The Tile Contractors Association of America (TCAA) has joined the Ceramic Tile Distributors Association (CTDA), National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA), and the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) to jointly host the 2013 Total Solutions Plus (TSP) October 26-29 at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point in Bonita Springs, FL.

Initially launched in 2010, the annual event features a substantial seminar schedule, the individual meetings of participants like CTDA, NTCA, and TCNA, an increasingly popular tabletop show, and unparalleled opportunities for formal and informal networking.

TSP has benefited from the enthusiastic participation of distributors, manufacturers and contractors. The addition of TCAA adds a welcome dimension to programming and participation. In making the announcement, Chris Pattavina of TCAA noted, "We are confident that by joining this industry wide event, TCAA members will receive significant value from substantial technical and management education offerings on tap for Total Solutions Plus, plus opportunities to learn about the newest industry products and solutions from an expanded pool of vendors. With a solid program, great social events and a beautiful location, we believe

TCAA members will find Total Solutions Plus an informative and enjoyable event."
Rick Church, Executive Director of CTDA, said, "We are hoping that this will increase industry participation and attendance this year and create an even better TSP in the future."

Highlights of Total Solutions Plus 2013 include an insightful pair of keynote presentations. The 2013 opening keynote, "It's Showtime…and Life Isn’t a Dress Rehearsal," presented by Jon Petz, reminds attendees that "merely meeting expectations" is no longer enough. The closing keynote by Mark Scharenbroich is "Nice Bike – Hitting the road to make meaningful connections." Scharenbroich successfully mixes thousands of black leather, bandana wearing Harley Davidson riders, one 100th year anniversary celebration and a beige Ford Taurus to see the Nice Bike principle in action and build stronger and more meaningful connections in your personal and professional lives.

Additional information about Total Solutions Plus will be added to the website at   www.ctdahome.org/tsp as it becomes available.
