What Taking Tile Outlets to the Tampa Bay Home Show Involves
TOA: Javy, tell us about the Tampa Home show. When did it happen, where did it take place, what was it about?

This shows hosts home improvement experts from kitchen and baths to flooring, to windows and home protection.

TOA: Who else from Tile Outlets of America joined you?

Tons of people came to our booth wondering how to find the store. They were happy to know we have three different locations in Florida and lots of different selections for any tile project.

TOA: What did you have on display?
JG: We had a great variety of products on display!
We featured four different colors from our luxury vinyl tile which is perfect for shows like these because of the simple installation it provides.
We also displayed our new wall tile trend which consists of larger wall tiles such as 15”x30” which is a great size for minimizing grout lines on the wall. These products also represented the popular white tile trend.
Finally, we had a full vanity set up from Priele.
TOA: What reactions did you get?
JG: We had nothing but positive reactions from the attendees.
We had a ton of great giveaways from mini footballs to bags full of goodies and even a Dewalt drill which retails for about $160!
TOA: What kinds of conversations did you have with participants?
JG: The attendees were really interested in the new luxury vinyl tile. They were really impressed with the quality of the product and the great benefits such as easy installation and the durability of the product.
TOA: What was your biggest surprise?
JG: My biggest surprise was the great response to the beautiful Priele vanity!
The glass top looked great under the stadium lights and people were surprised to see a glass top used.
I explained that Priele uses tempered glass on all their tops and they back up all their products with a 60-day money back guarantee and direct customer service
TOA: What was the best part about the Tampa Bay Home Show?
JG: The best part about the show was talking to people and letting them know we have a great staff that can help them with all their tile and cabinet needs.
A lot of times the customer can get overwhelmed making sure they are making the right investment in their homes. We have the right staff to design any kitchen cabinet, backsplash, bathroom or any tile project you have in mind.
TOA: Thanks, Javy!
