For the third straight year, the International Tile & Stone Show (ITSS) will take place in Las Vegas, NV, and it will feature a new wrinkle this edition. The show, which takes place from October 21 to 23 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, will feature educational seminars after the close of the exhibition floor on the event's second day, October 22.

The exhibition will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. each of the three days, and exhibitors will be showcasing the latest offerings in natural stone tiles, slabs, cut-to-size pieces and furnishings. On the machinery end, suppliers from around the world will be offering equipment and tooling for fabricators of all sizes. Finally, products for stone installation, maintenance and restoration will also be on display at ITSS.

The organizers of ITSS report that hosting the seminar program after show hours will maximize the exhibitors' and attendees' opportunity to interact and do business with each other. The seminar program is free, and they will be set in a networking cocktail reception where buyers and fabricators can mingle with the owners of important industry companies.

Seminar participants do not need to register in advance. Simply follow the signs for the ITSS Networking Cocktail Reception, which will take place from 4:30 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. on Friday, October 22. This will be followed by the ITSS Speaker Presentation from 5:15 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
