A total of 39,183 visitors from 69 companies attended Surfaces 2001


Once again, hands-on demonstrations of stone maintenance products were part of the event.
Taking place from January 31 to February 2 in Las Vegas, NV, Surfaces 2001 was the largest event to date, with a total attendance of 39,183 -- up 13% from Surfaces 2000. The show, which was held at the Sands Expo & Convention Center, also saw a strong international presence, with attendees coming from 69 countries. The 898 exhibiting companies (a 15% increase over last year) showcased hard and soft surface products at the show across 516,553 net square feet of exhibit space.

Although the event showcases on a broad range of flooring and wall covering materials, the presence of natural stone and related products was increased in 2001. According to show organizers, the show experienced a 200% increase in companies showcasing tile, stone and other hard surfaces. "The success of Surfaces 2001 proves that the partnership between Hanley-Wood and World Floor Covering Association enhanced the floor covering event exactly as we had planned," said WFCA CEO Chris Davis. "The show was bigger, better and added more value to both attendee and exhibitor."

The all-new Surfaces 2001 Conference Program also proved to be a successful first for the show, according to organizers. Attendees registered for more than 2,500 seminar and workshop sessions on business, sales, marketing, installation, technology and design. Many of the sessions were sold out and all were well attended.

The Surfaces Show is owned by Hanley-Wood, LLC, a business-to-business information provider in the residential and commercial construction industry.
