Dallas—Informa Exhibitions U.S. announced that The International Surface Event East (TISE East) 2015 dates have shifted to Nov. 2-5 and the location has moved to Orlando, Fla. at the Orange County Convention Center. These new dates and location will more aptly serve the industry, from both an attendee and exhibitor standpoint, creating a vibrant yet cost-effective experience while maintaining the convenience of an international hub.
TISE East 2015 exhibits will open Tuesday, Nov. 3 and continue through Thursday, Nov. 5. The comprehensive education program will feature more than 45 continuing education sessions combined with numerous industry certifications, show floor tours and demos.
“We had no question there was a significant need for an East Coast event,” said Amie Gilmore, CEM, director of TISE. “The positive response generated from TISE East 2014 positively reinforced this theory, creating additional business opportunities for our distinguished audience of both exhibitors and attendees. We achieved our goal of delivering an international audience with buyers from the important Latin American market including Mexico, South America and the Caribbean as well as attendees from Europe who are unable to travel to Las Vegas in January.”
“Hosting our event in Orlando provides a quality venue of choice that maintains affordability in terms of travel, housing and freight,” said Dana Teague, vice president with Informa Exhibitions U.S. and TISE. “When evaluating the optimal location, we surveyed both exhibitors and attendees and Orlando topped the list for both accessibility and affordability. With the U.S. construction market poised for future growth, we expect TISE East will continue to attract new suppliers and dealers as well as a completely different audience you won’t see in Las Vegas.”
