Coverings 2011 was an amazing show this year. For the first time ever the show landed in Vegas and nearly a month early. The feel at the show was the most positive North America has seen since the recession. Most manufacturers reported a hungry crowd that gobbled up innovations and placed many orders.

Patti was, as usual, the rockstar of the show...presenting three topics in the official conferences and daily presentations on the Tile of Spain Booth. Her annual trend synopsis at the international press conference had the audience on the edge of their seats as usual.

To kick off this amazing event, Patti was invited to do a TV spot on new innovations to be showcased the opening morning of the event. Patti and HGTV's Ali Azhar from"Design on a Dime" and had guest spots on "Las Vegas Morning Blend."
