositions.
Scott Levy, Executive Vice President of Operations for Arley Wholesale, has witnessed the annual event grow each year and in doing so, continue to add benefits to those who attend. “Our annual event is a good time for all… and we know that. We also know that if we don’t help our customers become more successful, if we don’t give them highly researched, great tile and stone materials and back up those products with strong merchandising tools and marketing ideas, we all lose. We cannot allow that to happen. That’s why our annual event offers them so many benefits and strategic ways to enhance their sales.”
