"We are excited at the new lineup of opportunities being presented to the industry at the upcoming Orlando TISE East in November," said Amie Gilmore, CEM, Show Director. "These unique new opportunities, along with the event's key association partnerships, and the incredible Orlando destination, are setting up TISE East as a stellar event for the industry."
New Show Features:
The Porch, Open Air Design Concept will be the hub of activity on the show floor, which will include happy hours, cocktail bar, lounges, the central meeting location for tours, and much more. The Porch offers solutions to the high demand design, architectural and retail needs for the ever popular Open Air Design Concept. This beautifully designed show feature will showcase exhibitor's floor covering, stone and tile products, artfully paired with designer accessories, perfect for the outdoor living space.

TISE East also introduces the newest and most exciting learning experience for industry professionals, The Peer 180 Conference, a peer-to-peer conference experience like no other. Unlike traditional conferences, attendees do not sit through pre-determined topics that may or may not provide the information they need. With Peer 180, attendees will share the problems with which they need help, the answers they have learned from their own experiences, and make real connections with professionals who face the same challenges. This conference provides a smaller, more intimate and supported environment that is tailored by and for the individual attendee. See schedule and details on Peer 180.
