The second edition of the International Tile & Stone Show (ITSS) is slated for November 13 to 15 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. The exhibition was launched last year with the specific intention to target the stone and ceramic tile industries on the West Coast. For this reason, the show will permanently remain in Las Vegas, according to show organizers.

Statistics illustrate that visitors from the West Coast market represented 48% of the event’s total attendance. At the time of the first exhibition, many exhibitors expressed optimism about the new show. Not only were they pleased with the favorable location, but manufacturers of stone products, machinery and accessories, and installation and maintenance products believed that ITSS provided an opportunity to conduct business with fabricators, distributors and those in the design community who don’t regularly make the journey to exhibitions on the East Coast.

According to ITSS organizers, expectations for this year’s event are high. While last year’s exhibition drew a fair amount of traffic and included 225 exhibitors, it is believed that ITSS 2003 will see more activity. Many of those who exhibited at last year’s show commented that while ITSS wasn’t bustling compared to other exhibitions, they did receive quality visitors, which led to business contacts and purchases.

ITSS 2003 will provide an arena for those in the stone and ceramic tile industries to gather and showcase their latest developments in technology. In addition to display boards of the newest stone and tile collections, including decorative mosaic patterns and borders, the exhibition floor will also consist of demonstrations of large-scale and hand-held machinery as well as presentations explaining the benefits of maintenance and cleaning products.
