Coverings (www.coverings.com), the international ceramic tile and natural stone exhibition and conference has launched the official openings for event registration, discounted hotel booking options and award program submissions for Coverings 2024, which will take place at the Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC) in Atlanta, Ga., April 22-25, 2024.
Tile, stone and design professionals across all segments of the industry can now register at no cost to attend Coverings 2024 by visiting Coverings.com. Registering online at this time offers several benefits, including 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.
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 and deserving 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 a game-changer for attendees and exhibitors alike, 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.”
The latest trends and innovations in ceramic tile and natural stone will be on display throughout the Coverings 2024 show floor, allowing attendees to see, feel and experience the products with exclusive access to a vast array of more than 1,000 international exhibits.
Eventgoers will benefit from a vigorous lineup of educational content, such as live demonstrations, one-on-one experiences, 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. Curated Earth Day activations will be dedicated to celebrating and reviewing the eco-friendly properties of ceramic tile production and usage, giving attendees worthwhile insights regarding how the sustainability of ceramic tile leads to a greener future for the planet and its inhabitants.
