ORLANDO, FL -- During Coverings 2012, Donato Grosser, President of D. Grosser and Associates, Ltd., will present "What Has Changed in Ceramic Tile Distribution" on Wednesday, April 18, 2012, at 2:45 p.m. in Room S330 A of the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. The presentation will examine the effects the U.S. recession has had on the distribution of ceramic tile. Who gained and who lost market share; how many retailers and distributors went out of business in the U.S. and in selected states; what can we expect for the next two years; which strategies distributors and retailers can choose to stay in business until the economy recovers; and when we can expect a recovery to occur.
