The annual, international tile show Coverings today announced it was cancelling its April 20-23 event in New Orleans as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. The decision was made in an effort to minimize the spread of the virus.
“The health and safety of our exhibitors and attendees are very important show priorities to Coverings,” says 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.”
This years event is not being postponed but indeed has been cancelled. Planning for next year's event is already underway. It will be April 13-16, in Orlando, Florida.
Coverings is working to provide online education to any interested, to be made available the week of April 20.
If you are an exhibitor or were registered for Consumer Day, Coverings staff will be reaching out with updates shortly.
