Coverings, set for May 8-11, 2018, in Atlanta, invites thought-leaders to share fresh and innovative content that focuses on how to help professionals grow their businesses and enhance the industry at large.
Each year, Coverings provides the most innovative and cutting-edge education to the tile and stone industry in North America. Focused on the latest trends and need-to-know information, Coverings is looking for sessions which focus on solving problems and providing real-world information its attendees need now in their professional and personal lives. “Our attendees want demonstrations, hands-on and interactive experiences – they want to not only learn alongside their peers but from them, so we encourage all submitters to include planned audience-engagement strategies as part of their session description and learning objectives,” say show organizers.
Proposed programming ideas may include:
- Cross-segment collaboration and best practices
- Trends in products and design
- Innovative business and project case studies
- Installation techniques and evolving industry technologies
- Economic forecasting
- Engaging the millennial generation
- Health, safety and wellness
Proposals must be submitted for review by 5:00 p.m. PDT on Friday, September 8, 2017. Click here for more information or to submit a proposal.
