The Surfaces 2013 Distributor Partners Program offered floor covering distributors the opportunity to register their retailers for free exhibits admission to the show.

The kits included point of purchase materials, printed buyer invitations and registration forms as well as an electronic code for use in email promotions.

"All Tile is very pleased to have won this big award," said Marc Haberman, Director of Marketing, All Tile. "Hanley Wood helped us to get there with their tools and ideas. We've made a big commitment to Surfaces every year and strongly encourage retailers to attend through a variety of campaigns. Additionally, we run a Retailer Travel Program and brought over 250 people on this year's trip. This kind of award goes a long way to help us continue to fund these activities."

"We have participated in the Distributor Partners Program every year that it has been offered and taken full advantage of its benefits," commented Clay Covington, Vice President of Sales, Butler Johnson. "We combine the program with our own distributor-based hotel promotion to make sure that we get as many retailers to Surfaces every year.
