Dallas—In an effort to participate in the 2015 recycling initiative at The International Surface Event (TISE), recently held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, more than 84 exhibitors committed to donating and an amazing 140,765 lbs. of gently used floor covering, stone and tile products were collected over the three-day period. Recycled materials included cardboard, carpet, carpet pads, concrete, metal, aluminum, paper, plastics, wood crates and pallets.
“From a standpoint of being the premier industry event, as well as a leading organizer of trade shows in the U.S., we are proud of these remarkable results and this initiative,” said Dana Teague, vice president, Informa Exhibitions U.S. and TISE. “Sustainability touches all of our lives and businesses, and is truly a social responsibility not to be ignored. Our participating exhibiting companies and partners are making a positive impact by touching lives of local communities where it matters most.”
