SURFACES 2013 Trends Hub – Building The Dream

SURFACES_LOGO_greenMiss P & I find ourselves once again in the craziest city of them all – Las Vegas!  We’re thrilled to be curating and presenting Trend events at the vast SURFACES show for the 4th year running.  From the 29th to the 31st of January we’ll be presenting Trend Seminars, Trend Tours and ‘Live In The Hub’ Trend Talks  (you can find all our trend event info HERE) … but before any of that can happen there is the small matter of building the Trends Hub! hub sign

This year we wanted to create a space where visitors to the show could discover the future of flooring and surfaces. Located right on the show floor the team built a visionary zone styled as an R & D Laboratory. Within this space we’ve showcased the latest products from Exhibitors, alongside a unique preview of the major color, texture, material and styling trends for 2013. Plus we’ve introduced an Eco-Lab zone within the main Trends Hub displaying Exhibitors’ product innovations that have Green Credentials.

It was also really important to us that the Trends Hub provided a place for show visitors to take a break, hold a meeting or catch-up on calls and emails, as well as a space for us to deliver regular ‘Live In The Hub’ presentations revealing a round-up of the trends and products on display.

Here’s a look at the building of the hub:
