House Tipster Adding Virtual Reality Experience to 2018 TISE Coverage
RIDGEFIELD PARK, NJ — House Tipster is proud to be partnering with The International Surface Event (TISE) at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas from Jan. 29 through Feb. 1. One of the largest professional conventions of its kind, TISE is comprised of three world-class trade shows: SURFACES, StonExpo/Marmomac, and Tile Expo. This four-day industry marketplace for floor covering, stone, and tile industry professionals will feature the newest products, hands-on demos, inspiring trends, key manufacturers, industry suppliers, and unparalleled networking and educational opportunities.
During the event, House Tipster will host a virtual reality experience at "The Dish: Design & Installation Showcase Hub" to demonstrate its new interior design innovation: 360-degree Virtual Rooms.
What are Virtual Rooms? Well, House Tipster’s Virtual Rooms allow anyone to be an interior designer and select the colors, styles, and finishes for multiple design elements in a photo-realistic virtual reality environment. It’s a powerful tool for both professionals and novices to experiment with different design ideas and see what they would really look like before deciding what designs they should make reality in their own homes.
Everyone is invited to visit House Tipster’s booth during the show to try this revolutionary new design tool for themselves. There’s never been anything else quite like it before. House Tipster will provide six different Virtual Room stations for everyone to use. Five of the stations will feature larger-than-life touchscreens, and the sixth will be a 360-degree immersive Oculus Rift VR station.
House Tipster's Virtual Rooms will also include virtual versions of products from several different companies, including American Olean, Daltile, Marazzi, Lauzon Flooring, and USFloors.

House Tipster’s Media Team will also gather information during the event on the industry trends that matter to homeowners, interior designers, and other professionals.
“We’re thrilled to visit this year’s Surface Event to get a glimpse of the newest trends in materials, decor, and tiles that matter to our audience,” said Thomas Wolosik, Executive Manager at House Tipster. “Our Media Team is eager to talk with brand representatives and hear about exactly what they’re adding to the retail market. It’s an exciting time in the home design and lifestyle markets, and we’re glad to be a part of it. Our virtual reality experience is going to be out-of-this-world. Everyone is invited to come check it out and see it for themselves.”
