January 25 at #KBtribechat – Let’s Talk Tile

Sponsored and Hosted by Coverings (@Coverings, #Coverings2023) 

With National Tile Day right around the corner (mark your calendars for February 23, 2023), and Coverings 2023 expected to be a banner-year event, which will take place April 18-21, 2023, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, #KBtribechat will feature a very special “Let’s Talk Tile” chat session January 25, 2023, at 2 p.m. EST. 

Join the tile community from around the globe for this special Twitter chat to connect with kitchen and bath industry specialists, tile and stone industry experts, designers, architects, builders, contractors, installers, distributors, retailers, media outlet editors, and tile aficionados everywhere. 

A lively Twitter discussion about the many benefits and countless uses of ceramic tile for specific applications, KBtribechat’s January 25 session will also showcase sneak peeks of some of the top tile trends as well as Coverings 2023 event plans and updates, so you can plan your trip to Orlando in advance. 

Chime in on January 25th and discuss ceramic tile as one of the most versatile surface materials and innovative design options, with many available shapes, sizes, patterns, colors, and finishes. It is also one of the healthiest and most hygienic material choices for residential, commercial, hospitality, healthcare, and other spaces, being naturally resistant to bacteria, dust and other harmful pollutants, among other key traits. Share your own experiences with tile during the chat, such as being slip- and fire-resistant, and the ways in which tile provides uncompromising safety without sacrificing style. 

As the tile community knows, tile is low-maintenance and easy to clean, with superior performance in kitchens, baths and just about any indoor and outdoor specified location. Tell the group what you think about ceramic tile’s sustainability benefits including being energy efficient and recyclable. 

Coverings 2023 is the preeminent international event for the ceramic tile and natural stone industry in North America. Only at Coverings can kitchen and bath professionals, architects, designers, installers, retailers, distributors, fabricators, contractors, and many others from across the world experience the full benefits of tile, trending products, beautiful vignettes, and robust educational programs at no cost.
