Dallas — Hanley Wood Exhibitions has announced that Surfaces | StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas will co-date with the International Builders’ Show (IBS) and Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in 2015 to join Design | Construction Week in Las Vegas.

Surfaces | StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas will be located at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center from Jan. 21 to Jan. 23, 2015, while IBS and KBIS will be located at the Las Vegas Convention Center from Jan. 20 to Jan. 22, 2015. Each show will remain separate and distinct, however, the co-date arrangement will allow attendees from all four events the opportunity to conveniently attend all.

“The co-dating with IBS and KBIS in 2015 is a major advancement for Surfaces | StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas,” explained Dana Teague, group director, Surfaces | StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas. “This strategic agreement adds value for both the buyers and exhibitors at both venues. We look forward to seeing our attendees and exhibitors reap the benefits that will ensue.”

The official sponsoring organizations of Surfaces | StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas, World Floor Covering Association (WFCA), Marble Institute of America (MIA) and Natural Stone Council (NSC) are equally as optimistic about the co-dating of the four shows.  “For the first time ever, industry professionals from all sides of the consumer housing spectrum will be able to meet, interface and collaborate in one place,” said Cammie Weitzel, general manager of World Floor Covering Association. “The creation of Design | Construction Week in Las Vegas in 2015, along with its all-access pass, will give attendees of all four shows an advantage that cannot be replicated anywhere in the world.”

Jim Hieb, executive vice president & CEO of Marble Institute of America, added, “The opportunity to bring four great industries/events together in one city for a mega construction week is collaboration at its best.”
