Surfaces 2004 is set to take place from January 28 to 30 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV, and it is already 80% sold out. Organizers state that almost 10% more exhibiting companies are currently on board for the event than at this time last year. Many returning exhibitors have increased their exhibit booth space, resulting in an additional 30,000 square feet of exhibit space over 2003.

Surfaces is expected to be attended by more than 40,000 floor covering professionals, who will shop on over 500,000 net square feet of exhibit space. "As we begin preparing for Surfaces 2004, we will make an all-out effort to create the most dynamic show ever," said Michelle Troop, Senior Show Director for Surfaces. "We are committed to doing everything possible to make Surfaces 2004 the 'must-attend' event for floor covering professionals."

The new Installation Showcase will give attendees first-hand experience on how to solve the problem of achieving quality installation. This exciting new opportunity, made possible by Surfaces, the WFCA and the Certified Floor Covering Installers Association (CFI), will feature live Demonstration Workshops by foremost experts on the show floor. The conference program will feature all new content in its 42 seminars and workshops. Key industry leaders will offer their expertise on Business, Marketing, Sales, Installation and Design.
