Home COVID-19 Coverings cancels 2020 show

Arlington, Va. Coverings (coverings.com) has canceled its 2020 show, which was scheduled to take place April 20-23 in New Orleans, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Coverings event organizers have been monitoring the domestic and global developments regarding the coronavirus for several weeks. Their decision to cancel Coverings 2020 is a preemptive effort to minimize exposure to the COVID-19 virus and is in recognition of, and in full adherence to, federal, state and local requirements that are evolving due to these circumstances.

“The health and safety of our exhibitors and attendees are very important show priorities to Coverings,” said Jennifer Hoff, president of Taffy Event Strategies, the management company for Coverings. “Given the public health emergency we are currently facing, we believe the only action at this time is for Coverings 2020 to be canceled.”

The decision to cancel the event was reached after a careful review of the unprecedented situation surrounding the COVID-19 virus, evolving travel restrictions, recommendations by public health officials, and the health of the Coverings global community.

Coverings has been providing connections, education, and a global marketplace for the tile and stone industry for more than 30 years. The organization continues to be committed to the education and promotion of the tile and stone industry.

Plans for a robust Coverings 2021 will be launched in the near future. The 2021 event will be April 13-16, in Orlando.

“We ask for your patience and understanding during this time of uncertainty,” said Hoff. “Please monitor coverings.com, Coverings’ social media channels and future press releases as we work toward a successful Coverings in April 2021.”
