The 28th edition of Coverings was celebrated in Orlando, FL, this year with a fresh image and new management. The 2017 event, held at Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center from April 4 to 7, proved successful with a total attendance of 28,000. The inaugural exhibition for Taffy Event Strategies, LLC housed 1,100 exhibitors from more than 90 countries.
Sponsored collaboratively by the Ceramic Tile Distributors Association (CTDA), Ceramics of Italy, National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA), Tile of Spain and Tile Council of North America (TCNA), Coverings once again drew the interest of distributors, retailers, specifiers, contractors, installers, fabricators, architects and designers. This year, the show saw a 9% increase from last year’s exhibition in Chicago, IL, and a 10% jump from 2015 when it was also held in Orlando.
