Coverings celebrates 30 years
This year marked the 30th anniversary of Coverings, the largest international tile and stone exhibition and conference in North America
For many years, Coverings has been known as the largest international tile and stone exhibition and conference in America, and deservedly so. Each year, the event draws in thousands of visitors and exhibitors, which showcase some of their latest and greatest innovations.
This year, the event returned to the Orlando County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, from April 9 to 12, to celebrate its 30th anniversary. In celebration of Coverings’ anniversary, attendees were greeted by music from the show’s 1989 launch year as they entered the convention center. A timeline with highlights from Coverings’ heritage further showcased the show’s long-standing history and recognized exhibitors who’ve participated annually. To create new memories, attendees also were encouraged to take pictures in a 30th Anniversary-branded photo booth.
“The strong attendance on the first day of Coverings and thousands of inspiring displays from our global exhibitors truly showcases significant growth in the tile and stone industry,” said Jennifer Hoff, president of Taffy Events, the management company for Coverings. “We’re honored to continue fostering valuable connections and expanding industry knowledge.”
With more than 1,100 exhibitors from 40 countries at this years’ event, there was a lot to see. Below is just a glimpse of some of the new tile collections, products and accessories that were introduced on the show floor this year.
The next edition of Coverings will be held from April 20 to 23, 2020 in New Orleans, LA.
