Coverings (coverings.com), the largest international tile and stone show in North America, has announced new opportunities for exhibitors and attendees to make meaningful and quality connections through networking. New programming focused on network-building at the show include extended show floor hours, digitally-driven introductions facilitated via Coverings app, and a celebration of all things tile & stone at the Coverings Installation and Design Awards and the Celebration at the College Football Hall of Fame.
In order to offer exhibitors and attendees with additional opportunities to explore all that the show floor has to offer, on Tuesday, May 8 there will be extended show hours, until 6:30 pm, and a chance to visit the world of tile & stone featuring happy hour specials, musical guests and lots of fun surprises. Afternoon happy hours will also take place on the show floor from 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm, Wednesday and Thursday. The happy hours are the ideal opportunity to network with colleagues and make new connections.
On Wednesday, May 9 from 5:30pm – 6:30pm, join us for the Coverings Installation and Design Awards. The Coverings Installation and Design Awards celebrate outstanding achievements in the design and installation of tile & stone in both residential and commercial projects. It’s a great opportunity to connect with colleagues, meet the winners and see the winning projects.
For attendees seeking new methods to discuss challenges and shared interests or to align with new potential clients for projects or business opportunities, Coverings has networking functionalities in its app. Users are encouraged to complete their attendee profiles to find like-minded or complementary connections at the show. Onsite, the Meet @ Coverings area will feature dedicated meeting space, creating an environment dedicated to fostering relationships and cultivating a connected industry.
“We are incredibly committed to offering all attendees and exhibitors endless ways to forge deeper connections in the tile and stone industry,” said Jennifer Hoff, president of Taffy Events, the management company for Coverings. “We are constantly looking for ways to enhance the Coverings experience, and we are pleased to provide networking opportunities and new ways to explore all the show has to offer.”
On Thursday, May 10 the tile and stone industry will gather for a tailgate party at the College Football Hall of Fame located next to the Georgia World Congress Center. Coverings attendees and exhibitors are encouraged to wear a sports jersey, choose their favorite college football team, and to celebrate another great Coverings show.
