ATLANTA, GA -- Coverings, the largest international tile & stone show in North America, has announced the winners of its 2018 Best Booth Awards. The program recognizes the standout booths based on their design, creativity, display of product, use of space and overall presentation. This year, an esteemed panel of judges selected five to win the coveted honor from more than 1,100 exhibitors, many of which showcase remarkable booth exhibits.
“The booth displays feature an array of beautifully designed spaces that incorporate tile and stone on a variety of innovative displays,” said Jennifer Hoff, president of Taffy Event Strategies, the event management company that produces Coverings. “We congratulate this year’s winners, who all contributed to making Coverings one of the most beautiful expositions in the country.”
The Overall Best in Show honor was presented to Florim Ceramiche (#1642), which earned praise for its distinctive design and use of space. The multi-level footprint of the booth showcases a unique portfolio of tile products. Judges noted the attention to detail throughout and architectural elements on both floors of the booth display.
Ornamenta (#2717) was honored for best “Open Concept,” as the booth exterior features open sides, allowing visitors view the tile products from multiple angles. The trendy fashion-forward pink hue of the booth complements the open design.
The best “Use of Storytelling” award went to Fiandre (#7646), as the booth features a Sophisticated and Sustainable Hub of Design Trends theme. Inside, the multidimensional booth shows how the beautiful product translates throughout a fitness space from the lockers, to the showers, to the workout area.
Inalco (#3331) earned the top spot in the “On Trend” category. The eye-catching booth displays a more contemporary statement with an electronic board displaying a stunning video about the brand. Judges complimented the use of linear walls that included three-dimensional samples of the product in front of each respective wall.
The “Best Ambiance” honor went to Anatolia Tile & Stone Inc. (#1019). The booth blends a wide range of materials that ties the space together with integrated lighting to create a welcoming atmosphere.
