Coverings has issued a Call for Entries for its Coverings Spectrum Select competition, now in its second year. This partnership between Coverings and Contract magazine honors those tile and stone products that reflect outstanding design, engineering and technological innovation, and that set new standards in aesthetics and performance.
The Call for Entries is open only to Coverings 2011 show exhibitors who, may submit up to four candidates in any of the following categories: Artisan Tile/Stone; Porcelain/Ceramic Tile Wall; Porcelain/Ceramic Tile Floor; Mosaic Tile; Glass Tile; Natural Stone; Installation Material Systems; and, Equipment and Machinery. For a product that might not fit into these eight definitions, the judges will consider prospects classified as Other. Coverings 2011 is slated for March 14-17 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, February 4, 2011, with entry forms available at www.coverings.com/coverings_spectrum_select. Visit the website for entry details and fees.
Patterned on Contract magazine’s Best of NeoCon concept, judges personally visit the each entrant’s exhibit space on Monday, March 14 to see products first hand and probe for additional details that may factor into their decision, said Jennifer Hoff, president of National Trade Productions (NTP), which manages and produces Coverings. Spectrum Select honorees are announced the following day—featured in a flyer that is distributed to attendees. Additionally, all “selectees” will receive added exposure in an upcoming issue of Contract, as well as on the Coverings website.
“Coverings Spectrum Select is a badge of distinction that helps bring to light the extraordinary caliber of these materials and tools of the trade,” Hoff said.
