Arlington, Va.–Coverings, the largest international tile and stone exhibition and conference in North America, will host a brand-new digital experience called Coverings Connected. The multi-session online event will take place April 20-23, 2020, via coverings.com, to provide attendees with digital access to learning opportunities via live webinars, tile and stone trends presentations, on-demand content and an online showcase of Coverings tile and stone exhibitors from around the world.
Coverings Connected will further Coverings’ mission to grow the vibrant tile and stone industry and provide selected educational opportunities given the recently canceled Coverings 2020.
