If that’s not exciting enough, it will first be unveiled May 5th during HD Expo at Bostik’s Hospitality Pavilion at the “Party by the Pool, the exposition’s legendary poolside celebration.

“There is still time to register,” Banda continued. “Already, some of the world’s top designers have submitted designs to portray our requested theme, which must depict the energy, life and essence of Las Vegas. In addition to the Grand Prize, which will be a free trip for two to Paris, the 10 top finalists will receive many terrific prizes, as well.”

Designs from the top 10 finalists will be on display at the “Bostik Gallery Lounge” at HD Expo ‘16, the premier hospitality design trade show held at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, May 4 to 6.

From there, the gallery of finalists will move to the 2016 AIA Convention in Philadelphia, May 19-21. “The winners’ mosaic design work will be seen at both events, and highly publicized globally,” Banda stated.

Ted Acworth, Founder/CEO of Artaic added, “All entrants must submit their design as a 20′ x 8′ backlit feature wall. The Grand Prize winner will be fully constructed and on display at the Bostik Hospitality Pavilion at HD Expo. All submissions must be designed using Artaic’s Tessera™ design software and fabricated using the firm’s robotic manufacturing technology. Bostik’s Dimension™ Pre-Mixed, Glass-Filled Grout (which is available in 15 designer colors) must be used as the final design element of the mosaic. We’re glad to speak with interested designers to further clarify all of this. But time is getting short! We’d like to receive all entrants’ designs by April 4!”
