Arley's 14th annual Tile & Stone Expo eclipses last year's event
SCRANTON, PA --Arley Wholesale, Inc., a family-owned, third-generation wholesale supplier of ceramic, porcelain, stone, glass mosaic tiles and installation materials will host its 14th annual Arley Wholesale Tile & Stone Exposition on Tuesday, July 12th, again at the celebrated Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel in Scranton, PA. This will conclude a the three-day celebration, which includes the highly popular Arley golf classic.
Arley’s president, Scott Levy will give his annual business forecast speech at the Sunday dinner gala, a presentation guests have come to look forward to for more than a decade. Then, the event moves to the Glen Oak country club for the always fun and highly entertaining golf outing. "Arley has been fortunate that in 2016 both sales and profits are up and the market is very good at the moment," said Levy. "The partnership between Arley, its customers and its suppliers has never been stronger."
To keep the event fresh, Arley planned some major changes/upgrades this year. For the Expo, the floor plan will be changed. Sundries (a large part of Arley’s “full-service supplier” commitment to its customer base) and tile products have their own separate areas so that Arley’s suppliers and customers can concentrate on their specialized areas.
As always, Arley will feature new and innovative, cutting-edge products emphasizing color and current designs. The firm’s private label program, Qualis Ceramica, features several special offers. Additionally, attendees will learn of Arley’s strategic extra steps used to protect the private label program so many of its customers have embraced.
"Our Riviera Collection of higher end products will offer large incentives for customers to feature in their showrooms," Levy added. "The products will be sold through an authorized dealer network that will give our retail partners an incredible opportunity to make solid margins on inventoried material. We can’t wait to tell both customers and prospects about how they will be able to prosper with this program. The Arley commercial division is growing. The addition of Florim's 2 x 4 x 6-mm slabs is very exciting, and includes a solid group of supporting products. This product range is great for banks, hospitality, offices and other high-end residential installation work."
Additional items offered at Arley's Expo are porcelain exterior pavers, new Arley marketing tools, closeouts on sale, new stocking programs and also a well thought-out "guaranteed stock program."
One special offering will take place on the golf course at hole number 10. A brand new car will be on display at the tee, and be awarded to anyone who scores a hole-in-one on the hole.
