Organizers of Coverings have announced that the venue for its 2011 tile and stone exhibition is now officially Las Vegas. The expo will take place March 14-17, 2011, at the Sands Convention Center.
While a previous
announcement named Los Angeles as the Coverings 2011 location, show organizers say
they “jumped at the chance to make the switch to Las Vegas when the opportunity
“Coverings has had
its eye on Las Vegas for years, so we’re thrilled that the show will be going
to this truly singular city earlier than we had anticipated,” said Jennifer
Hoff, president of events for National Trade Productions (NTP), which manages
and produces Coverings. “Given Las Vegas’ unrivaled status as the No. 1 venue
for some of the world’s leading conventions and trade shows, we have no doubt
that Coverings 2011 will rank as one of our most successful and memorable shows
NTP says its decision
to take Coverings to Las Vegas is an exciting development in show organizers’
plan to make a strategic move westward following this year’s upcoming show,
April 27-30, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. “Given that
the West Coast is a key market for tile and stone, and also home to some of the
world’s leading architects and designers, Coverings has long been keen to
return to the region. The inaugural Coverings show was held 21 years ago in Los
Angeles, and then twice again in Anaheim, CA, in its early past.”
“In Las Vegas, we
have the best of everything: an incomparable resort city that’s not only an
easy commute from the West Coast, but also a top draw for those from all over
the country, and indeed the rest of the world as well,” said Hoff.
