Coverings show management recently announced that the 2011 edition of the event will take place in Las Vegas, NV. This year’s event will remain in Orlando, FL, at the Orange County Convention Center, and it is scheduled for April 24 to 27.

While a previous announcement named Los Angeles as the Coverings 2011 location, show organizers jumped at the chance to make the switch to Las Vegas when the opportunity presented itself. Next year’s edition of Coverings will take place from March 14 to 17, 2011 at the Sands Convention Center.

“Coverings has had its eye on Las Vegas for years, so we’re thrilled that the show will be going to this truly singular city earlier than we had anticipated,” said Jennifer Hoff, President of Events for National Trade Productions, which manages and produces Coverings. “Given Las Vegas’ unrivaled status as the number one venue for some of the world’s leading conventions and trade shows, we have no doubt that Coverings 2011 will rank as one of our most successful and memorable shows ever.”

The decision to take Coverings to Las Vegas is the latest development in show organizers’ plan to make a strategic move westward following this year’s upcoming show. Given that the West Coast is a key market for tile and stone, and also home to some of the world’s leading architects and designers, Coverings has long been keen to return to the region. The inaugural Coverings show was held 21 years ago in Los Angeles, CA, and then twice again in Anaheim, CA, in its early past.

“In Las Vegas, we have the best of everything: an incomparable resort city that’s not only an easy commute from the West Coast, but also a top draw for those from all over the country, and indeed the rest of the world as well,” said Hoff.

Coverings is sponsored by ASCER (Ceramic Tile Manufacturers Association of Spain), Confindustria Ceramica (Italian Association of Ceramics), Tile Council of North America (TCNA), Ceramic Tile Distributors Association (CTDA) and National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA).
