RD Weis Companies at the “Ceramic Tile College” training seminar held in Dallas, TX on August 6th and 7th, 2013

These twenty happy faces, representing eight Starnet Member firms, only begin to tell the story of how valuable we found the Daltile two-day “Ceramic Tile College” training seminar held in Dallas, TX on August 6th and 7th, 2013 to be.

The participants’ experience level with ceramic tile varied greatly, but everyone came away from both the classroom training, and the Marazzi Plant, R&D, Design, and Regional Distribution Center tours, with learning they can put to immediate use. Need to understand the difference between Porcelain and regular ceramic tile, what ColorBody really means, how to order the correct amount of tile for a modular pattern floor, or how to waterproof wet areas? Mike Ferris at Dal-Tile not only ensured we all walked away with the clear answers, he gave us each a reference workbook no one is going to let out of their office.

Todd Lehr and Risa Vega planned and organized an extremely educational and enjoyable seminar, including the best steak dinner many of us said we've had in a long time! From the nineteen Starnet participants, THANK YOU, Daltile!
