November 20th at #KBtribechat – Let’s Talk Tile and Stone!

Sponsored and Hosted by Coverings 2020.

Coverings17_black

Ceramic tile performs as an artful expression of both form and function, and its advantages reward design professionals and homeowners alike. Facilitated by modern innovations in manufacturing technology and international influence, tile is one of the most versatile building materials due to its many available sizes, colors, shapes, styles, and patterns. Not to mention, tile is a beautiful material that, because of its natural resistance to bacteria and easy-to-clean properties, performs terrifically in kitchens, baths and most any specified location. Ceramic tile offers benefits like no other covering product, such as being environmentally sound – having zero allergens, zero VOCs, etc. Tile is slip- and fire-resistant, and its inherent thermal mass reduces peak heating and cooling, helping to moderate temperature swings in a home or commercial space.

For kitchen and bath professionals, and architects, designers, installers, retailers, distributors, and many others, the place to see and experience the full benefits of tile is Coverings.

Coverings is the largest international tile and stone exhibition and conference in North America, which annually attracts exhibitors and attendees from across the world who are eager to experience nine miles of tile, beautiful ceramic tile and natural stone vignettes, and vast education programs. Coverings 2020 will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana, for the first time in more than 20 years, and take place April 20-23, 2020, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. With event plans already in the works, it is time to register to attend.

Coverings will be sponsoring two KBtribeChat sessions, the first being November 20, 2019, and, the second, February 19, 2020, just before National Tile Day.  Join the conversations!
