Coverings Announces 30th Anniversary Events
Arlington, VA, March 12, 2019--Coverings will feature a wide range of interactive onsite experiences, including expanded favorites like the Installation & Design Experience and new activations in celebration of its 30th Anniversary.
The show will feature a range of commemorative displays showcasing the history of Coverings, with interactive opportunities for attendees to create and share their own memories. The South Lobby of the Orange County Convention Center will host a timeline with highlights from Coverings’ heritage and a 30th Anniversary-branded photo booth, where attendees can win anniversary t-shirts by sharing photos to social media. Exhibitors who have participated for 30 years will also be recognized. A DJ in the lobby reception area will incorporate music from 1989 as nod to Coverings’ launch year.
The Installation & Design Experience will expand its presence in 2019 with live, interactive showcases of the best tile installation techniques. For 2019, three vignettes will anchor the experience, designed by locally-based designers and architects:
* Reginald Dunlap Interior Design design; Welch Tile & Marble installation; ESTIMA Ceramica products
* Interstruct, Inc. design; C. C. Owen Tile Company, Inc. installation; Crossville, Inc. products
* HHCP design; Nichols Tile & Terrazzo Co., Inc. installation; Ceramics of Italy products
New this year, Coverings will introduce an Online Planner to help attendees maximize their time at the show by previewing key exhibitor introductions through the New Product Showcase, which launched last month. Guests will be able to explore innovative tools and products debuting at Coverings in advance and plan their visit by marking must-see exhibits within the Coverings mobile app to create a roadmap for their Coverings 2019 discoveries.
To further enhance the Coverings 2019 onsite experiences, many of the long-standing networking and learning opportunities will return including the Coverings Connect lounge, the Art Tile Courtyard, the Live Installation Demo Stage and The Stone Zone.
