TISE 2018 Recap
Feb 2, 2018
Excitement reverberated throughout the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas as thousands of fabricators, builders, and designers filled the building for the 2018 International Surface Event, or as most have come to know it as: TISE. The show was buzzing as the overall registration for TISE was up 20% from the previous year and in Park Industries®' booth, #3837, the activity was strong.
Park Industries®’ open design of their booth welcomed visitors to move around comfortably, network with other fabricators, and easily view the displayed machines while they discussed machine features. Park's machine lineup at TISE included the newly introduced SABERjet CNC SawJet and ATLAS Tool Measurement System which were paired with the legends in stone, the TITAN® CNC Router and the HYDRASPLIT® Stone Splitter.
Off the main floor of the show, there were over 70 educational sessions, and one speaker among them was Joan Schatz, Park Co-President. Joan inspired attendees at the trade show with her Whitewater Presentation about turning obstacles into growth opportunities.
In addition to the networking and education of the trade show, Park Industries® enhanced the experience with an open house. After the show on Wednesday, Park industries held an open house at Desert Eagle Stone. With a crowd of over 60 fabricators in attendance, it was a smashing success with attendees viewing live production of Desert Eagle's Stone variety of Park Machines.
Park Customer Named ‘2017 Fabricator of the Year’
Longtime Park customer, Dave Scott (Slabworks Montana) received Stone World Magazine's prestigious "2017 Fabricator of the Year" award. Dave has always been a great partner and customer to Park Industries®, and in an effort to continually improve himself and his peers, he encourages discussions of new technology and innovative business strategies between fabricators.
Part of that effort involves his numerous presentations at Park's Digital Stoneworking Expos. Last year he hosted a DSE at his shop in Montana, and will be presenting at both of the upcoming Digital Stoneworking Expos on March 22nd in South Carolina as well as April 19th in Colorado.
