The Tile Association | Find Tilers, Stockists and Fitters

TTA members can take centre stage at The Tiling Show

A packed programme of demonstrations organised by The Tile Association will be taking place at the first ever Tiling Show in September.

The Tiling Show ? a brand new exhibition that will be running alongside The Flooring Show ? will be held at the Harrogate International Centre from 18th to 20th September 2016.

The TTA Demo Zone will be at the heart of the show, with practical presentations lifting the lid on a huge range of topics and techniques.

The schedule for the three days is below, and TTA members are encouraged to book one of the slots if they would like to take centre stage at the event.

Ian Kershaw, chairman of the TTA, said: “The Tile Asociation 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 demonstrations in the TTA Demo Zone.”

The Tiling Show is also a perfect exhibition opportunity and members of the Tile Association get a 10% reduction to exhibit. Further information and pricing is available on The Tiling Show’s website.?If you’d like more information, email or call 0300 365 8453
