Coverings 2024 Opens Registration and Award Submissions

Show organizers of Coverings, the premier international ceramic tile & natural stone trade show in North America, has launched its event registration and award program submissions for Coverings 2024, set for April 22-25 at the Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC) in Atlanta.

Tile, stone and design professionals across all segments of the industry can register to attend at no cost by visiting https://www.coverings.com. Registering early offers “advanced access to event updates, special program notifications, exclusive promotions, introduction to new product trends and innovations, and the opportunity to contribute to one of several philanthropic causes through the inaugural Coverings Cares program,” according to event organizers.

The new Coverings Cares initiative underscores the show’s commitment to serving the tile and stone industry and the Atlanta local community through a donation pool of up to $50,000. Coverings 2024 registrants will have the chance to select and support one of six vetted charitable organizations when they register for the event, including Atlanta Community Food Bank, Atlanta Habitat for Humanity, Ceramic Tile Education Foundation (CTEF), EARTHDAY.ORG, Gary Sinise Foundation and Tile Heritage Foundation.

Coverings will donate $10 to the organization chosen by each event registrant, who can then match or exceed the donated amount if desired. The Coverings donations will be bestowed to the designated charitable organizations for the first 5,000 attendees who attend Coverings 2024 onsite.

“Coverings is honored to give back to Atlanta and excited to return to the city’s rich culture in April, while offering an amazing event experience to support, unite and engage with the global tile and stone community,” said Jenn Heinold, president of Taffy Event Strategies, the event management company for Coverings. “This year’s event will be bringing together the most innovative minds through a new slate of meaningful learning opportunities; fostering invaluable networking with industry peers; and showcasing the newest tile and stone products, tools, equipment and technologies from around the world.”

Eventgoers will also benefit from educational content including live demonstrations, panel discussions, active podcasts and many hands-on activities. All learning opportunities and show floor activations will concentrate on Coverings’ returning core tenets: “Sustainability,” “Health & Wellness,” “Outdoor Spaces” and “Timeless Luxury.”

Coverings 2024 will also unite tile and stone professionals to collectively promote sustainable design, building and installation practices through special programming in commemoration of Earth Day, April 22, which falls on the first day of the event.
