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.
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
“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.”
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.
