April 30, 2020 – ARLINGTON, Va. – Coverings (coverings.com), the largest international tile and stone exhibition and conference in North America, today released post-show attendance numbers and digital resources from Coverings Connected, which took place April 20-23. The online digital experience was the first of its kind and provided nearly 4,000 industry professionals with four days of valuable educational webinars and online networking opportunities.
Attendees of Coverings Connected consisted of architects, designers, builders, remodelers, contractors, installers, distributors, fabricators, retailers, and others spanning the global tile and stone industry.
Coverings Connected was created to provide opportunities for insight regarding significant tile and stone products, technical information, trends, exhibitor announcements, and other learning opportunities in a streamlined digital experience for those who had planned to attend the canceled Coverings 2020 show.
“The success of the first Coverings Connected is a true testament to the many dedicated professionals within the tile and stone industry,” said Jennifer Hoff, president of Taffy Event Strategies, LLC, the event management company for Coverings. “The online experience furthered Coverings’ ongoing mission to grow the vibrant tile and stone industry and provide top-of-the-line learning opportunities.”
Coverings show organizers prepared a wide range of Coverings Connected live learning opportunities and on-demand education for all segments of the tile and stone industry. Those who tuned in to the entirely digital experience listened to and learned from nearly a dozen highly engaging webinars instructed by notable thought-leaders and leading industry organizations. CEUs were available for specific sessions. Live chats and podcast interviews with industry leaders were well received by attendees. In addition, the popular demonstration stage experience was recreated online as well as trends tours provided through videos and webinars.
Most of the Coverings Connected content and handouts will be made available on-demand and can be accessed through the Coverings website.
Attendees of Coverings Connected, and those who were not able to attend, can engage with 900+ exhibitors through organized online Exhibitor Galleries and the New Product Showcase.
