Coverings 2011 is scheduled to take place March 14-17 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas. Registration for the four-day event is free and includes a global exhibit hall with more than 1000 exhibitors from 50 countries. In addition, attendees can expect to enjoy a professional development conference and training opportunities.
Highlights of the event include an Installation Design Showcase (booth 178) where National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) Five-Star members will work on the creation of three concept bathrooms by leading designers. Exhibition attendees will be able to view the progressive evolution of these vignettes to their completed state.
Another exhibit will feature the winning entries in the PROJECT: Green competition, a program with Environmental Design + Construction
magazine that recognizes outstanding tile and stone projects where sustainability was a driving goal.
The Coverings conference series will include more than 70 training and education sessions, all of which are free and offer continuing education unit (CEU) credits.
