DALLAS, TX and LAS VEGAS, NV -- Sufaces and Las Vegas Market are excited to announce they are forming an extended strategic partnership to co-locate their events for 2013 and 2014 to provide their attendees an enhanced product sourcing, educational and networking experience.

Surfaces 2013, being held at Mandalay Bay Convention Center January 28 – 31, serves as the industry’s introduction of the newest product styles and selections that consumers will be demanding for the coming year. Every floor covering product, tool and technology will be featured on the show floor with daily complementary installation demonstrations where attendees can see these products in action.

Las Vegas Market, being held January 28 – February 1 at World Market Center Las Vegas campus, is an international home furnishings showcase that combines style, inspiration and productivity like no other market. Retailers and designers can shop product offerings from trendsetters in all home furnishings categories -- from furniture and mattress to home décor and gift. A "total marketplace" for today’s home furnishings professionals, Las Vegas Market features 1,000 world-class manufacturers and fresh new resources as well as educational, networking and hospitality events all week long.

“We are very excited about the strategic partnership and the benefits that it brings to our attendees” commented Dana Teague, Group Director, Surfaces. “Our dates coincided in 2011 and it proved to be an enormous success for both events. Due to scheduling conflicts in 2012 our dates were one week apart and we were met with disappointment from our attendees; therefore both parties agreed that it was in the best interest of our events to hold our dates concurrently and give our customers a convenient, one-stop-shopping opportunity, saving them both time and money.

In addition, the coinciding dates will give thousands of buyers the opportunity to engage in a wider range of education and networking events. Registration benefits will be available for those attendees who wish to participate in both events and a complimentary shuttle service will be provided between each venue.

“We are thrilled to partner with Surfaces again for the benefit of buyers and exhibitors at both venues. The synergies of our co-location add value to both of our customer bases -- allowing manufacturers exposure to new distribution channels,” said Dorothy Belshaw, President of Gift + Home Decor at International Market Centers. “And for retailers and designers looking for new and unique resources, Surfaces offers great depth in the floor coverings space while Las Vegas Market delivers a tremendous breadth of new products in furnishings, home décor and giftware. We’ve worked to make access to both events convenient and easy for buyers.”

As part of ongoing efforts to attract interior designers and due to the popularity of the program in 2012, Surfaces has expanded the Designer Day program to two days. The two days, January 29 and January 30, will be filled with innovative products, tours and education. This all day educational event is a must-attend for interior designers looking to get the latest trends and the newest products available for their clients.

Surfaces is co-located with StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas. For more information on Surfaces,visit www.Surfaces.com. Find us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter at @Surfaces_Show.
