Users can also search the exhibitor list, access the floor plan and search education sessions and events taking place at the three shows. Other features include a calendar, show alerts during the event and social media integration. Additionally, users can access their hotel reservations and information on local restaurants and attractions in Las Vegas.

The International Surface Event recently announced the launch of the all-new TileExpo, a new tile focused show that will be held in conjunction with SURFACES and StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas in 2014.
