Nominations are currently being accepted for the 11th annual Best of Surfaces contest. The award-based program is cosponsored by Floor Covering News and Informa Exhibitions, which owns and operates The International Surface Event (TISE). The competition has become the benchmark for new product excellence and booth design.
The Best of Surfaces awards are designed to recognize those companies whose product, program, service, business practice or booth design are considered to be best in class. What separates Best of Surfaces from other awards programs is the fact that categories are not segmented by product type; rather, they focus on attribute. As such, the Best of Surfaces awards will cite products and programs in the following categories:
- Style & Design
- Booth Design
Winning a Best of Surfaces award can truly drive product success on the retail floor, as past winners will attest. Winners will receive:
- Recognition on the Surfaces and FCNews websites
- A customized Best of Surfaces 2022 logo for placement on all advertising
- An exquisite, custom-engraved award presented at the booth by members of show management and FCNews staff
- Coverage in FCNews
For exhibitors, consider this a call for entries. Please enter a product, program, service, business practice or booth in the category you believe to be most reflective of the product’s primary attribute. Suppliers are limited to one entry per category.
For more information or to enter, contact Michelle Swayze at Informa at 972.536.6449 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Retailer panel judges will determine the winners of the 2022 competition. If you are a flooring dealer—past or present—who has an understanding of what constitutes excellence in the Best of Surfaces’ five categories, FCNews wants to hear from you.
