Programs and Activations Announced for Coverings 2024

Published: March 3, 2024

Coverings, the largest and preeminent international tile and stone exhibition and conference in North America, has released a comprehensive roster of both popular and new onsite activations for Coverings 2024, which will take place April 22-25, 2024, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The renowned, four-day industry event will deliver breathtaking global tile displays, invaluable industry insights and engaging networking opportunities through an unmatched lineup of special programming and show floor features stretching nine miles of tile and global exhibit space.

Coverings 2024 will unite thousands of architects, designers, contractors, distributors and other industry professionals for an immersive experience of ceramic tile and natural stone. Onsite activities, live demonstrations, show floor tours and interactive programs have been organized to provide hands-on experiences and real-time solutions for all applicable industry segments. Among the new and returning programs:


  • Headlining Coverings 2024’s new show floor features is the highly anticipated Outdoor Oasis (Hall C, Booth 7006), which was conceived and revamped from the popular Coverings Lounge of years past. Attendees visiting this awe-inspiring space will step into a mesmerizing “outdoor” environment filled with both interior and exterior applications of ceramic tile, highlighting tile’s seamless integration in outdoor settings among plant material and outdoor furnishings. The Outdoor Oasis will also provide a centralized location for showgoers to attend vital learning sessions, connect with tile and stone peers, and socialize during happy hours and giveaways.
  • The Galvanize Women’s Lounge (Room B206), a brand-new networking area planned for Coverings 2024, will offer a unique space for attendees to connect, celebrate and be inspired by like-minded women and industry peers. Both personal and professional development opportunities – along with a few surprise activations – will be available, with many of the leading industry women’s groups coming together to collaborate, build community, and elevate one another and their respective crafts.
  • Returning to Coverings 2024 is the Distributor Lounge (Coverings Courtyard, Hall B, Booth 1405), sponsored by the Ceramic Tile Distributors Association (CTDA) and the North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD). This back-by-popular-demand networking space provides tile, stone and flooring distributors a quiet place to relax and recharge when they need a break from doing business on the show floor. Light refreshments and snacks will be served in the lounge, which is conveniently located on the show floor in Hall B this year.
  • The Podcast Studio (Hall B Lobby), will continue to be an extremely popular feature for attendees and exhibitors alike at Coverings 2024. The studio offers established podcasters across the tile, stone and construction industries a unique opportunity to record episodes during Coverings 2024. Showgoers, no matter their interest or favorite genre, can stop by the studio to listen as podcasters record new episodes for their respective shows.
  • The Stone Fabricator’s Alliance (SFA) is bringing its popular SFA Cage (Hall C, Booth 6161) back for Coverings 2024. This is the ideal place for fabricators and other stone and tile professionals to gather, network and learn new fabrication techniques. The SFA Cage will feature daily demonstrations on a variety of topics, including how to work with and fabricate gauged porcelain panels that continue to grow in popularity.
  • The Coverings 2024 show floor will also include the return of the Artisan Showcase (Hall C, Booth 7259), a popular show floor display that will showcase one-of-a-kind decorative tiles and accents and a stage with live demonstrations. World-class mosaicist David Arnott will be showcasing some of his most stunning pieces throughout the Artisan Showcase, along with creating an Earth Day-themed mosaic live during the show.
  • A roundup of both live and on-demand show floor tours, including four curated Audio Tours, will help attendees maximize their time and experience during Coverings 2024. These coveted tours will assist attendees in exploring the show floor at the times that work best for their busy event schedules. Eventgoers can access four distinct audio tours focused on each of the Coverings tenets to see and experience relevant exhibitors and stunning product displays based on specific areas of interest or expertise.
  • The much-lauded Contractor Tours are coming back to Coverings 2024, providing tour participants with opportunities to join NTCA for guided show floor explorations of the latest tools, equipment and allied products for contractors, installers, retailers, distributors and specifiers. These complimentary, hour-long tours will kick off from the Outdoor Oasis at 11 a.m., between April 22-24, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
