July 17, 2012
To prepare for next year's Coverings Tile and Stone Exhibition, organizers have announced that they are now looking for speakers for the Coverings 2013 conference program. The convention, to be held in Atlanta, GA, is looking for speakers to share their experiences and expertise in a variety of topics, including architecture, interior design, installation, fabrication, "green" building, retail sales and distribution. 

The 2013 conference will address the show theme -- Connecting People & Products -- by connecting tile and stone professionals to facilitate learning, networking and innovation across the industry. All sessions are free to registered Coverings attendees and exhibitors. Coverings is a registered provider of AIA and NKBA continuing education and applies for CEUs through IDCEC.
 

Those that are interested in participating are invited to submit one or more educational, non-proprietary proposals focusing on the core themes of the conference. Themes include the following: facilitating best practices in our professions and businesses; advocating for the use of tile and stone in "green" building; stimulating innovative and cutting-edge use of tile and stone; visioning for the future of the industry -- products, people, businesses; integrating tile and stone with complementary products -- fixtures, lighting, paint, cabinetry, etc.

Entries are now being accepted online with a deadline of August 17, 2012. The organizers have provided a link for submissions. Click here to submit proposals and be considered as a presenter. A limited number of session times are available. As a result, Coverings organizers are unable to accept all presentations.

This year, the Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition, an annual awards program sponsored by Confindustria Ceramica (the Italian Association of Ceramics) and the Italian Trade Commission, attracted the most competitive pool of projects in the contest's history. The winning projects speak to the A&D community's commitment to using a material that is technically advanced, aesthetically pleasing and manufactured with a focus on sustainability. Nine projects in three categories were recognized: residential, institutional and commercial. The grand-prize winners include a century-old, three-floor adaptive re-use project (Schaefer-Graf Residence), a 675,000-square-foot entertainment arena (Barclays Center) and a LEED-certified government building (NIST) in addition to six projects who received honorable mentions from the jury.
