“We are so pleased to be able to present some exciting news about our North American Distributor Award and the winners of our Ceramics of Italy 2020 Tile Competition through Coverings Connected,” says Emilio Mussini, Vice President of Promotional Activities at Confindustria Ceramica. “Although we are disappointed that we cannot be together in person to celebrate, we are excited to explore this new digital venue as a way to stay informed and connected during this difficult time. We believe it will open the door to countless more attendees who might not have been able to visit the show in New Orleans.”

Coverings Connected will additionally include Coverings’ annual Global Tile Trends Presentation with representatives from Ceramics of Italy, Tile of Spain, and TCNA. During this time, attendees will enjoy inspiring images and applications from a wide range of Ceramics of Italy members and discover this season’s top six tile trends.
