Coverings 2021

Coverings, the largest international tile and stone exhibition and conference in North America, announced programs that will take place during the showcase, which will be held July 7-9, in Orlando, Florida, at the North Hall of the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC).

Features returning for 2021 include international pavilions, tile, and stone exhibits from around the globe; live installation demonstrations; Coverings Installation and Design (CID) Awards, Rock Stars, and complimentary educational opportunities.

Complimentary educational opportunities will include Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and feature sessions, demonstrations, roundtables, live interviews with industry thought-leaders, and industry forums.

The always-popular Coverings 2021 Installation Demonstration Stage will return to offer attendees the opportunity to observe live, interactive showcases of cutting-edge tile installation techniques.

New to Coverings 2021 are the Coverings Lounge, Society of American Mosaic Artists exhibits, co-location with the National Wood Flooring Association, and extended show hours.

Stunning mosaic tile projects will be unveiled by Luna Mosaic Arts and the National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) in the Coverings Lounge. The NTCA will present a live broadcast demonstration of designing, building, and installing a mosaic tile project, highlighting the historical importance of tile installation as an artisan craft.

Coverings is partnering with the Society of American Mosaic Artists (SAMA) to showcase another dimension of ceramic tile and inspire attendees during the July event. SAMA will display two exhibits in the OCCC’s North Hall Lobby.

Coverings 2021 and NWFA’s 2021 Wood Flooring Expo, for the first time, will be co-located at the OCCC on July 8-9. Coverings 2021 will be held in the OCCC’s North Hall, and NWFA’s Wood Flooring Expo will be held in the South Hall. Attendees who register for either event will have access to both exhibit halls.
