Coverings 2016, held recently at McCormick Place in Chicago, featured more than 1,100 exhibitors of tile and stone products and services. While attendance numbers were not available at press time, consensus on the show floor was that attendance was up. Exhibitors polled during the show said the event was busy and bustling, with an elevated level of energy.
Atlas Concorde used the show as a launching pad for Atlas Concorde USA, a new company based out of Franklin, Tenn., featuring the tagline “Styled in Italy. Proudly American.” According to Maurizio Mazzotti, president of the new company, “We will blend American style with Italian creativity to present something new [to the market].”
