"Over the years, Coverings has acknowledged outstanding and innovative projects featuring tile and stone," said Jennifer Hoff, President of Events for National Trade Productions, which manages and produces Coverings. "The Installation and Design Awards is a distillation of the past Spectrum and Prism Awards together with the TileLetter & NTCA Installation Awards. The CID Awards will spotlight contractor/designer teams who, respectively, have the demonstrated talent and skills to bring to life an exceptional aesthetic vision."
