We were excited to participate in this year’s PCBC, an annual professional trade show and educational conference dedicated to residential housing industries. The conference attracts more than 10,000 attendees and 350 exhibitors showcasing innovative products from a variety of industries, including interior design, manufacturing, architecture, contracting, carpentry, real estate, and more. PCBC is sponsored by the California Building Industry Association and endorsed by the Leading Builders of America.

At PCPB 2017, which took place June 28th and 29th at the San Diego Convention Center in California, Arizona Tile was honored to set up an exhibit highlighting some of the new and stunning additions to our tile and slab collection.

The show provided an exciting and exclusive look into emerging trends and new technologies in the residential housing market including a unique glimpse into today’s hottest tile designs and materials. Many of our newer tile and slab drew plenty of interest at PCBC. Some of the most popular Arizona Tile products at the show included:

  • Wave Quartz – A high performance surface ultra-durable and resistant to scratches, chipping and staining.

The popularity of these products shows a growing interest in textured tile, concrete-look quartz, and geometric designs. Our booth also received many compliments for its design!

We were also honored to participate in the National Buyers Circle, an exclusive event that’s part of the PCBC’s partnership with the Leading Builders of America. This event took place before the trade show and allowed members of our executive team to take part in informative meetings with 15 of the country’s largest national and regional builders. The information we learned from these meetings will help us create our plans for the future, and it also provided an invaluable networking opportunity.

PCBC and the National Buyers Circle  event were both great experiences and we look forward to attending in 2018!
