To prepare for next year's Coverings Tile and Stone Exhibition, organizers have announced that they are now looking for speakers for the Coverings 2013 conference program. The convention, to be held in Atlanta, GA, is looking for speakers to share their experiences and expertise in a variety of topics, including architecture, interior design, installation, fabrication, "green" building, retail sales and distribution. 

The 2013 conference will address the show theme -- Connecting People & Products -- by connecting tile and stone professionals to facilitate learning, networking and innovation across the industry. All sessions are free to registered Coverings attendees and exhibitors. Coverings is a registered provider of AIA and NKBA continuing education and applies for CEUs through IDCEC.

Those that are interested in participating are invited to submit one or more educational, non-proprietary proposals focusing on the core themes of the conference. Themes include the following: facilitating best practices in our professions and businesses; advocating for the use of tile and stone in "green" building; stimulating innovative and cutting-edge use of tile and stone; visioning for the future of the industry -- products, people, businesses; integrating tile and stone with complementary products -- fixtures, lighting, paint, cabinetry, etc.

Entries are now being accepted online with a deadline of August 17, 2012. The organizers have provided a link for submissions. Click here to submit proposals and be considered as a presenter. A limited number of session times are available. As a result, Coverings organizers are unable to accept all presentations. Selections will be made no later than November 1, 2012 and all submitters will be notified of their status by November 15, 2012.
