The International Surface Event (TISE) or aka “Surfaces” is held every January at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is the largest floor covering show held in North America, attracting over 40,000 attendees for the 3-day education and exposition of the best in flooring.

The action was busy at Surfaces 2017.

At this year’s event, held January 18 – 20, Novalis shared space with one of its major distributor partners, Longust Distributing, and showcased its NovaFloor® product line, featuring “Main Street” collections Abberly™Davidson™ and Birkdale™; as well as its NovaCore™ and NovaCore™ XL HPC (High Performance Core) lines for residential floor covering specialty retailers.

This was the first time Novalis had a presence in the show and considered it a resounding success. Learn more about the entire Novalis NovaFloor® product line by visiting
