Home Inside FCNews FCNews to sponsor education program for fifth year

January 5/12, 2015; Volume 28/Number 14

FCNews for the fifth consecutive year be the exclusive sponsor of the flooring portion of The 2015 International Surface Event (TISE) education program, which will be held Jan. 20–23 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Featuring 45 flooring-specific courses geared towards retailers and distributors, many being offered at the show for the first time, the program offers something for everyone. (For the complete 73-course schedule with some overviews, see pages 14-17.)

FCNews publisher Steven Feldman, who is a member of the TISE Advisory Council, believes this is the strongest lineup of sessions yet. “Each year we sift through hundreds of proposals seeking the most useful schedule. I encourage all Surfaces attendees to look over the program. I’m sure there are multiple presentations that can help any retailer’s business.”

Along with sponsoring the flooring portion of the program, FCNews will once again be taking an active part as a number of its columnists will be imparting their knowledge to attendees, including Liz Calandrino, author of “Lisbiz Strategies,” Jim Augustus Armstrong, author of “Marketing Mastery,” Scott Perron, author of “Retailer2 Retailer,” and our newest columnist, David Romano, author of “Survey Says.”
