Vision 2004, the conference program held concurrent with Coverings, the international exposition for the ceramic tile, natural stone and floor covering industries, has announced a call for conference topics. Vision 2004 is looking for individuals interested in presenting seminars, workshops or roundtable discussions as part of the professional development program. Presenting a seminar is an excellent opportunity for industry representatives to share their knowledge and expertise in a respected forum.

Topic submissions should be non-commercial and user-oriented, in any of the disciplines of floor coverings, ceramic tile, and stone distribution, marketing, manufacturing, design, trends, fabrication or technology. Topics should focus on application-oriented, real world, problem-solving topics.

Vision 2004 is scheduled to take place at the "new" North/South Complex of the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, from March 23 to 26, 2004. The deadline for topic submissions is September 30, 2003. For topic submission forms, please log onto the Coverings web site at
