Organizers of Coverings 2009, the four-day annual show set for April 21-24 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL, say they are preparing to offer the estimated more than 37,000 people from over 50 countries an educational line-up that addresses the current economic environment.
The sessions, with many offering continuing education credits, include the newly developed series, “Surviving 2009.” In addition to seminars dedicated to strategies and tactics for riding out the current economic storm, several live product demonstrations and workshops will also be available free of charge, organizers added.
He added, “By creating dedicated programming that squarely addresses crucial business survival issues, we’re giving show attendees the advice they need now more than ever before-at no cost, as always, and with no cutbacks to the rest of the conference schedule. We believe that the investment made in traveling to Coverings is a small one relative to the bounty of real, ready-to-implement advice and insight awaiting show-goers this year.”
Additionally, on April 22, the best, most creative installations using ceramic tile and stone will be recognized during the annual Spectrum and Prism Awards.
