Arley’s 11th Annual Tile, Stone Expo Taking Shape

Arley's 11th Annual Tile & Stone Expo

Scranton, Pa. — Arley Wholesale, Inc., a family-owned, third generation wholesale supplier of ceramic, porcelain, stone, glass mosaic tiles and installation materials, will host its 11th Annual Arley Wholesale Tile & Stone Exposition on Tuesday, June 11, 2013. Taking place at the classic Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel in Scranton, Pa., the Expo opens at 10 a.m. and winds down around 5 p.m. on Tuesday evening, closing out a three-day celebration that includes the hugely popular Arley Golf Classic on Monday.

In particular, the expo offers great opportunities for flooring retailers, who will see firsthand great new tile and stone materials, all of which have been thoroughly researched by the Arley team, ensuring that they’re “market-ready.” This process saves dealers time and energy in making new product selections. And for many, the expo saves them the time and expense of attending larger national trade shows which take place on the West Coast or Florida.

Furthermore, attendees will have the opportunity to meet with manufacturers one-on-one. With world-leading tile and stone manufacturers on-site presenting hundreds of individually labeled installed floorboards, concept boards, grouted panel sets, multiple vignettes and much more, Arley’s event has become a “must-do” experience . Arley Wholesale extends its invitation to store owners, architects, interior designers, specification professionals, builders and contractors looking to browse and specify the very latest styles and trends in tile and stone.

Scott Levy, Executive Vice President of Operations for Arley Wholesale has seen his firm’s annual event become more and more helpful to its clientele each year.  “One of the major offerings this year will be that all items on display will be totally ready to be private-labeled. Retailers that are preparing to market lines bearing their names will now be able to easily do so.”

Levy went on to say that his firm’s event is the “only specialized trade show offering products which are either in stock or on their way to be inventoried. Retailers, for example, aren’t forced to import and then inventory for large containers of tile and stone. They have the option to select the latest products delivered by truck, and in most occasions, on the road the next day.”

And, now that Arley has a full service facility complete with state-of-the-art warehousing in Greensboro, NC, Levy expects even more attendees to come from that part of the country. “Our customers can now enjoy the benefits of purchasing all of their needs through one source. This cuts down their freight costs, hassle of trying to coordinate shipments and gives them the opportunity to see inventory online, order online and manage their account 24/7! They’ll be able to find out about this and much more at our annual event!”

Stefano Rabaioli, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Florim USA added, “We’ve been showing our products at the Arley trade event for a number of years. Not only do we end with more business for our company, we get the opportunity to network with the national press, with great new prospects  and other manufacturers, as well. It is a very professionally handled event, and I’d advise anyone in the industry to find the time to attend. It’s a great experience.”

David Lowe, Arley’s Vice President of Sales who presides as Master of Ceremonies during the Sunday night Dinner Celebration, summed it all up by declaring, “Yes, everyone wins… and everyone has fun. In this day and age, who could ask for anything more?”
