Coverings Extends Deadline for 2021 Awards Submissions

Posted on 12 March 2021 by cradmin

Coverings, the largest international tile and stone exhibition and conference in North America, has announced Friday, March 26, 2021, as the new deadline to complete entry submissions for both the 2021 Coverings Installation & Design (CID) Awards and 2021 Rock Star Awards. The deadline for both competitions was extended from an original, earlier date to correspond with the recent rescheduling of Coverings 2021, which will take place July 7-9, 2021, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

The new deadline allows tile and stone industry members more time to nominate emerging professional leaders under the age of 35 as contenders for the Rock Star awards. It also provides a longer opportunity for designers and installers to submit their 2019 and 2020 tile and stone projects for consideration in the CID Awards competition. 

The CID Awards celebrate outstanding achievements in the design and installation of tile and stone in residential and commercial projects. Submissions are open to architects, designers, builders, contractors, distributors, retailers, installers, and other industry professionals who completed projects exemplifying spectacular tile and stone applications between January 2019 and December 2020. There is no cost to enter, and entries should be submitted through the CID Awards portal by or before the updated deadline of March 26, 2021, 11:59 p.m. EDT. Multiple entries are encouraged. No submissions will be accepted after this date, and no extensions will be granted.

Submitted projects will be evaluated by an independent panel of judges and awarded based on excellence in execution, inspiring and original use, and overall purpose. CID Award winners will receive a complimentary one-night stay in Orlando, Florida to attend Coverings 2021, where their projects will be recognized in an awards ceremony.

The Coverings Rock Star Awards honor emerging leaders in the tile and stone industry. Eligible candidates must be 35 years of age or younger and employed within one of the following professions: architect, designer, distributor, retailer, contractor/installer, fabricator, specifier, manufacturer, and/or trade association personnel. Nominations must be submitted by the March 26 deadline, using the Coverings 2021 Rock Star nomination form. No nominations will be accepted after the deadline, and no extensions will be granted.

Rock Star nominees will be reviewed by a committee of industry leaders and evaluated based on experience levels; professional certifications or affiliations; previous awards or accolades; prior speaking engagements at industry events; quantity of published works; impact in the tile and stone industry; and what sets them apart as emerging leaders in the industry. Selected Rock Stars will receive a complimentary one-night stay in Orlando, Florida to attend Coverings 2021, where they will be celebrated for their achievements within the tile and stone industry.

Coverings Cancels Due to COVID-19 Concerns

Posted on 18 March 2020 by cradmin

Coverings has been monitoring the domestic and global developments regarding the coronavirus pandemic for several weeks. 

The health and safety of our exhibitors and attendees are very important to Coverings. Given the public health emergency we are currently facing, we believe the only prudent action at this time is for Coverings to cancel for 2020.

As you can imagine, this was a very difficult decision. Coverings has been providing connections, education, and a global marketplace for the tile and stone industry for more than 30 years. However, with the limitations to travel, the recommendations regarding mass gatherings, and concern for the health and safety of the Coverings community, we have decided cancelling is the only course of action.

Coverings asks for your patience and understanding during this time of uncertainty, as there are many complexities involved in this decision which we are working to resolve.

Coverings is, as always, committed to the education and promotion of the tile and stone industry. Although the public health concerns caused by this pandemic have impacted Coverings 2020, we look forward to engaging with the Coverings community moving forward to ensure a robust industry and show for 2021.

Please monitor Coverings website, social media channels and future press releases as we work toward a successful Coverings in April 2021.
