Dallas–The International Surface Event (TISE) has issued a call for presentation, demonstration and session proposals to all educators, consultants and specialists for the educational program.

TISE is seeking qualified speakers and skilled demonstrators who enjoy connecting with others to further the expertise and knowledge within their field. Sessions are 90 minutes and demonstrations are 30 minutes in length, and should contain timely, practical information that can be immediately implemented in the workplace. The program is designed to help attendees increase their bottom line and expand their technical knowledge while exploring the latest trends.

Our goal is to remain the unparalleled resource for real-world education for industry professionals ready to expand their knowledge and skills,” said Jennifer Hughes, education manager.

Topic submissions should focus on applications-oriented, real world, problem-solving topics and be free of promotional materials to sell a product or service.

An industry advisory committee will review and rank proposals to assist in the development of the program. Questions should be directed to Hughes at 972-536-6320 or Jennifer.hughes@informa.com.
