Industry experts continue to share knowledge to contribute to retailer success

Hicksville, N.Y.—FCNews for the sixth consecutive year will be the exclusive sponsor of the flooring portion of The International Surface Event (TISE) education program, which will be held Jan. 19–22 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Featuring 45 flooring-specific courses geared toward retailers and distributors, many being offered at the show for the first time, the program offers something for everyone. The complete course schedule with some overviews will be available in the Jan. 4/11 issue of FCNews.

FCNews publisher Steven Feldman, who is a member of the TISE Advisory Council, said he is looking forward to another lineup of useful, insightful education sessions. “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 again take an active part as a number of its columnists will be imparting their knowledge to attendees, including Lisbeth Calandrino, author of “Lisbiz Strategies”; Jim Armstrong, author of “Marketing Mastery”; Scott Perron, author of “Retailer2 Retailer”; and its newest columnist, David Romano, author of “Survey Says.” In addition, this year FCNews managing editor Jenna Lippin will moderate a retailer forum, “Share Challenges & Explore Solutions,” on Tuesday, Jan. 19, at 2 p.m.
