The International Surface Event (TISE) has served over 30 years, providing endless opportunities for growth and expansion for the flooring, stone and tile community.
Over the past ten years, TISE has organized and provided over $300K to charitable organizations. One such organization is the Floor Covering Industry Foundation (FCIF), an organization whose mission is to get families back on their feet when battling catastrophic injuries, severe disabilities, or other life-altering medical crises. TISE hosts the FCIF advisory board annually at the event.
TISE also serves as an anchor during industry crisis. Starting in 2016, the industry began to feel the effects of a flooring professional shortage, selling more products than could be professionally installed. TISE hosted the first ever Installation Summit in 2016, supported an Installer Crisis Industry Research Study, and brought back the annual National Installer of the Year Competition. In addition, TISE has helped produce a standalone event called Build My Future: Flooring Edition, an event introducing high school students to careers as installers in the surface industry.
TISE also works each year to give valuable resources to organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, A New Day, and Opportunity Village, right off of the show floor. A collaborative effort between the event service provider, the event exhibitors, and the TISE event staff has ended in donations of 8 to 10 large box trucks each year of the newest and most beautiful flooring, stone, and tile products going to people in need for their homes.
While these are not all of the incredible opportunities that The International Surface Event has had to give back and serve the community, these examples do provide a snapshot of the ability of events to help businesses in the industry, while making a long-lasting impact on the community!
