has had its eye on Las Vegas for years, so we’re thrilled that the show will be
going to this truly singular city earlier than we had anticipated,” said
Jennifer Hoff, president of events for National Trade Productions (NTP), which

venue for some of the world’s leading conventions and trade shows, we have no

its decision to take Coverings to Las Vegas is an exciting development in show
organizers’ plan to make a strategic move westward following this year’s
upcoming show, April 27-30, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando,
FL. “Given that the West Coast is a key market for tile and stone, and also
home to some of the world’s leading architects and designers, Coverings has
long been keen to return to the region. The inaugural Coverings show was held
21 years ago in Los Angeles, and then twice
again in Anaheim, CA, in its early past.”
Vegas, we have the best of everything: an incomparable resort city that’s not
only an easy commute from the West Coast, but also a top draw for those from
all over the country, and indeed the rest of the world as well,” said Hoff.
