ALEXANDRIA, VA -- A designer's vision for using stone and tile in a project is only as good as the installer's workmanship. That industry axiom will be well illustrated during Coverings 2011, which will be held from March 14 to 17 at The Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV, with the presentation of the Installation Design Showcase. A combined live-action demonstration and exhibit, the Showcase will feature conceptual bath vignettes by three leading designers, and their creations will take shape in full view of Coverings attendees as some of the most experienced tile contractors working today apply their skills to the installation. The National Tile Contractors Association, a Coverings co-sponsor, helped to spearhead this initiative, which is in its second year, and several of its members who are Five Star Recognition status are participating. The build begins a few days ahead of the official opening of the show, and will be completed by end of day Tuesday, March 15. The exhibit will remain through the show's close.
