First Timer's Guide to TISE

The International Surface Event (TISE) can be overwhelming to first timers...

There's a lot of information you need to know in order to make your time at the event worth-while. That's why we've created this online guide to help you prepare for the adventure ahead. 

First thing's first. Be sure to register for TISE 2018, the sooner the better. Rates go up after the "Early Bird Deadline", so hop (or chirp) to get notified when registration opens! Second, arrange your hotel accommodations. Keep in mind that January is projected to be a very busy month for business travel due to several other large conventions scheduled around the same time as TISE, book your hotel early!

In 2018, TISE will feature First Time Attendee Orientations. RSVP for these sessions during online registration. By attending, you're sure to gain tips on how to navigate the show floor, info about special events and we'll answer as many questions as we can in 20 minutes!
