ARLINGTON, VA — Coverings 2022, the largest international tile and stone event in North America, witnessed an 18% increase in attendance over the 2021 event, drawing nearly 18,000 industry professionals from all business sectors within the tile and stone industry, show organizers announced.
The four-day Coverings 2022 event, held in April at the Las Vegas Convention Center, featured exhibit booths in nine global pavilions hosted by leading tile associations and product manufacturers from the U.S., Spain, Italy, Brazil, Turkey, Portugal, India and China, show organizers said. Exhibitors represented 34 countries, they added. The show also included a wide range of educational programming, networking events and demonstrations that offered insights about the latest tools, techniques and technologies for tile and stone installations.
“We are extremely excited and pleased with the increased attendance and magnetic energy at Coverings 2022,” said Jennifer Hoff, president of Taffy Event Strategies, the Arlington, VA-based event planning company for Coverings. “The show’s global turnout and action-packed activities were key indicators that in-person events are valuable to tile and stone industry members who are ready to do business, connect with peers and suppliers as well as see, touch and feel products onsite,” Hoff said.
Coverings 2023 will take place April 18-21, 2023, at the Orange County Convention Center, in Orlando, FL.
