About the Event


Short for Z Collection + Business, ZBIZ is an annual tradeshow featuring the latest and greatest in the tile industry.


Calling all tile nerds, design aficionados, and industry professionals! Designers, Builders, Contractors, Remodelers, Dealers, Family, and Friends, get ready for the ultimate showcase of craftsmanship and innovation at the inaugural ZBIZ'24 Installation Showdown.

On June 20th, 2024, at the Z Collection showroom in Portland, Oregon, this groundbreaking event promises to redefine the standards of excellence in tile installation. Six expert tile installation companies will go head-to-head in a thrilling competition, tasked with creating stunning bathroom or kitchen furniture pieces using only porcelain tile. From fireplaces to vanities, benches to fountains, each masterpiece will be limited to a maximum height and length of 4 feet, allowing for creativity to flourish within defined parameters.

The ZBIZ'24 Installation Showdown will not only showcase the completed works of art but also provide a unique opportunity for attendees to interact with the participating teams. In a speed dating-style setup, designers and contractors will have five minutes to engage with each team, learning about their design process, craftsmanship skills, and super powers. Adding to the ambiance, attendees will have the chance to witness the creation of beautiful floral arrangements at dedicated stations throughout the showroom. These floral masterpieces will complement the exquisite tile installations, further emphasizing the event's theme: "Details Matter."

But the excitement doesn't end there. Attendees will also have the opportunity to explore the latest innovations in the tile industry, with leading vendors showcasing cutting-edge products alongside Z Collection's Summer introductions. From innovative technologies to avant-garde designs, the event promises to be a feast for the senses, inspiring creativity and pushing the boundaries of possibility.

In addition to in-person voting, attendees will have the opportunity to cast their votes online, ensuring that every voice is heard in determining the winner of the ZBIZ'24 Installation Showdown. The victorious team will be announced at the conclusion of the event, with all pieces remaining on display at the Z Collection showroom for an entire month, allowing visitors to continue to be inspired by the unparalleled craftsmanship and artistry.
