The National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) will celebrate its 75th anniversary at Coverings 2022, April 5 to 8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) in Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition to an awards ceremony, NTCA will host daily contractor tours, live demonstrations and educational sessions.
“NTCA has evolved from a regional southern association to an internationally-recognized authority on tile and stone,” said Bart Bettiga, executive director of NTCA. “One thing that has remained constant is our commitment to the professional installation of tile and stone. We look forward to continuing our legacy as the voice of the tile contractor.”
On Thursday, April 7, NTCA will hold its 75th Anniversary Reception from 5:30 to 8 p.m. in room N112 of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
