coverings-2017-ad-600-x-400-anim-2Arlington, Va.—Coverings, the largest international tile & stone exhibition in North America, will feature over 65 sessions in its 2017 conference program—where distinguished speakers will share their knowledge and cutting-edge industry information with attendees. The conference program will highlight pressing topics for the tile and stone industry throughout the show from April 4-7 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.

The conference sessions build upon Coverings’ dedication to providing world-class education with content tailored to each attendee segment: architects, builders/remodelers, designers, distributors, fabricators, installers, retailers and Spanish-speaking attendees. New for 2017, Coverings will offer contractor advanced business topics, contractor beginner-intermediate and the thin tile mini-track. The conference is open to all attendees and, with many CEU credits available, these sessions continue to bring invaluable free education to the show.

Coverings 2017 will present 10 featured sessions highlighting various topics from industry leaders. These sessions include: “Critical Changes to Industry Standards, Guidelines and Best Practices,” “Communicating with Color/Design: Inspiring and Defining Essential Trends,” “Design: A Global Affair,” “Stone Trends: A Historical Perspective,” “Coastal Resilience–Rethinking Design for Extreme Weather Conditions,” “Behind the Curtain to Zero-Incident Safety!” “What’s Trending in Hospitality?” “Design, Health and Wellness in the Workplace,” “What’s Next in Customer Engagement–More Than Ten Ideas Your Customers Will ‘Like’ and ‘Love’ You For” and a fireside chat with Todd-Avery Lenahan, founder of TAL-Studio.
