The Tiling Show — a brand new UK exhibition for the tile and stone industry — will be launched in 2016.
The Tile Association has teamed up with organisers Wendy Adams Associates to stage the exhibition at the Harrogate International Centre from 18th to 20th September 2016.
This year saw the continued success of The Flooring Show, which took place in Harrogate in September and saw 175 exhibitors and 2,780 unique visitors from 28 countries attend over the three-day event. In 2016 the show will be celebrating its 54th consecutive year.
Due to its continued success, The Flooring Show is introducing a brand new exhibition, The Tiling Show, which will be geared to attract a specialist, trade-only audience.
Organisers Wendy Adams Associates have already received over 20 stand bookings for the show and are looking forward to developing key feature areas, including a Demonstration Zone in conjunction with The Tile Association.
Ian Kershaw, chairman of the TTA, said: “The TTA is delighted to be partnering with the prestigious Harrogate Flooring Show to create the first-ever UK Tiling Show in 2016. After a number of years without a dedicated tiling show for the UK market, we view the launch of The Tiling Show as a very welcome development.
“This will be somewhere that our members and others in the tiling sector can do business, network, learn about the key trends and view product demonstrations. We are committed to playing our part in developing The Tiling Show into a new and unique platform for our industry.”
This exciting new launch will bring more surface-related products together in a dedicated hall with its own entrance and registration, but with the benefit of visitor cross-over from The Flooring Show. The show will be marketed to all tiling retailers as well as the contract sector — contractors, specifiers, interior designers and architects.
More information will be available on The Tiling Show website.
