Coverings, the largest international tile and stone exhibition and conference in North America, is set to take over the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV, from April 5 to 8, 2022. The four-day event is expected to draw a crowd to view the latest stone and tile collections, as well as installation and maintenance products and new technology. Additionally, an educational component will span three tracks: “Installation & Fabrication,” “Materials & Trends” and “Workforce & Profits.”
Coverings 2022 will showcase numerous global pavilions hosted by the world’s leading tile associations and product manufacturers. Attendees will find exhibitors from more than 20 countries, displaying the most innovative tile, stone, machinery, equipment, tools and other resources. More than 20,000 attendees from all segments of the industry will be able to interface with exhibitors to feel, touch and experience new and trending products onsite at the largest tile and stone industry marketplace in North America.
“Coverings has earned a reputation for providing tile and stone professionals with access to exclusive resources, programs and educational opportunities not available anywhere else,” said Jennifer Hoff, president of Taffy Event Strategies, the event planning company for Coverings. “At Coverings 2022, we are offering in-person the products, solutions, knowledge and connections needed to advance tile and stone businesses and their sales.”
