"There are many benefits to selecting tile for a project because of its outstanding value proposition -- tile adapts to any decor and enhances the aesthetic of a project. It has a low environmental impact, is durable, easy to maintain and does not contain harmful chemicals," said Alena Capra, Coverings' Industry Ambassador. "The place to be to learn all about tile, as well as see the newest market introductions, is Coverings."

Benefits to early registration include advance notice and access to events and conference sessions, contests, promotions and insider opportunities that will quickly meet capacity. Coverings also arranges discounted hotel and travel packages through a variety of hotel partners.
