Coverings Offers List of Activities for 2021 Event

Arlington, VA, June 28, 2021-Coverings 2021 will host new onsite activities and learning sessions geared toward the show’s segmented audience. 

One of the newest and most interactive components of Coverings 2021 is the Coverings Lounge. This space is set to host the Artisans in Tile Program and Presentation, a not-to-be-missed feature hosted by the National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA), as they broadcast the live installation of a collaborative masterwork of a freestanding mosaic with a Florida alligator theme; Contractor Tours, hosted by the NTCA, will take participants around the show floor on July 7 and 8, to see the latest tools, equipment and allied products for contractors; the Brand + Business Building Zone, a place for complementary branding, marketing and communications advice, resources and tools; and happy hours and giveaways from NTCA members, which will begin after 4:30 p.m. EDT each day during Coverings 2021. As previously announced, the Coverings Lounge will also host Engage Interviews with industry leaders, a mosaic project being developed by Luna Mosaic and the Society of American Mosaic Artist’s One Hundred Moments in Mosaic exhibit.

A fan-favorite onsite activation by the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) and the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando will make its return to Coverings 2021. Several TCNA member companies will donate beautiful, one-of-a-kind doghouses to the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando for a donation ceremony at the TCNA booth, 3233, July 8, at 3:00 p.m. The Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando will bring puppies to briefly inhabit the doghouses and engage with guests, making for a dog-lovers and tile-enthusiasts haven, to be sure. 

Coverings will also offer industry professionals both a virtual experience and an in-person event during Coverings 2021. The Coverings 2021 virtual options will provide the ability to interact with and participate in the show’s various features for those who are unable to travel. The virtual event will include online access to global tile and stone exhibitors. It will also host educational sessions for attendees to gain Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and other valuable learning resources. Coverings’ virtual platform for online attendees will be available in late June, and attendees will be able to access the platform and choose how they would like to participate during the Coverings 2021 registration process.
